Im by no means an expert when it comes to surf fishing these parts but im pretty sure early April should be a good month for pompano fishing as long as the water temperature gets up in the 67-71 degree range.

Pomps on gotchas= hungry pomps!

If I'm not mistaken, the all tackle record pompano was caught on a mirrolure top dog. I've caught two on topwaters at west pass in gulf shores while trout fishing. Proof that they may taste great, but they're still a jack

Pompano like a water temperature above 67 degrees F.

The surface temperature may be real chilly while the fish swim in relative comfort.

Bundle up and go fishing! C2

Default Pomp bait

Hey guys im fairly new to the forum. I have always stopped in to check out the posts but just recently made and account so now i can say I'm a proud member! Now i know pompanos favorite bait is live sand fleas but do the berkley gulp brand artificials work at all on the same pompano rig as the real thing?
