I hope everyone has this Saturday , the 19th , circled on your calendars for the Snook Nooks Annual Customer Appreciation Day and Tent Sale . Some of the manufacturers that will be present and offering huge discounts on their products are Penn Fishing , Fishbites , who will be conducting their buy 2 bags -get 1 free promotion, Gulfstream lures, and Monster 3X , just to name a few . It only comes along once a year so do not miss it . I will be there most of the day and help you with any questions you might have about fishing the surf , getting set up with the right equipment for our winter pompano run , what types of bait and terminal gear you might need to target any of the species that are in our local waters , or even locations to fish . Freddy once again is going to have over $10000 dollars in giveaways and raffle prizes so come early for your best selection .
As far as a fishing report ,I had the opportunity to take Billy Carr and Brent Burford from Fishbites out Friday afternoon . It was a small window of time to fish and although we did not catch big numbers of pompano, the size of the fish made up for it. We ended up with 9 nice fish and the guys got to turn the handles and have some fun. Yellow Crab, EZ Flea , and Electric Chicken Crab scents all produced . Hopefully next week when they come back for the Snook Nook event we will have some bigger schools of pompano along our local beaches
