We have a resident very-hard-to-catch permit that we see snorkeling near our island all of the time. Fishermen go crazy trying to catch him… well, on one of the last trips of the season Jeff Griswold of North Bend, Washington caught him and he’s got photos to prove it! Jeff came in December of 2010 on our Adventure Island at Glover’s Reef trip, and then came back again 5 months later. I guess that permit just swimming around loose was bugging him! It’s catch-and-release only at the Glover’s Reef National Marine Reserve, so he’s still there swimming around if any of you want to try your hand at him.
