Pompano fishing

You'll see rods set up all along the beach now. It's pompano time! Once you get set up, all you have to do is sit back, have a cup of coffee, and wait for a hit...or so it appears.

Sections of PVC pipe are cut and placed in the sand for rod holders.

That isn't a wheelbarrow. It's a fishing cart in disguise!

Ah ha, so this is the bait they use for pompano: sand fleas.

I am shown the orange-colored roe (eggs) which pompano are really after. Ugh! article: How to Surf Fish for Pompano.

Thanks so much! I wish that these would withstand our winter. Don't forget to smell them!
