Permit are an elusive catch. The best way to feed them is with live crabs, but some anglers prefer using flies to live bait. The challenge of catching permit is a favorite of many. Permit can be caught on shallow flats as they hunt for food or outlying wrecks and reef when they spawn. This collection of permit fishing videos features anglers catching permit on flies and live bait. Hard fighting permit can grow quite big and the majority of world records for these fish come from the Florida Keys. It is fitting that most of these permit fishing videos in this list are created in Florida. It is fun and exciting to watch these fish landed and released on video. I encourage you to take a few minutes and enjoy watching the top five permit fishing videos YouTube has to offer.

This permit fishing video is big fun as a few captains enjoy a permit on the line. The fly caught permit featured in this video is quite large and proves to be a trophy catch for these anglers. I like the close-up look at the rubbery lips of this clever crab eater. Listen to the excitement in the voices of everyone involved as the fish comes aboard after what looks like a wet struggle to tail this big permit.
