—This past week my clients and I have been able to get consistent catches of small permit and good sized pompano. These fish have been caught while moving through the edges of the passes, and have been eating shrimp-tipped jigs. Small white bucktail jigs, pompano jigs, crazy jigs, and of course a plain old shrimp will all work fine if you locate the fish.
—To locate the fish, try slowly moving along the edges of the passes with the sun at your back. Look for groups of small dark shadows swimming quickly along the sand bottom.
