This morning I had a chance to hear from Thomas Rapone first hand what happened last night while he was fishing with Captain Ryan Erickson.
It seems that Tom finally, after four days of great fishing but poor capturing, found himself in the company of some tailing permit, and that he fed a large one with a diablo crab.
Halfway through the battle, he lost his fish (his second permit) to a lemon shark. According to Tom, it was both the best and worst experience of his angling career.
Captain Lenny Leonard supplied this photo to keep us happy:
Summer seems in full swing, as long as you can stay away from the heat of the day.
Everglades tomorrow….looks perfect.
