With many pompano sight fishing trips in the coming weeks, especially in late March and early April, we got out this morning to do some looking around. Met my friend and website designer, Randy Hamilton, at 9am and headed towards the Pass. Slow-cruised the beach until we found an 1/8 mile stretch of relatively clean water and started looking. As predicted, we found some pompano relating to deeper holes and washouts. We saw 7 inactive pompano in a 45 minute period but well-placed casts couldn’t entice a bite. They acted like they didn’t even see our Gulp! Ghost Shrimp and orange/pink pompano jigs. Most fish seemed to be quality pompano in the 2-3# range and the numbers will improve drastically with warmer temps, warmer water and with any southerly winds. Soon, very soon.
