I fished Henderson last Sunday for about 3 hours. Not even a sniff. Used peeled shrimp with fish bites based on successful posts made on this site recently. Didnt see any sign of fleas but I have a freezer full so I didnt look much.
I grabbed a nice 17" fat pompano on Tuesday late morning after the low tide change. I used chartreuse fish bites and dead shrimp. The fish bites did the job. That was the only fish caught all morning in the area of Santa Rosa Beach that I was fishing. There were several surf casters out. I was expecting a red drum, but nabbed a nice early pomp instead
I caught 4 Pomps last Sunday at Ft Pickens on peeled shrimp just inside the sand bar in what you could almost call a hole. All within 15-20 minutes of each other. All were on the second hook of a double rig as well.
Just got back from my place in Perdido and got nothing better to do than to recap it all. Was catching consistent solid pompano all week; nothing under 13 inches. Used salty's pompano rigs (recommend highly) and saw no clear preference for color (pink or orange). Used sand flea fishbites tipped...
Quick trip after I got work done. Setup by 515. Had 4 pompano and a black drum in the first 30 minutes. Got my first double this season.
Had a slot red break off right at my feet. I was really horsing it in because I swore it was another double of pompano by how it was swimming in and...
Been steady so far. Got a limit of Spring sized Pompano.
My son spent 20minutes wrestling this black. He managed to do almost all of It by himself. The last 10 yds he could t get him through the shore break. The 12’ split grip is shoulder high on him so it’s rough but he did really well.
Been fairly steady this morning. So far 4 pomps(1 border line keeper that went back, 2 solid fish) and a total cluster from a blitz of bull reds. My boy can’t handle these 12’ rods without some help so when we doubled on reds it was a total disaster. Two broke off, one straightened hook, and...
Nothing stellar but I have been really enjoying fishing with my son. Pompano have been basically 1-2 each evening. The redfish have been picking up and kind of making it hard to catch pomps.
We finally started to see some sand flea colonies and the bigger ones have been almost instant redfish.
