Permit of a Lifetime

November 23, 2011 By: Benjamin Clary

Brett Prettyman of the Salt Lake Tribune shares a happy fishing report from angler Peter Rigstad.  On a trip to the Yucatan Peninsula, Rigstad was satisified to catch a 7- to 8-pound permit.  Then, in his words, “I catch a really big permit.”  After a 40 minute fight on his 8-weight, a twenty-seven pound fish was brought to the boat.  Throw in some fresh barracuda ceviche, a few tarpon and an incident involving local authorities with machine guns and it sounds like a pretty memorable trip.
