Frequent Orvis Travel customer Bob Cosgriff was on the outer islands of the Bahamas looking for large bonefish and found this fish of a lifetime. Bob says they had tough weather the whole trip and eventually gave up on the bonefish and decided to fish for barracuda. Bob’s guide spotted a smaller permit and couldn’t get it interested. Then this one showed up and was obviously very hungry. He says that the permit ate a size 4 Kung Fu Crab, and he fought it for 45 minutes on his Helios before bringing it to hand. He also caught some nice ‘cudas on the trip, as evidenced by the photos below.
