Huguenot Surf Fishing

I went to Huguenot twice this past week, Sunday on the falling low tide (last 2 hours) morning tide and last Monday on the Incoming tide first 2 hours. Soaked frozen clams and dead shrimp with little to no action, 1 bite both days.... Has anyone heard of any pompano starting up or down the beaches? Also, does anyone know if anyone has live sand fleas or have you see any of any size on the beaches yet?

    Rick's had live fleas a couple of weeks ago.  I don't know of any pompano in Duval yet.  Daytona and beyond have 'em.  Hopefully they'll be here soon.

    The pompano still south of ormond mostly. Everyone should have live fleas....most of the ones the bait shop had were coming from st Augustine.

    Back in the middle of February I didn't think they were here even though the water was quite warm but I met a guy who just came from the saint Augustine Pier and he saw two caught in the 14 15 inch and then a day or two later second or third week of February I can't recall what day it was but I got four  keepers in matanzas inlet on the south side of the bridge behind the convenience store where the surfers hang out

    Went fishing at Hanna last Saturday 2 hours before the low and hot three pomps, two were keepers at  12 incheas and one was a throwback at 10 3/4.  Took home 8 whiting too. Water was brown but they were there.  Used clams, sand fleas and FDS.
