Will they eat live shrimp in the surf if that is all that you have or will the trash fish clean you out before they get to it?

Sandfleas and Shrimp are what i use for pomps. There's no need to use a whole live shrimp. I usually brine mine and use finger nail sized pieces for the pomps. If they're in the surf, they'll find it. You might have to beat off a few whiting and cats to get to them, but just keep re-baiting and tossing.

Switching to a Pompano jig will eliminate some of the trash fish as well. However, it takes more work and sometimes negates the numbers of pompano you'll catch by quite a bit.
