Default Pompano in the surf

When is the best time to catch them in Navarre? Except for sandflea what other baits are good for them? Thanks.

Still a little early for pomps. March / April. Fresh dead peeled shrimp also work good. Pomp jigs made by Conner (found in most bait stores around here) are excellent when you want to use artificial.

Also do yourself a favor, search j_purdy on here and read his posts. You can learn most everything about pomp fishing just by following him.

I have found the middle of April good, either sand fleas if they are in or fresh peeled shrimp pieces (not whole shrimp) Use scissors to cut them in half. 2 hook Walmart bottom rig out past the first sand bar in the morning and you should be ok

i caught a 16" pomp on new years day on a frozen sandflea right after dark. so it got me thinking that our abnormally warm winter kept a few of em here. shrimp are also good but i cant keep the catfish off of em long enough to hook a pompano. im gonna be back in town the first weekend in March to try and hook some more
