We rejoin host Henry Waszczuk on his visit to the Turneffe Atoll resort in Belize and this time he's in search of the hard pulling Permit. One third of the angler's magical grand slam, Permit have amazing reserves of strength, speed and stamina, add to that their beautiful colouration of a dark grey and bottle green back graduating to a white belly with vivid yellow markings and they make for one desirable catch. Henry's fishing the inside water flats of the island in about 3ft of water, looking for the the black dorsal fins breaking the water as a tell tale sign of a shoal. Henry's using a hermit crab bait on his lightweight spinning gear and although none of the Permit he catches approach the all tackle record of 60lbs (27.2kgs) caught in Brazil, they are still decent fish providing long tough battles. The programme contains some great tips and advice on how to target and successfully hook these fantastic fish and there's also another great recipe from Dr BBQ Ray Lampe, this time it's Blackened Grouper prepared on the grill.
