    Ormond-by-the-Sea report, Saturday Jan 5

    Fished the last 2 hours of incoming until 1 hour after high tide. The surf was very rough. The 6oz sputniks could barely hold against the north to south current. Very little weeds though so it wasn't too bad. I did manage 2 keeper pompanos and 6 whitings. Even though I didn't get double digits whitings, the two pompanos grilled to perfection made the day. All caught on on shrimp fishbites. Sand fleas were no where to be seen.

    Tight lines,

    Eno

    Nice job on the Fish. That grilled Pompano looks good. How do you prepare it?

    I try to keep it simple: salt & pepper and any seasoning you like. Make 3-4 deep cuts on each side and make sure the seasoning gets into the cuts for more flavor.
    Add some lemon juice at the end (4-5 minutes per side) and enjoy the fantastic flavor!

    Whiting yes I do, but not pompanos, they don't have scales.
