Default 10 Pompanos, 1 Big 20" Daddy!!!

Took my family to the beach for a fishing outing and what a fishing outing we had!! We started Saturday around 11:00 AM due to the weather having to warm up some first. Shortly after lines in the water we got our first pompano. Quiet for the next 4 hours with only two more pompanos, but lots and lots of catfish. Missed a nice red, as he broke the line just as he got to the surf. Then my help left (my wife) for 30 minutes or so to go take care of dinner in the crock pot and while she was gone got 3 one after another. And one of them was ….Big Daddy Pompano at 20”!! It was my biggest this year!!! In the last couple of hours got 4 more pomps with lots of hard heads sprinkled in between. Finished up around 6:00 pm with a total of 10 pompano, 1 whiting and over 25 catfish. A busy day fishing and that’s what we like. Thanks JC.

Default 20 Inch Pompano

With that big Pompano, you've experienced something to which all Pompano Fishermen aspire. It's often a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Good Show! C2
