Pomps in the surf

Get them while you can. Find clean water and some sort of trough or runout. Caught fish on the outgoing and incoming. Most of the bites came on the far rod. Reds and black drum closer to the beach.

    Yeah. Still making the drive south. Heard of a couple pomps in Dina but very sporadic. I haven't caught any myself in Dina. Water is just too dirty up here.

    I got one today at Atlantic Beach despite the water being a little dirty. Was waiting for the SE wind to clean u the surf but it stayed dirty a couple hours I was there.

    Nice catch! Hopefully the numbers will be around the island soon.

    Daniel.....you need to give the Dina a try as soon as the water clears up a bit. !!

    There have been a handful of Pomps at my spot......I just havent hit em right yet, myself.....I left early Saturday since the morning bite was slow.....the few whiting I had were BIG !! Then the fish bit on the incoming all afternoon, with some nice pomps in the mix. ( my buddy's report )

    Oh, and if you are going any time soon...better beef up your surf rigs !!

    I had 3 rigs destroyed by big bluefish !!......saw one that was every bit of 9 or 10 pounds....spooled me almost, so I had to do something to save all my line, and running down the beach wasn't helping....lol

    Finally broke him off.....sucker jumped 3 times, that's how I know how big he was....then ran like a kingfish !!

    ....fun while it lasted, but my 14# pompano rigs were no match.....

    You were fore-warned.....they are thick right now.!!

    ...just sayin'...

    Steve, 
    im gonna give it a shot this weekend.
    gonna leave the shop a bit early Fri. And catch the last outgoing.
    I’ve  been getting my pompano rigs ready for a few weeks (gotta do something since the weather is bad)
    they “should” be here by the water temps, so we shall see.
    ill shoot ya a text Fri evening to let ya know how it went.

    Dang... new format & moble I’ve got it messed up...lol

    my gear should be good, 20lb braid on all setup’s  , all my 10’ & 12’ rigs have 6k reels for line capacity and the 9’s have 4K reels, 30lb leaders always. I’ve only had sharks break me off so far.

    Sat i’m gonna do the incoming tide & check the difference up here.

    Found a few fish yesterday on the island. Smaller fish and definitely more sporadic. Sandfleas was key
