Pompano are one of the most requested targets in our area inshore waters. Pompano are members of the Jack family which make them great fighters for there size. However it is the tasty filets they yield which make them a prime species on most anglers list! Pompano are close relatives of the Permit and often times will travel together in mixed schools. Pompano are a tough fish to target due to there constant movement. Occasionally a large school will move into an area and may hang around for a week or more offering some great actions to take advantage of. Pompano can be caught throughout the entire year but they are usually most abundant in the Spring or Fall. These fish typically range two to four pounds in size, the largest caught on my boat was a six pounder. Permit found on the offshore wrecks in the Spring and Summer can reach 35 pounds, but most found inshore are usually five to ten pounds.
