Just a heads up for anyone lucky enough to find themselves along the gulf coast and a little bit of free time. Right now the bite is HOT and equipment needed is simple. Pompano and whiting are red hot, with spanish, reds, big uglies, sheephead, and a host of others being caught. A simple pompano rig ( 2 drop loops, a pyramid weight, 2 #2 circle hooks, a piece shrimp, sand flea, ghost shrimp, fishbites or fishgum) and your ready to hook 'em!

Wormy all year long, or just towards the end of the summer like speckled trout down there can get?
