Default Finally got some Pomps! 11-11-08

Until today, a Pompano has never been on the other end of my rod. I just had to solve that issue and go out to the beach.My friend Trevorwent with and helped out with the flea raking. After an hour and a half, my rod doubles up and almost comes out of the spike. I run to it and fight it to the beach. I see the fishswimming in the wavesand its a pomp! Measured out to be 16.5in. Trevor then catches two, like its no big deal. His were 13 and 15in. We had a couple more hook-ups and that was it. All caught on dead shrimp and sandfleas.

Great first!

I'm too waitingto catch my first beach pomp! My wife asked on a recentouting if any one ever catches fish from beachbased on my ability to get skunked EVERY TIME she's with me...just then,the guy down from ushooks into a nice pomp and my wife is bewildered how come I can"t do that...I explain, you have to bereally really really QUIET (honey,sweetie) ,and the fish will bite....he he! Peaceful fishing ever since.

Now,I still hope the fishbite but enjoying the quiet till then...Just kiidin (honey,sweetie)

I can relate because as many times as I have fished the surf for them, I only catch whiting, reds or trashfish. Something to look forward to. Congrats. Ken
