It was a penn prevail 12' and 2 of the guides busted on my first cast. Good thing I had the receipt for it , dated from 12/01/2014. Bass pro shop is always great with their customers and offered a full refund since they do not carry the brand anymore. So I just offered to pay $10 extra and got un upgrade. New rod for tomorrow!!!
Falling tide beach side the past weeks mornings, coupled with a north wind to make it even lower, doesn't usually bode well for me in the surf. Seldom bother under those conditions, although flounder mornings lately do fairly well early, no matter the tide.
Went past few evenings after tide turned, and caught a couple keeper whiting, 14" red, and my friend a small but keeper flounder. Some lady fish too of course.
Quick trip after I got work done. Setup by 515. Had 4 pompano and a black drum in the first 30 minutes. Got my first double this season.
Had a slot red break off right at my feet. I was really horsing it in because I swore it was another double of pompano by how it was swimming in and...
Just got back from my place in Perdido and got nothing better to do than to recap it all. Was catching consistent solid pompano all week; nothing under 13 inches. Used salty's pompano rigs (recommend highly) and saw no clear preference for color (pink or orange). Used sand flea fishbites tipped...
Been steady so far. Got a limit of Spring sized Pompano.
My son spent 20minutes wrestling this black. He managed to do almost all of It by himself. The last 10 yds he could t get him through the shore break. The 12’ split grip is shoulder high on him so it’s rough but he did really well.
Been fairly steady this morning. So far 4 pomps(1 border line keeper that went back, 2 solid fish) and a total cluster from a blitz of bull reds. My boy can’t handle these 12’ rods without some help so when we doubled on reds it was a total disaster. Two broke off, one straightened hook, and...
Nothing stellar but I have been really enjoying fishing with my son. Pompano have been basically 1-2 each evening. The redfish have been picking up and kind of making it hard to catch pomps.
We finally started to see some sand flea colonies and the bigger ones have been almost instant redfish.
