Default Pompano rig???

Ok I have had some luck pompano fishing but not much. I'm using 20lb mono line and tying a "chicken rig" with 2 eagle claw lazer sharp 2/0 circle hooks and 2oz pyramid weight. My question is should I be putting beads/ floats on the line with the hooks? I'm using fresh peeled shrimp and sand fleas when I can find them. Thanks for any advice!

you might try flourocarbon leader and I like the little bead floaters. Also used to buy a foam can coolie in red or orange and tear a lil peice off and put it on the belly of the flea to resemble eggs and had more hookups than the ones without. good luck

I use 15lb mono for my rigs. I have used fluoro a good bit and didn't have much if a difference in bites although it certainly doesn't hurt to use it. I use the micro floats as well and wouldn't consider pomp fishing without them

Thanks for the advice! I have looked for the micro floats and have not been able to find them. Anyone know where i could find them around Destin or South Walton area?

half hitch in destin usually has them . also additionally 2/0 may be a bit large but i dont use eagle claw hooks so not sure what their 2/0 hooks compare to, but for refernace i use #2 and sometimes smaller owner hooks . pomps have pretty small mouths ,so not sure if this makes a diiferance or not. sounds like your doing everything right. when i first started it was more of learning to read the surf and try new areas thing for me .. tight lines
