The best phrase I can use to describe todays surf fishing is " at least its a start". After almost two weeks of unfishable conditions it was nice to see a rod bend and put a few fish in the cooler. Randy and I caught, pompano, whiting, bluefish, jacks, and ladyfish but unfortunately not in any big numbers. The pompano catch consisted of 9 total but only 3 keepers. The throwbacks were all measurable so there are some bigger pompano moving into the area. Ten nice whiting and one small bluefish rounded out the take home part of the day while the jacks and ladyfish were all released. The water color was less than desirable and I received from calls from friends that fished as far south as Hobe Sound and a few that were up by Fort Pierce and everyone had the same off colored green water. Looking at the forecast for the rest of the week it looks fishable through Saturday and but it starts building again on Sunday to 6 feet and 9 feet on Monday. Lets hope the weather people are wrong and we can put 5 or 6 days of fishable conditions together. EZ Flea, Yellow Crab, and Pink Shrimp Fishbites all produced today and we caught a few pompano on salted clam strips tipped with Orange Clam Fishbites. The bites all came on the long rods fished 70 to 80 yards off of the beach.
