Default Fort Morgan 8/20

Came down to spend a few days surf fishing to decompress. I spent the day fishing behind Gulf Shore Plantation, and can only say it was a good day. All catch and release today, but landed 6 pompano (1 14" and the rest 16"+) 8 and 1/2 whiting (7 of them 12"+) one nice blue fish (which explains the 1/2 whiting) a hard tail jack, a pinfish several remora and only 1 cat. All and all, not a bad day of not working!

Also, the mullet were in the first trough all day, almost thick enough to walk on. And from time to time, they'd just start jumping and roiling the surface. There was enough bait in the water at times during the day, that I was afraid to wade out. I never saw anything ripping through them like spanish or blues, but I it sure looked like something was feeding so I chose to stay dry.

Hopefully the chop dies down overnight and I can try again tomorrow.

Jim

All on fresh shrimp (even the blue). Based on what I've been reading here lately, I was suprised as well. But pleased as heck.

Well come on down, cause they're still here this morning! Two more keeper pomps, another one undersized, a slot red (I didn't think those were around till later in the fall) one whiting, and and handful of cats and remoras. Between 6:30 an d 10:30 a.m. I'll probably head back out around 4 or 5 this afternoon if it stays flat. Behind
Gulf Shores Plantation. I'm the guy with 3 rods up in sand spikes.

Good job today, it's sad when your catching remoras in the surf.

Finished up this evening with one more pompano, one more whiting and a handful of cats. Time head back north and chase dollar bills. At least I got the patriotic slam of redfish, whiting and bluefish this trip Not to mention some great pomps! That's it for me until October. Till then, tight lines.

Sounds good. I'm always willing to learn new spots or techniques, or just to have someone to chat with during a day casting in the surf.
