Buddy and I started the day off with the couple of nice reds and then hit the beach front for some pompano. Wound up bringing home 9 pomps. Took a few shots at 3 nice cobia and saw several other short cobia. Fishing in the surf with pomp jigs tipped with fresh peeled shrimp chunk...
They are awsome fun on a trout rod instead of a surf rod with 2 to 4 ounces of terminal tackle...

We're heading down in a day or two, wondering if I should bring my 1860MVLP-CC Sea Ark??? Would love to get on some inshore fish.

I wouldnt come without it. I would target the smaller or leeward waters according to the wind with that boat. It won't get you on the pompano ( except maybe on the best of days), but you should be able to find some reds, trout, flounder, etc...
I used to run my g 3 1860 tunnel hull here a lot, but it was overworked trying to get to the pass on an average day.
There is plenty of smaller sheltered water that holds good trout and reds. Especially if you are flexible.
Good luck!
