Hello TOF Friends,

 

It's been a while since I posted a report, have been very busy filling Nekid Ball Jigz orders, but today was one of those special trips that reminded me of why I love Florida Spring Fishing.

 

Invited our neighbor Ohio Jack to join NBJ Pro-Staffer Bryan Holton for some inshore fun. Jack had never fished NBJ and was mostly a freshwater angler. We hit the crab traps at dead low tide, as soon as the incoming began the action was amazing. Nice sized Speckled Trout joined some Bigger Mack's to begin the day along with tons of ladyfish and about a dozen different species.

 

After we had enough of the tasty speedsters to fill the smoker, we decided to try some of the Island passes of St Joe Sound for some Pompano. Didn't know if they would be there, but sure enough within a few minutes of getting into the drift along the beach...Bang - Pomp On!

 

These weren't little Golden Nuggets, but full bodied bruisers who gave all three of us a work out. Hit after hit, the Pompano kept coming over the rail, hitting on all three colors - Hot Pink Flash, Yellow Flash & Green Flash.

 

Every time I looked over Jack had a Big Smile on his face, as he scored time and time again. Jack will be heading back to Ohio next week for the summer, but as of today he was our newest NBJ All Star.

 

Have a safe trip home Jack and we will see you in the fall.

 

Cheers TK

Happy to hear that so many species are hitting again. It's been a bit slow...perhaps NBJ and Spring fishing are "game on" again. Will head out with my NBJ's tomorrow morning to try for some of the same. Fun report, great pics.

Nice Pomps and Macks, look like you had a great day, Lloyd ( AT LAST ) and I wnt out today in the same area without much luck. fish where biting just not the big ones, Did you fish for the Pomps on the gulf side beaches or by the pass? We did get some Pomps but we actually fished in the pass.

You'll probably be interested to know that we each landed a keeper Pompano using NBJ's. I was using a Silver and I gave Brad a hot pink...first time he's used one.
