Quick Pompano Trip

Got out to do a little pompano fishing over the weekend. A little windy for the long stick but we managed  4 on fly and 6 more on spin. Could have had way more but figured i'd go in early and get some work done at home. Kept 6 to join me for lunch and dinner. No studs, mostly 14-17" pomps. Thrown in a assortment of bluefish, ladyfish, and jacks to around out the day.

    Good work. What kind of flies where you using? and what depth were you catching?

    I use a mantis shrimp pattern I tie myself that is heavily weighted. 5-10ft

    Usually fish the big bend but am headed down to Hutchinson Island this weekend and am hoping to get into some pomps.  Have a kayak.  What general area were you fishing, if you don't mind me asking, and what bait/artificial on the spin tackle?

    Shrimp or pompano jigs.
