    Decided to blow off work after lunch today and head to Grayton. Stopped by Yellowfin to pick up shrimp at 1:30. Caught first Pompano at 1:55. Realized I forgot my ice chest, I guess I didn't have very high expectations. Went back to the corner market and bought an ice chest. Back to the beach and fished till 3:45, caught 11 more pompano. Kept 7 for myself and friends and released the last 5. It was a typical postcard day at the beach in October. I think I will go again tomorrow.

    Didn't fish, but had a great day as well. Unfortunately for me it was in November and I have to leave!

    I was thinking it was 5, but did not want to go to the car to get my chart to see.

    Clearly, the "7" was a typo. Yes? :confused:

    I am aware of that. My wife reeled in 2 and when she left, a stranger walking by pulled in one when I had one on another line. None were close to 11".

    Do you site fish for your Pompano or do you just sit there and wait?

    As long as you're not alone when the Officer comes by. Maybe I'll come by and help you out.

    7 * $300.00 per offense = $2100.00 fine! ouch! and you just nuked a few more by removing some of the the breeding stock (why do you think there's a minimum size that can be taken in the first place?)

    a+ there, sherlock

    I found out a valuable tidbit of knowledge during my last visit. I am known for trying to heave my bait out as far as possible and just about every time, I sling my bait off and it goes flying down the beach on to someone's tent. :funn:

    I went and picked up a pound of fresh shrimp from the grocery and those suckers will stay on the hook because they haven't been frozen. And they don't leave you with stink fingers either. That's what I'll be doing next time!

    As posted earlier, my wife caught 2 of the fish. We could have legally kept 12 but didn't need that many. In fact, we wouldn't have kept the 7th if it had not been dying from the hook. I fully understand the game and fish laws and probably respect them more than some dumbazz from mizippi, wherever that is. All of the fish were considerably over the minimum, not under. Now I am upset that I spent valuable time responding such an obnoxious idiot.

    Best regards
    Sherlock
