Hey guys I come down to Destin about 4 weeks out of the year and I do a lot of surf fishing. However, I have only once been down in March. I do a lot of shark fishing from the surf, but Im also looking to try to catch some pomps/reds/black drum. Any tips for catching these in early spring? Would Pompano Rigs work as well as a single hook rig? What about bait? Frozen Shrimp? Mullet? Anything is appreciated.


Thanks.

Pompano rigs are gonna be your go to rig. fresh dead peeled shrimp work, but pompano in march really love sandfleas. pick up a sandflea rake. not one of the walmart ones tho. There horrible. if you know someone borrow one or drop 40.00 on a decent one. Find a cut and cast to either side of it, but stay behind the sand bar. Good luck out there.
