All righty folks it is May, I know some of you have some good salt water pics. I won't be salt fishing until March. Lets start a Pic thread of recent fish caught and old. Help me get through until I can smell some salty air again.. I've posted these before but I'll help get it started.

Juro,

Is that a trigger fish? I thought the poor man permit was a pompano. But I have much to learn...

Roger,

You got me all pumped up. I have a day scheduled with Alex on Monday the 22nd. Those fish are bigger than I would have expected for Mexico bones.

Gorgeous tailing photo! That looks like a backfin, although I could be mistaken and if so the tail seems missing. I have some tail shots I will have to put up... no I don't mean that kind, but I have hours of tailing footage from Acklins.

I don't have anything from this year - but I will soon - heading down to Key West next Friday for my annual spring 2 week tarpon fishing - hopefully I'll have some nice pics and video at that time...

Juro: Yep, it's a tail. Backfins are much wider at the base. Besides, I saw the rest of the fish.

Sean: have fun in Coz. The hot fly for the big fish was a Dorsey Kwan with the body trimmed thin. (I tie them round and trim on site if needed).

Here's a shot of when we had doubles on permit at Isla Blanca and a chewed up Kwan (also a good fly for permit)

I'll take your word for it since you were there and angles play tricks on the eyes per the thickness of the midsection, base is submerged. I've seen thousands of them waving at me in a single good day and have hours of up close and personal video footage from which I will have to prepare some mpeg clips.

Anyway that picture just stirs the soul!

These guys were filmed in the 'Milkfish pond' on Christmas Island. There were so many of them we packed up fishing and threw tiny bits of tuna to bring them in close. They ended up swimming around our feet and would take bits of tuna from your fingers.

Adrian, I love it. I can't believe how many are around you. So cool!

Not sure if I am attaching these correctly or not- first try at this- but here are some Texas bones- these were the only thing to hold me over until next month's Bahamas trip-
