The middle of December graced Playa Blanca with clear, cool skies and ridiculous amounts of Permit. When the plane unloaded on Saturday December 9th we were greeted by Josh and David Flanders and their Buddies Chris and Mike who were all in from Marthas Vinyard and more than ready to fish. Peter Hodgson and wife Juanita traveled to the Yucatan from Toronto and last but not least was the familiar face of Chuck Foteen. As the gang headed for Playa, via truck, the wind emerged from the North and began to howl. The front from the North was present for the majority of the week but the winds disappeared mid way thru. The mornings were chilly but the skies were blue. Everyone got in on the action throughout the week but Wednesday stole the show. On Wednesday Peter Grand Slammed with guide Jorge, David and Mike released 3 Permit with Carlos, Chuck caught endless amounts of bones and a Permit with Eladio and Josh and Chris both super slammed with 6 (yes 6) Permit releases at the hands of guide David!! The week in a whole was amazing. Every angler who was yet to conquer the mighty Permit did so and Peter added to his totals closing the week with a 10 fish week. That my friends is a very Merry Christmas!
