so I ended up catching some jacks in the surf right by the hotel. Pretty fun. I ran down to the keys one day and fished a guide. We saw a ton of cuda but they would not eat. We also had a couple of good shots at permit. I had one permit follow me from 50 feet until I had the leader in the rod tip before he turned away
. We also tried fishing for snook around the mangrove islands which is something I'd never done in the keys.
