Default 22 1/4" Pompano and 10 more Wow Wow Wow what a day!!!

It's been a while since the family has had a chance to go fishing. We were all ready and raring to go to hit the beach Saturday morning. When we got there, I thought there was going to be a problem with some of the June grass that was in the water, but the winds were light and the current was not that strong at all so there was no problem. With a good mess of sand fleas to last us the day, the lines were in the water around 7:30 and we were fishing. Got our first pompano within about 15 minutes and then wham bam two more pompanos were landed in first hour or so. Rebated and lines back in the water and another pompano, a bluefish, and a remora reeled in on the next hour or so. As I was casting out again, I noticed how much prettier the water was getting. I could see some fish swimming in the waves, that's how clear it was. Wasn't very long and we had three more pompanos on the beach and more remoras in the third hour or so. Lines in the water again and I looked up and I saw rod number four bending over. My wife was on that rod and she landed a 22-1/4" permit pompano. Oh what a nice fish!! Not 5 minutes later rod number two and three were bent over and we landed another permit pompano 20" long along with the last pompano of the day. Oh what a fantastic day we had!! And the only way we really knew our 2 largest were permits and not our regular Florida pompanos were when we were cleaning the permits, their rib cage bones are much larger and wider than a regular pompano. Different anatomy. Had to compare the permit and Florida pompanos against each other along with our Sport Fish of the Gulf Coast book to really be sure. Our total haul for the day was 11 pompano, 2 being permits, 6 remoras, 1 bluefish and only 3 catfish. Thanks JC!

Two permit in a day isn't common in our area! Very cool!

When I read the title though, I was hoping you meant a 22 1/4" Pompano

I AM SO INCREDIBLY JEALOUS. I was out from 7 to 12 on Sunday, and I caught zero pomps, and around a dozen hard heads! I had June Grass building up on my lines as the day progressed. Great haul man! I've had impressive days before, but it has been a long long time. Yours is certainly a day to remember! Thanks for posting! Tight Lines! YRM
