Default Best Navarre Beach Access for Pompano?

I'm thinking about heading out to Navarre Beach Saturday morning to give Pompano a try for the first time this year, anybody have a recommendation on a particular beach access is better than others? I'll be taking my 2 boys who have never caught a Pompano! Looking for good fishing and as few tourists as possible so I'm thinking the beach access points past the condos are best for that.

Any place where there is washout / hole in the sandbar. They do move, so park, and look, locate, and fish. You will have better action in a wash out

You can head that way or park at the last access to the east of the pier and walk east towards destin until you find a good hole. Tourist are never too far from the access points so it only takes a little walking to get away from people. I like taking a hike down the beach towards destin on the Air Force property.

So that area is now open to the Public? Last time I was out there it was gated and some of kind of state park or something and I think you had to pay to access there.

It's open and you don't have to pay. As far as I know, I haven't been out there since last fall.

With low tide at 6PM and high at 1130PM (meaning incoming tide) I plan to fish behind the Crab Trap. I plan to be there about 3 or 4 and fish until a little after dark.

EDIT: Never mind. Wrong beach.

no, you can't go past the fence on to the airforce property. you can fish from the pier to the fence though.

The attached picture shows the beach East of the last beach access East of the Navarre Pier. It looks like there is one hole before you get to the Air Force property line and 3 holes just past the Air Force property line that might be good. I know, I'm sure location of the holes have changed some but these are the areas I'm looking for would be my guess.

The holes change fast so don't expect it to be exactly the same. Really I'd stay in the national seashore way less crowded there.

By national seashore way do you mean Navarre Beach Marine Park? The pic I posted above is the Eastern side of Navarre Beach Marine Park which is on your left when you go over the bridge and onto Navarre Beach.
