On Tuesday Wayne and I motored out in search of permit.

Conditions were mirror-like.

We saw only one permit...got no shot at him.

Did see several tarpon including a group of five. Wayne put a live crab on their noses but got no takers.

Egbert gets around.

Here he is out on the end of a sandbar...waiting for a snack to swim by.

It was a beautiful day out on the water...we saw manatees, dolphins, a few rays and sharks.

Not much to report in the way of caught fish, however.

• Meanwhile, in other news...

• Tuna: To Eat, or Not to Eat?

“In 1950, when tuna usually ended up in sandwiches and casseroles, the worldwide catch totaled an estimated 660,000 tons (600,000 metric tons). Today that annual number has grown to more than 7 million tons (6.6 million metric tons) as the fish has gone gourmet and demand has soared.

”The tuna boom has led to a host of concerns about the global fishing business, the state of our oceans, and the health impact of consuming an apex predator.”
