Default Sickling permit

For those of you who plan to go fishing for permit, here is a 20 sec video (two resolutions) of what they can look like when their strobes are both on and off. This was not a bright sunny day and the video was taken through a polarizing filter - so it will look nearly identical to what you'd see through sunglasses.

I spotted this fish while a passenger/video guy in a boat doing probably 25 mph while crossing this "lake". The fish was at least 250 yds off when I spotted his strobe. For DIY guys on their first trip to the tropics it's handy to know what your quarry looks like

The first is 1 megabyte the second is 4 megabytes. I don't use youtube anymore since google bought it., so both are wmv files and not flash.

Cool videos, thanks for sharing. Is it the tail or dorsal fin that is 'flashing'?

Your welcome. I figured some guys might like to see what they will be looking for. I remember going to the library when I moved to Colorado and looked at all the elk pictures I could find before hunting season since I'd never seen one.

That's the tail. Often there will be two or three together or even large schools, and their flashes are definitely distinctive. Other times they just look like new mangrove shoots where you know there aren't any.
