Pompano On The Fly


Had a great day with Cameron and Adam, two Lake Okeechobee bass anglers on their first saltwater fly fishing trip.  We spent most of our time sight casting in Pine Island Sound and scored with a couple of big pompano right at high tide.   These fish are usually caught over the deeper grass but today we found them cruising in a foot of water on some very bright sand bars.  The guys also landed their first keeper trout and redfish but the snook were nowhere to be found (of course) so that denied us the Slam.  Some high clouds and leftover winds from last weekend's cold front didn't help much but this was still an excellent day on the fly.  Looking forward to having these guys back for tarpon season next year.
