 Permit
(Trachinotus falcatus)
 


 Distribution & Size

Permit (Trachinotus falcatus) These coastal fish inhabit tropical grass and sand flats, near reefs and wrecks. Permit are most common in south Florida. This member of the jack family can reach 40 inches and 50 pounds, but most are about 25-pounds.

 General Information

Very similar in looks to the Florida Pompano when in small size. Feeds mainly on bottom-dwelling crabs, shrimp, small clams and small fish. Spawning occurs primarily in early summer and again in fall. Permit have a specialized plate at the back of their mouth that helps them crush hard-shelled animals such as clams and crabs.

 Tackle & Bait

Anglers cast live crabs to schools of permit hoping to catch one of these line-stripping fish, which also take shrimp, clams and occasionally small fish.

 Eating Qualities

Excellent table fare. I am told the fish should be bled immediately after capture.
