There’s plenty of Pompano around the Space Coast right now! A great way to catch these fish are by using Pompano Riggs by Couture baited with fishbites in clam and flea scents and blanched/live fleas. This setup has been working fantastically for me and my clients.
The morning bite has been better than evening. If you can pair the morning with the hour before, of or after high or low tide, you’ve got the optimal window to fill your cooler. Apart from pompano, we’re still catching whiting, croakers, mackerel bluefish, sheepshead, as well as some slot red fish and black drum! And if you’re lucky you might just catch a trophy Permit! Most pompano and Permit are being caught on the outside bar (Zone 3). As for the Whiting and drums, they’ll be between the first trough in shore or beginning or backside or second bar (zone 2). Remember to find clean water and a good outflow!
I still have dates available for the season. Give me a call and let’s book your charter today!
