Skipped outta work a couple hours early today and fished the west end of Panama City Bch. Landed a 15" Pompano (good by my standards) before I could get my 2nd rod in the surf. My first of the year. Had the drag set light on my 8# bottom rig so as not to lose it. I think I actually got some wood as I dragged him up on the beach Only had an hour to wet the hook, but surveyed a couple of others nearby. One had one and lost 2. I'd attach a pic, but I don't know how to do all that fancy stuff. Don't have a digital camera, either. Maybe in a few weeks, as things pick up around here, I'll try to scan in a photo and figure out how to post it. Meanwhile, it'd be nice to hear more from fishermen in the panhandle. All the posts seem to come from the east coast (enjoyable reading I might add).
