Default 5-11 Johnson's beach

Well my sorry butt wouldn't get out of bed at 5 am when my alarm went off , so I made it to the beach about 8:00. Ladyfish weren't too bad today , I only caught 5 or 6 of them. I caught 4 pompano before the bite died , and 1 of them was a sure nuff good'un !

Nice job, King! I'm thinking about going on Saturday. What time have the ladyfish been showing up? If I make it out at dawn do I have a chance to catch a few Pomps before the ladyfish show up?

The ladyfish have been bad early in the morning, but if you can get through them the pompano are still there. Lately I've been doing best right after the ladyfish quit ,and they have been slowing down around 7:30 or so.

Good going. I'm trying again next week. Five trips down to DI so far this year and not a single pomp.

Yes sir. I was using pink ones and yellow ones this morning. I ran out of chartreuse, but the yellow worked ok.

Nice catch. I've been using "Electric Chicken". The whiting seemed to like them. I added a small piece of shrimp also. How big of a piece of Fish Bite do you use, I've been using about a 1" diamond?

I use the precut pieces ,and I fish with the whole piece. I tried the electric chicken and the pompano didn't like it. The whiting and catfish liked it though.
