I have to work the night shift tonight - I checked the wave, wind, tide condition on Wed. night, and it looked Soooo good for surf fishing on Thursday. I and my wife dropped off our boys at school, had a short breakfast and here we go. This is may be 3rd trip I and my wife fish at the CCAFS LC34 beach together. We arrived at dead low tide around 10:30 AM, by 11:45 AM we got 10 pomps and some bull whiting (I meant 17 -19 inches). They completely shut down after we got our 10th. We stayed until 12:30PM, but nothing else happened.

I wish I have my camera with me this morning - I swear to god that we saw hundred, hundred if not thousand, thousand of pomps moving south, may be 10 feet from where we stand, they were VERY close that I could not "cast" my 12 foot rod. They were flashing, jumping every time the wave came. If I have a cast net, I have no doubt one cast will limited out on pomps.

Here is pictures of my wife and pomps.

Eman,

Please don't pull me off this site just because I post fishing report with fish pictures!!! . Don't say out loud if you don't like my wife pictures.

Got off work at 9:00AM today, after a 12-hour shift, I decided to fish anyway, but I won't post the report until it is OK with everybody.


new2saltwater,

If your badge can get thru PAFB gate, you should be able to get thru CCAFS. Launch complex 34 is the honey hole, just ask security guard, he will give you the map. Open for fishing sunrise to sunset.

Very simple tackle and rig - 12 feet spinning set up with double drop rig, 4oz sinker, frozen shucked clamp from walmart. That is it! - go get them.

Eman,

Anytime MOD! (In my language, it means: Mission Operation Director).

Seriously, I would take you to fish my pomps, snook, and mangrove snapper's honey holes if you ever have a chance to come down here.
