This fish is darker than the ones that I am used to.

My largest Pompano ever was almost silver. Looked like a 'regular' Pompano.

I think; repeat, think, maybe that it has to do with habitat/diet.

Big Pompano. in the quantities caught this late in Spring. are fairly rare. They are in small schools of 'scouts' that precede the main migration of the 'normal-size' fish. They are big because they've survived the 'war'. Everything, including man, likes Pompano!

Maybe they portend another late run? C2

Good to see that you're catching some fish!

As soon as the Doc determines what he's going to do about my 'ticker', I maybe can go running-and-gunning on the sand again. C2
