Default 10/16/08 east of Portifino

Got out around noon and was greeted by rough waves and perfect skies. Slight southeast wind, but 3 oz held my sandfleas perfectly still. Had a rod way out to a little before the waves were breaking (sandbar I assume) and another closer in. Both had sandfleas, circle hooks, and beads, Caught zip on the short rod. On the long rod I got two keeper pomps, a cobia about 15 inches long, a tiny jack, a huge crab, and too many catfish. All in all a good day.

I did learn to cast to different places in front of the sandbar. It seemed that the closer I casted to where I caught my first fish the more likely I was to catch another. It was in an area about 10 yards wide it seemed. Maybe I was just nuts, but if I wasn't happy with the placement I would recast. Oh, and the cast were really long since the fish seemed to be farther out. Also I had double hook rigs with one hook being black and one hook being silver. I didn't do it on purpose, that's just all I had. All the fish hit the silver hook. So no more black hooks for me.

When you fish for the pomps do you use the rigs with floats or without? Just wondering what YOUR preference is. Glad to hear SOMEONE is catching some keeper sized ones.:clap Too bad we can't see any pics
