Pompano Sunrise

Arrived at my trusted haunt in Melbourne Beach at sunrise. I shared the beach with ONE other fisherman.. surf was about 2-3 ft , winds 5-10, and overcast.I launched my rigs loaded with sand fleas ,placed them in the spikes, and voila..
You shoulda been here yesterday.

    Oh man... you're making me can't wait for spring time run on the West Coast! Maybe I'll buy some surf rod and drive over there this weekend. LOL

    Sweet! I went out on Monday and didn't get a hit. I need to go try again.

    Well.. not to catch pompano on the West coast... I just use a 6' rod and jig for them. total different from the surf fishing over there.

    I do have a 10' surf rod but I think it's still short for over there.

    That's one thing on my list to try. I'll shoot you a pm if I'm planning a trip to the west coast in Spring.

    Yeah, best if you plan it on the weekend. I work on the weekday but I'll shoot you a pm when they show up. It should be soon!

    Sounds good! I'll return the favor if you decide to fish on the east coast.
    Tight Lines!
