Nice Surprise on the Flats

Saw this big pompano about to cruise past me yesterday as I was drifting a flat. I pitched a baby Voodoo shrimp at him and he jumped right on it. They are a tough, really cool fight in shallow water on light gear. A slow day otherwise,although I did eek out a slam by the slimmest margin, one of each species and a few mangrove snapper.

    woah big one. I only ever see them jumping behind the boat but can never get them. I'd love to see one of those fishing shows cover inshore pompano. I know the get them...
