Florida Pompano Fishing Reports from Our Damn Good Guides. See more florida pompano fishing reports.

    Finally the wind machine stopped for the Palm Beaches. Calm seas, light variable winds made for epic fishing. The sea weed along the beaches was still present, but the calm waters allowed for the sea weed to settle and anglers to sight fish crystal clear waters. Beach fishing was fantastic the past week, calm waters allowed for bait schools to school in troughs along the beach. Plenty of bait signals predator species like snook, tarpon, jacks and sharks to feed on these bait schools. Snook could be seen cruising the shorelines in search of there next meal. Not far behind the snook, tarpon allowed anglers to sight fish and present live baits and DOA Terror Eyz in there path creating drag screaming action. Inlet action for snook stayed consistent, DOA C.A.L. 3" shad tail in Mole’ rigged with a 3/8oz jig, excellent bait of choice as well as live baits. Tarpon, jacks, sharks and snapper all species that offered steady action . Snapper fishing provided plenty of action for anglers along rock jetties and drop offs. Inshore fishing anglers had a blast targeting big jacks on top water Rapala skitter walks, also catching bluefish and mackerel. Docks, sea walls and drops offs all great areas to target a plethora of species. Snook, tarpon, jacks always main target, but sometimes we are surprised with species we don’t see often in the ICW. This weeks surprise catch was an African pompano, caught by a JR angler. Well that is the fishing reply for the past week, hope you all enjoyed. Remember you can’t catch them from the couch, so get out there and get hooked up. Tight Lines
