Yes, you can catch them year round. March-May and end of September-November being peak times to catch large quantities. However, you can still land smaller numbers year round but may not be as consistent as peak times. By the time you get here the Spring Frye should be large enough to take home for dinner.

Besides a pompano rig, I'd suggest putting out a fresh cut bait with a steel leader. Blue fish are biting right now, and redfish will be coming on. Might pick up a shark, too.
