im so pumped. first shark trip of the season. got lots of bait in the freezer and gonna catch some freash bait tomorrow. hopefully the weather coorperates like tonight. expect some pics sunday :thumbup:
it was nice gettin out there for a bit, even though all i got was a chewed up fish. 3mb was slow while i was there just a few runs and two hookups. you already heard about my ass plant but ill let everyone else know, had one of the hook ups apparently not hooked really well, while pumping and reeling the hook pulled free and i went flyin back on my back side, ended up only having a little blacktip right around 3ft total length only like 30ish at the fork so a real tease of a night
round two soon man, i might just have to break down til i get a yak and bring out the surfboard to paddle out bait, even risking hands is better than wading out that just felt sketchier than usual too many baitfish around for comfort and too dark lol
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...
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...
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.
