I think Sept/ Oct there is a fall run which is around the time the water temp starts changing. After the first "cold snap", I usually start fishing for pomps/ flounder as they start the annual move. The june grass is still here in Destin but if it clears I'll be trying for pomps too. Gold hooks with sand fleas are killer.

Yes they do! I seem to do better in the fall vs. spring. You can catch pomps thru November often into December. It gets a bit chilly out there starting in November. Good luck!

Generally the best times of the year for pompano fishing, in my experience anyways, with a very experienced pompano junkie. Bigger fish and more of 'em.

Default Fall Pompanos

I fish both runs, but like the Fall run a bit better because I believe the fish are larger. I think that it's because thy've been sucking up bait and getting fat all Summer. When the (water temps) starts getting cooler, they start moving East and later, South.

This Fall Run also affects many species of migratory fish. They're moving already, just fattening up a bit more for the move South where they will spend the Winter.

Bundle up and you can catch Pompano(and other fish) well into December. JMHO C2
