I love catching pompano in the surf, but I don't think I caught more than maybe one or two this year....

Anybody else catching pomps?

Also checked the TWs site and Red Drum Tackle, but it seems like a bust for the pomps this year.

Caught a handful of small ones late in July but they were too small to keep. BBNWR on a clear water afternoon, following week saw no pompanos not even the small ones

Well, I'm glad it's not just me then.

Took six specks and a puppy drum at Little Creek Base last night on the end of the falling tide. All releases.

I fish little creek on a daily basis. Ive caught tons of specs in the last 3 weeks. Every other day ive been catching some puppydrum. They tend to come and go along with the striper. The police have cracked down on fishing and have now found all the little hiding spots and have started walking the piers to catch people
