Cape San blas is on fire!!!

Caught a few whiting, 1 shark, tons of croaker, and these things I cant tell what they are. Either pompano, or permit.

Looks like a small pompano from here but its hard to tell without a better pick. I caught one on a jig the other week about that size that was a pomp. My wife and son had been snorkeling and said they were pretty thick in the water.

Can't tell, you wouldn't show us! Hard to ID a fish from that

Last summer, my wife and I were walking the beach one night and found a school of thousands, maybe millions of little Pompano. All about the size of a 50 cent piece. They were so thick, you could scoop the out half dozen at a time! The school was probably 100 yards long and no telling how far out into the surf it went...
