Spacefish hit up satellite beach for some Wednesday afternoon surf fishing. Armed with a full arsenal of Native Salt Baits, our goal was to bring home dinner, and baby, you better believe we made magic happen!
A few weeks ago, Damon and I met up with friend of Spacefish, John Killian Stumpf, owner and operator of Native Salt Baits. He was kind enough to set us up with a bunch of his products, including Brined Sand Fleas, Salted Clams in original, pink and orange colors, and some clam stringers in assorted colors. We’ve been dying to try out his latest baits, but were just simply waiting on a good day to hit the beach. Yesterday, with clear, clean water and a calm sea, the beach beckoned.
There were a handful of other anglers out there at the Magellan beach access, but they didn’t seem to be catching anything and packed up shortly after we arrived. Maybe it was just timing, maybe it was the baits, but we put our lines in the water and had pretty much nonstop action from 12 – 3pm on outgoing tide. We caught a whole load of fish — primarily lots of Margates, blues, and whiting. We also caught an undersized pompano, a few mystery fish and a palameto. Not only were the fish biting, but the water and weather made for a gorgeous day at the beach.
We were also both using Pompano Riggs by Couture, which got the job done well as always.
