Anybody hit the beach for Pomps yet? Any luck? Just got a Penn Conflict 5000 with a 9' Offshore Angler Breakwater Rod, ready to roll!!

Heard of a couple pomps being caught on the island but mostly just drums

It's looking like a nice weekend! Looked for sand flea's sunday and couldn't find anything. Water was still pretty chilly!

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

Haven't had any luck the past two weekends on the island, though i only get 2 to 3 hours to fish. Hoping with the warmer weather this week, the pomps might move in a bit.

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.
