I tie a 3 foot rig with everything spaced at 12 inches: A black swivel at the top then 12 inches down to a 12 inch dropper with bead and a 1/0 circle hook; then down 12 inches to the next dropper tied the same way. then 12 inches down to a black snap to affix the sinker. This is used with fake sandfleas and cut bait.



I also tie a 'Charlie Rig' which is highly classified and done so to protect the fish population.



I also do a ;ot of jig work with a long, light rod. Works for me.



Come on Fall and the Pompano. C2

O.K. guys, I'm going to give away about thirty years experience in 5 minutes. You do not need fluoro to catch Pompano. It is very true that they have great eyesight, But they are a jack after all, and they feed like one. We use 30 to 40 lb. clear Ande mono for all of our pompano rigs. Three 5lb. Pomps on one rig can be a tricky fight in a hard surf. In cloudy or "milky" water we will use a combo 3 bait rig of 1 live sand flea, 1 artificial flea, and 1 artificial shrimp tail in glow/chartruese, as well we will use floats in this water in either orange or yellow for attractiononly. In clear water we will use beads either 6 or 8 m.m. in a variety of colors.And I do mean a variety, everything from red to christmas green, includeing orange, tan, light blue, brown, avocado, you name it. The female flea has the ability to hide her eggs, camo them as needed, so what color does she pick, whatever color the shells are in the area, after all Pomps don't want to eat shells. Also we will downsize the hook in clear water as compared to"Milky" water. In clear water we will use a 2, 4, or even a #6 at times. Ever bring back an emptyflea shell, if so your hook isto big. Switch to a smaller hook if that happens.I won't keep running on. Hope everyone gets something from this.

I use 40lb test ande all the the time for my rigs. But, I use a 40lb test shock leader too w/my penn 525 mag on a 13 foot Breakaway rod for my long distance work. I also use teaser flies as part of my set-up. Seems like the teaser gets 70 percent of the pomps. I like to run and gun and travel light. If you know that pomps are around but you ain't getting bit, move to another location. I like mustad size 2 hooks and owner light wire mutu (size1)for my teaser flies. They are easy to tie and the pomps don't seem to care how cheesy they look. Nylon thread, pink crimped nylon, a simple flly-tying vise,whip finish or some over hand knots, 2 minutes,and you are all set.

I was recently at your web-site earlier in the week. The pomp rigs and such are pretty darn good. Are your swimming jigs the same as Doc's Goofy jigs?? Your hook-eye orientation seem to to be 90 degrees off from Doc's.

Nice ... I'm gonna have to get some. Have you guys considered selling swivel jigs? They look like they would be pretty effective on pomps too.
