Sorry for the late report...I fished a couple of spots on Tuesday. After getting some live shrimp and fleas from Gulf Breeze Bait and Tackle, I setup just east of Portofino after sunup. After only one large bite (probably a black drum) for a few hours, I packed it up and headed to Ft. Pickens. It was more shallow and calm than the beach/surf was to the east. So after another slow start, I waded out to the first sandbar to cast my lines out to an outer trough...Man, What a difference that extra distance made! It wasn't long until I started getting consistent hookups. I kept 6 healthy sized Pompano and 2 smaller black drum. I let a few more small Pompano go and had something else break me off after a 20 minute fight (I'm thinking either a large stingray or a big drum based off of the fight). It made a good run at first but eventually felt like dead weight that wouldn't budge. All in all, it was a great day!
