Finally decided it was time to try some fishing in Florida. Boy am I glad we did. Got all set up and lines in the water by 8:15. Water and weather both beautiful. Very slow. No bites for over 2 hours. Nothing. Then finally a really good hit for a pompano just over legal size. Quite again for another hour. So quiet my wife fell asleep. I got a work related phone call and was on the phone when we got a hit. I shook my wife's chair to wake her up to get the rod. She went running for it. Total slack in the line until right at the end she caught up with the pompano and he jumped out of the water. Finally landed him and we were shocked how big he was. 21" to the fork and a whopping 6 1/2 pounds! Our personal best of 12 years of fishing for pompano. Not bad for our inaugural trip. Both caught on live sand fleas. Thanks JC.
