Went out today for my first attempt at pompano fishing. Had to go but a surf rod and the such and then headed to the beach.

Got out there and it was a little choppy but nice. Started getting some live sand fleas and casting out. I quickly discovered that I was losing my bait as I would cast.

I started trying to figure out how to hook them so they would stay alive and say in the hook. After many sand fleas and trips out to the sandbar I think I may have got it.

I let the bait sit and then my rod just kind of started bending, no running, no tugging, just bending. So I started pulling it in and it was some sort of fish that was apparently sluggish and had sharp teeth. After a quick fight, cut me off. I re rigged and got some more bait out quickly.

Nothing for the rest of the day except for some nice reds up close to shore!!! Didn't catch them, just watche them.

Good day overall, got rid of my farmers tan and learned a little. What else can you ask for, besides a fish? That will be next trip lol

Blaine,I think you might have hooked a turtle. sounds alot like what happened to me yesterday. felt like I was pulling on a great big wad of seaweed. I had to unhook this one though.let him go unharmed.

keep after those pomps, you will get your share in time!
