I have covered several miles of beach over the last week and seen probably 1 legal fish. Good news, I have seen about a billion undersized fish.

We need a little wave action......

Right now I can't buy a pomp. lot's of small whiting . today I went for flounder and had a good day. released about 10 shorts and kept 3 12"ers. sting rays are thick, all of em moving east. remoras are a pretty common catch lately. a few days ago i launched a whiting head as far as I could. as I was reeling that in I thought what a huge remora, on further review it was a cobia. pretty amazing. been a strange fall so far.:D

I will admit to trying and failing three times over the last two weeks. A few redfish and a few whiting but no pomps. I too have seen plenty of juvy pomps in close. The water temp has still been in the low 80's and while it is crystal clear it has been too flat to stir things up good. I feel that after this cold front pushes through and we get some east wind to move the water without muddying it up, the fall bite should turn on.

South wind and surf! I did have a close friend catch 3 a week ago...before to north winds. All three were fat fall Pompano. He weighed the biggest one at GBBT and it came at 4.7 pounds. Haven't seen anything since the wind shifted. Good news is that the water temperature is coming down. Won't be long now.

The late C2 of the Pompano Posse would say that the leaves are just about to start dropping from the Pompano Tree. He was always right!

Might be worth it to drag a sand flea via a carolina rig and work the troughs and such. Running and gunning might be worth the extra effort. I went to Navarre pier for a few hours on Sunday with pistol grip in hand looking for pomps, but I only had 2 confirmed sightings. They totally blew off my purty jig.

Headed to Pickens saturday morning to see if any pompano are running the beaches. Does Gulf Breeze B&T have any live fleas? Going to carry the rake just in case. I will give a report after the weekend. Later BD
