No thanks; I've previously related my experiences with a shark when using a stepladder for Cobia. C2

This is a good thread; I'm looking for some pompano patterns to tie for the next trip. Pompinator looks awesome.

Once you enter the water, you become part of the food chain. C2

Over here in AL we wade fish the beaches with our fly rods for pomps. Favorite patterns are olive clousers and shrimp patterns (weighted & unweighted). I've got a buddy in Miss that catches a lot of pomps with a fly he ties - it looks like a hot pink bullet. His opinion is that you can't have too much bling for pomps and hot pink / bright orange are deadly. Sorry no pics here at work

We catch as many blind casting to cuts and drops-offs as we do sight casting. A lot of the time, the pomps are in 4-5 ft. of water. Takes a long cast to reach the holes. If you team up with someone, try using a spinning rig to draw them close (they follow a hooked fish) then cast a fly to them. The guy that taught me, and regularly out fishes everybody else, loves a DOA shrimp as a teaser.
