Pompano on the beach.

I got bored yesterday afternoon, so living close to the beach I grabbed a couple rods and walked down to the surf. I made a quick two hook rig and baited them with yellow fish bites. Before i could pick Pandora station a rod slams over. I reeled up a double and finished with four pompano in less than three hours. Fish bites really work well, especially with the sand fleas being so small right now. Set it and forget it, they last about an hour on the hook. Go give it a shot, catch em up!

    Got back last night.

    Friday was the best weather/seas wise.

    No pomps were caught. Caught a couple whiting and a few cats. Used shrimp, squid and cut mullet.

    Lots of beer was consumed and time wasted. It was a great few days.
