With Valentine’s day looming on the weekend, I had two days available to hit Brevard county beaches. Wednesday was my first available day and I traveled to the Northern part of the county. The public beach had a few fisherman and was loaded with beach-goers as the morning wore on. My morning was filled with a fairly steady whiting bite and one lone pompano.
Thursday took me to the southern reaches of the county. The beach was loaded with fisherman and a few beach-goers started to show as the temperature climbed into the 80’s. The crowd was different and so was the bite. Only a single whiting showed up along with an abundance of Pompano. Most of the pompano were between 10″-11″ but at least 6 made the cut with one big fish over 16″ and thick tipping the scale over 3 pounds. With over a quart of sand fleas left and a good bite the past couple days, the temptation would have been too great to fish again on Valentines Day and the weekend. I gave the sand fleas to some other fisherman still on the beach and headed home.
