    I tried a Spessard Holland on Sunday for a couple of hours before high tide with my wife and son. We had to leave early but only caught two small (1 foot) bonnethead sharks. Didn't see any pompano caught but we left about an hour and a half before high tide so I'm not sure if the bite turned on later. I was able to get BIG fleas in the surf but they were pretty spread out.

    Floridana, if you can find the sand fleas the whiting are eating. Two pompano this weekend, Sunday. I big spinner 100 plus lbs. 3 jumps and then goodbye

    Neighbor says to walk the beach, when you find the fleas the whiting are out about 15 to 20 feet. Key is to follow the fleas!

    I just got back about an hour ago from surf fishing about ten streets up from the pier and didn't even get a bite I was using shrimp and was hoping to net some bait but there was nothing. There's was a lot of people fishing and I saw two sharks brought in around 3 foot and some blues but nothing for me
