Pompano Still Roaming Mississippi's Barrier Islands

Capt. Robert L. Brodie
July 19, 2009
Mississippi Sound - Saltwater Fishing Report

Ran a late trip yesterday afternoon from 1 pm to 4 pm. My comeback clients were Bob Blanton and Wayne Everett from Florida.

The light north winds made for an excellent afternoon to be on the water, and the guys wanted to catch a few Florida pompano.

With that thought in mind it was back to the gin clear shallows of the barrier islands, a ten mile run off Mississippi's mainland.

Once there, well, no fish were to be found in the regular "honey holes", so it was off to find new hunting grounds.

With the tide low on the bars and still falling I decided to run to the east, and off some shallow flats we found fish jumping in our wake.

The waters were loaded with ladyfish, small sharks, and hardtails, but the men fished through it and managed to box 5 beautiful and tasty pompano.

Got back to the Biloxi Small Craft Harbor early, and the gentlemen had a mess of fine pompano to bake up.

And that's the end of that story.

So far I am booked Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, but do have Wednesday afternoon, Friday, and Sunday open so far.

By the way, the white trout are biting great too, just in case anyone out there wants to load up on some delicious frying fish.
