Question by Wasif: Pompano beach fishing?
I live in fl and I am going to pompano beach for fishing and can any one give me tips? I will be using a pyramid sinker with one hook and squid as bait. I will also be using 2 rods, is this a good tactic?
Answer by Rudy
I’m not sure what kind of rods you have but here’s what would probably work best. Make up a 2′ leader of 30lb mono line. On one end put a 1/0 octopus hook and a barrel swivel on the other. Slide a 2oz pyramid weight on your main line, and then tie it onto the swivel. Use squid on one rod and something else, like a piece of frozen finger mullet or shrimp on the other. Change the size of the hook to match the bait. Pompano, whiting, grunts, sheephead, and a host of other fish will eat shrimp. Squid works but usually is ignored by the aforementioned species, except grunts.
