give it a check and toss a couple lines out and see how they come back and let us know! im ready to get out on the beach, last few months have been killing me, even the sound side of chicken bone was leaving some green/brown slime up the whole line all the way up until the last time i went a week ago, and the surf side has just been a joke.
my trucks out of commission right now, but PM me when youre going if the grass is clear and ill def try to make it out with a buddy if i can ive been trying to find some new fishing buddies it always helps to have a couple people so when it comes time to land one theres a few more hands to help each other out, nothing worse than having a nice one all the way to the beach and having to try to balance rod and tailroping alone and losing a catch... or rod... or hand lol
i was out at pensacola beach with two of my nephews by casino beach today at noonish, had a few drinks at the hilton and went for a swim, a few little bits here and there about marble sized and really spread apart, not very much at all except where there was a really really light outgoing current. saw LOTS of glass minnows and lys, and LOTS AND LOTS of 6 to 8 inch pomps just outside the inside bar in big schools, even saw what looked like a couple spanish shooting through about 4 feet of water cutting the schools in half
hopefully will be like that all week. didnt have a rod with me today, would have been nice.
well hopefully the water out at the beach will be as clean as it was where i was at yesterday for the rest of the week, then maybe some baits can be dropped out there without worrying about all that gunk on the line
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.
