I don't think there really is a limit I went out once in like 10ft surf and killed a few pomps and reds

When a 5 oz. weight won't hold bottom, I pack it up & head to the house.

Thank you I am planning on going tomorrow and I will sleep better tonight. Hopefully I will catch my first Pompano tomorrow!

Like said further above, if 4-5oz won't hold, I'm done. It's just not enjoyable after that and requires very heavy tackle

Same here; I go to the other side and fish for trout and redfish. JMHO C2

I generally start thinking about heading home when it gets this big.
