The cold fronts we have been getting the past few weeks have pushed a lot of our winter species into our area. The majority of surf anglers are out chasing Pompano on the long rods. Most of these fish have been caught 70-110yds off the beach. You will want to fish a 10-12ft rod to allow you to get the distance on your cast to reach the deeper troughs where the Pompano are cruising. FishBites remain to be a favorite bait option for those targeting Pompano. It is always a good idea to have a couple flavors with you when hitting the beach to see what they are keyed in on. Yellow Crab and EZ-Flea have been two of the hottest flavors lately. Anglers are also fishing with clams, sandfleas and pieces of shrimp to get the bite. You can fish a piece of one of those baits along with a piece of FishBites on your rig as well to ensure you have bait on your hook!
