East jettys, fish in the channel, normal pompano rod, pack your stuff into a small backpack cause your hauling the wife's stuff, keep your feet clean of sand while balancing on rocks, figure out how yer gonna haul the fish back.
And when you're walking out to the jettys, have your rod on your shoulder, reel forward. Nothing like having your flip flops kicking sand up into your reel if you're carrying the rod near your waist, tip foward.......

Kanaka is right own but if you go down the road another mile to the west at the most you will see another opening onto the beach just past the Eglin Beach club. Much shorter safer walk. Look for the cuts in the sand bar where the water runs out from the first sandbar.

Do yall have any advice for fishing the jetties as far as tides go? I've heard folks say that the last couple hours of an incoming tide can be best for pompano, is this true for fishing the jetties as well?

Thanks. I know practically nothing about tidal influences, and currents, and how those contribute to good or bad fishing. I don't have to worry much about it up here in Birmingham.
