Caught one of these fine fish down in Florida during spring break and boy! that was an exciting time. It fought hard and used it's broad sides to the utmost advantage. all in all a truly scrapie fighter.

get a red or pink shrimp lure and troll it around an open area real slow,3-4 mph, they'll hit but be prepared for a good fight.

Pompano love fiddler crabs, So the best thing to do is hook one (or 3 if you have pompanoo pro or tripple rigs) And then toss it into the flats and wait. You have a 80% chance of catching one if you wait.

My four year old son caught a pompano fish on the Hilton fishing pier in Newport News,VA. on the James River on 9/24/05. I had never seen this beauty before. He caught him using a good old nightcrawler in a few feet of water not too far out on the pier. The fish was about 1.5 pounds and was some good eating for what little of it there was.

I was fishing in Panama City and I caught a pompano right on the shore,using peices of squid.

Pompano fishing is often frustrating. All of the sources say that sand fleas are the best bait. I fished off a pier in Garden City, SC and used sand fleas. I watched the guy next to me pull out 5 pompano in a row. I asked him what bait he was using and he said he was using squid slices. Pompano are picky so I would advise you to try various baits instead of just one. Don't throw your bait out far either. Pompano feed in less than 4 feet of water where the waves break.
