Today's weather wasn't the best. Got out to the beach about 10:30am. Wind felt like it was coming out of the east and blowing enough to be a bit uncomfortable. Hubby was thinking it was going to be a short trip, but we stuck it thru till about 1:30pm. I'm glad we did because the wind died down and we came away successful. Hubby rigged up two surf rods. One with a pomp rig and another with a Carolina rig. Meanwhile i went on ahead and started fishing for whiting. About an hour into it the pole with the pomp rig bows over and with my excitement while grabbing it my fishing line on my other pole rigged for whiting gets wrapped around the bowed over pole. So while im reeling in the line, my hubby is trying to untangle the line at the same time. So glad he did, and we were rewarded with two on the rig. It's a first for us catching pompano in the fall. After this hubby rerigs the other pole with a pomp rig and within an hour he's got one. We missed another one, but overall a great trip for us. One pomp about 12 and 1/4" and the other two almost 16".

One day I got tired of them stealing my bait on my typical setup so I took a beetlespin and added a small piece of shrimp on it and slayed whiting. On this trip just to make it even more rediculous with his Micky Mouse pole, I had a bobber on there too so my 4 year old could see it go under.
