I just picked up some whole pompano from the fish market for the first time. I was blown away how amazing these fish taste and I personally think they tare some of the best table fare available. My biggest question and was looking for help in how they are commercially harvested? I know that ppl catch them in FL panhandle this time of year but was also wondering if anyone has had any luck targeting them in the Louisiana? What time of the year, tackle and where? Any info is good info because I need to know how to go and catch some these bad boys.
Seeing that my friend and I took the the day off work, our trip couldn't be a failure. The sun was shining and it was better than being in the office. Well we tried our luck at the wall and after two Hours, we only had five okay sized trout. We found a cut in the ICW and it was non stop redfish action. Ended tge sat with 10 trout, one drum and nine redfish. The cooler was so full, I miss counted. We must have hooked into 30 slot reds.
This past Saturday was a successful fishing and catching trip in Chalmette. We launched at Eddie's on Paris Road around 6:45am and we're greeted by all the other weekend warriors surrounding the wall on the east and west sides of the wall. We tried our luck in outside marshes but the wind was blowing at least ten miles an hour from the south east. We then moved in and tried our turn fishing on the bottom of the wall. First cast with an articular swim bait resulted in a speckled wonder. We fished the wall for the rest of the day and ended with 55 keepers. They were caught on Carolina rigged live shrimp and various colored matrix shad. The biggest trout was about 16.5' and they fried up well the following day. Great times fishing within 15 minutes of a metropolitan city.
Does anyone know the name and phone number of the new boat launch on Paris Road? It is the on left right after the green bridge.
