Default Early spring, early run

Mother nature is talking to us, its almost that time. Spring is in the air. Usually in Febuary we get tricked and get another cold snap which of course is possible. The air is full of pollen, and the carpenter bees have emerged, Every year when I see those guys, I get the garden ready to plant, and my pomp rigs tied. Just been staring at my pompano tree waiting for the first buds to appear lol.

So what do you guys think? Gonna warm up real quick and get that early pompano run this year? My buddy over at half hitch, and the guys he works with think its gonna happen sooner than later. Which leads to one downfall......early grass and slime.

Don't let an early spring catch you off gaurd. Get the surf rods ready, and the garden tilled. I feel like a kid on Christmas, I'm so anxious and ready. I have a really good feeling about this year.

I never hold my breath before the end of Feb- but it would be nice to continue having a mild winter!

It's lookin' good out there . I like the way the sand bars are setting up at JB.There's green grass starting to grow in my yard. When I stopped to buy bait yesterday there were rumors ,just a rumor, of pompano being caught that morning. got my fingers crossed. I hate cold weather.

Somebody needs to check Charlie2's pompano tree. You're closest Jim. Let us know if there are any fresh shoots.

I'm ready too. I still go out and try to find a few, which I have, but only a few. I have my rods ready, and rigs with and without floaters. This winter I have mainly caught them on the floater rigs. What about the water temperature? Doesn't the water need to much warmer before the spring run begins?

Yeah water still needs to warm up a bit. Probably another cold snap. We usually get one last one this time of year. What I've been hearing though is since we didn't have a truly cold winter, or cold for long periods is it probably won't be a big migration through, but that they'll most likely trickle in little by little. Either way it can't get here fast enough for me.

I agree! I was out earlier today scouting locations on the beach. Looking for those nice guts where they may be waiting for me to pull them out, and onto the grill!
