Default Need report on water at navarre and help with pomp jig

Haven't been to Navarre for a while but last time I was there the green slime was so thick I left after about ten minutes. Is it still there? Also I picked up a pompano jig to try tomorrow since I can't stand to just sit and watch surf rods. I've never used a skirted jig because I've never figured out if I should put a grub on it or throw it plain. Any info is appreciated.

I have not fished a pomp jig much, but i do know that white is about the worst color for pompano, sorry. Yellow and pink are prefered. White is good for bonito. Some folks fish them plain and others will tip with a sand flea.

Those will work with or without bait. As of last week, there was a ton of grass/slime. Once you got a little west(Opal Beach)it cleared up. Not the case tonight. I worked my way from Navarre Beach to Pensacola Beach. Tons of grass the whole way. Hopefully we got some wind to clear it out. The pomps have def been around though.

Fisherdad you just killed my spirit. I had yellow ones in my hand but put em back. I've always had the best luck with with pink and white whether it was walleye and crappie or reds and flounder so I went with the white. That sucks, but it's still better than nothing

I've also seen a lot of the pomp guys trim the hairs just at the hook. They say pomps tend to strike short. I'm a terrible pomp fisherman so take that advice for what it's worth.
