Default Redfish and Pomps 10/13

Myself and Dave (naclh2odave) got up and headed out to Pensacola beach for some surf fishing. We both had nothing better to do today. So what better way to pass the day than a rod in the water with a beer in hand and hope for some fish.

Got to the beach and rods were in the water about 9:30 this morning. The fleas were plentifull and big.Got enough for a few hours in about 2 rakes. We showed up to cloudy skies, wind howling out of the east pelting us with sand, and some rough conditions. But we were determined. About 30 minutes later, Dave's rod goes off and get's a slot red to the beach. A nice one at 26". :letsdrink

I was the catfish king today. I probably caught about 20 damn catfish today. But I finally hooked up on something that didn't seem to fight like a catfish and I pulled in my first ever Pompano. And it was a good fat keeper at 14".

Dave pulled in another pomp shortly after mine. The sun started to finally come out and the wind died down as well and it turned into one nice day.

About this time it was lunch time and we headed over to Peg Legs and ate some oysters and grouper sandwiches.

Headed back to the beach and I again continued to catch catfish after catfish while Dave caught two more keeper pomps.:clap

It was a much better day than sitting at the house. Dave took some pictures of the final catch. I'll have to get him to post them up.

Thanks for the call Jon, we had a lot more action than I thought we would. Glad we went.

Here is a picture of that shark, if someone knows what kind this is please post up. I have never seen one like this before.





The final tally was 4 pompano, 1 slot red, 1 mystery shark and 1,348 catfish. YOU ARE THE CATFISH KING!

I think I may go again tomorrow. Thanks again.

I forgot about the shark. It was one long skinny little shark.

Nice haul! From what I can tell, the shark is a Florida Smoothhound Mustelus norrisi , a cousin to the Smooth Dogfish Mustelus canis. They grow to about 3.5 to 4 ft.
