Navarre Surf Report 11/24 and Black friday 11/26
With the old man in town we planned on going out with Steve again in the boat wednesday, but with the wave forecast we decided to spend the day surf fishing with the girls instead.
Turned out to be a gorgeous fun day of fishing. Fleas were plentiful on both trips, caught enough for a few more trips. The first day we ended up with two keeper pomps, a few catfish, and one ray in about 4 hrs of fishing from 1-5pm. Was an incoming tide I believe both days. The man of war were everywhere, if your out there watch out, I was pulling junk off my line when I happened to brush my hand on a tentacle and it stung pretty bad for a bit, but nothing I couldnt handle, luckily I am not allergic, which is a surprise.
Second day of fishing was just me and my dad, had our good friend Mike and his son come out for an hour, but they didnt last long in the wind and rain. It was windy, cold, and rainy for most the time we were out there, but by far my best day of surf fishing yet. We didnt make it out until around 11am or so and fished until about 3:30pm. First spot we hit yielded one pomp. We then moved to another spot where we caught the rest of the fish. We ended up with 4 more pomps, one slot red, a bluefish, a small ray, and a few catfish at the next spot.
It was sunny for the first hour we were out there, then it rained for 5 minutes, sun came back out and another ban of rain came which never left. The bite died down at about 2:30 so we caught all of our fish in about 3 and a half hours.
All fish were caught on fresh and frozen sand fleas and fresh dead shrimp. We were using my homemade two hook pomp rigs with one orange cork above one hook and one chartreuse/orange polka dot cork above the other hook. A flea on one hook and shrimp on the other. They seemed to really like that color combo. Most of our fish came on the shrimp. Had to use 4oz pyramid sinkers to keep the baits out there both days.
Was a fun week fishing with my dad and friends.
