The weather has started to heat up and water temperatures are on the rise. The best times for the surf has been early morning to mid afternoon and then again late afternoon to the evening and after dark. The pompano bite has been hot early with several limits coming in if you’re willing to work at it. Be willing to make a move, and read the beach and the surf to find that perfect spot and make super long casts. Bait of choice has been fresh shrimp, live sand fleas, small crabs, along with fish bites and fish gum on standard pompano rigs with small pearlized beads.
Closer to shore, the bite has been smaller whiting, blue runners, and spots along with a few smaller sharks mixed in chasing the pods of bait fish.
