Finally got out there


Caught a ride, with a couple of friends, I met on the IOP pier. Boarded with Captain Chuck Griffin, and headed to a stretch of live bottom, in 110'. First line goes off on the down rigger on the way down. King on! Only got better from there. King's, Cobia, my personal best Barracuda, and African Pompano.

Heck of an experience...

I'm all in for laughs, and a good time. 23SF's post was neither.

Come on Mixed, don't be a fifi. I don't agree with EF's Rubenesque comment, I've never found another man's figure pleasing or attractive. 23's a straight up good dude, Living close to everything, but separated from it with some prime real-estate. I've never caught an African Pompano. Nice Job. Have a friend that says they have been catching these pretty often Off the North Carolina Coast. And good of you to post a long needed report and pic here. I miss all the old posters and fantastic pics from offshore. I really loved some of the diving stuff bringing up our huge "bugs". Anyone hear from Bug catcher?Originally posted by Fred67


LMAO...fifi? I haven't laughed this hard since you were going to make me "tap out". 23 can end this anytime he wants?

Not sure how squelching critical thinking, and dialogue, has any benefit? Prove your point, discuss, gracefully, and move on. I truly enjoy the dialogue, between all members who post here. Looks like were down to only a very few? SAD!!

RBF is a good egg, don't hate on a man that tells it like it is.

Shouldn't you be pulling weeds in that garden of yours? Last pics looked like you were slacking off.....too hot for you?Originally posted by poly ball-Upper Management


It wasn't too long ago (maybe a couple three years) RBF used to slam you pretty hard and talk about how much money and friends he had. Guess you two buried the hatchet since you both now support Biden and were butt hurt that Trump made it into office?


Sorry Mixed, couldn't help myself. Really though, 23 is a straight up good guy. I tend to over read stuff from time to time, you being sarcastic or serious?

Did you eat that Pompano? If so, are they the same as their smaller cousins?
When I ran headboats African pompano were an unusual occasional catch. But after eating a few I learned to target them. They bite best in low light Just before sunrise and sunset and overcast days. They suspend about 6 to 10 foot above the mass of bottom fish . They like smaller baits like small live b liners and will hit a properly rigged whole squid and love small jigs I would tie a weight to a line and drop it down in 90 to 150 ‘ and crank it up about 10 ‘ above the bottom and tie a rubber band to the line at the spool so I would know where to stop . Then tie on a Carolina rig with a bait 6 - 8 foot away from the swivel. I purchased my squid from shrimpers they were not big but easy to rig so they looked natural


Please read: do not respond to the political forums trouble makers that spew filth and sewage with their name calling and constant insults. It feeds their sickness and harms this site as EF and others have noted Please maintain the shun

African Pompano eats great! Amazing the amount of fillets you get off of these fish. Easy to clean, and fillet.

Sarcasm vs. serious?

read the whole post. I think you'll figure it out.

Looks like, once again, I'm the A-hole, for, simply, posting my adventure here?

For anyone interested. Both African Pompano's were caught on eight to ten inch, live Menhaden, on the bottom, in 110' feet. Single hook, eight oz. sinker, drop rig.

So much for Charleston Fishing.

It seems like Biden is running the show.

Enjoy.

??? Not at all. I really enjoyed your pic and post. I've already talked to a few friends and we all want to target an African Pompano. When the ARS crap started, I gave up on bottom fishing off shore. I Think that's what those making the laws wanted Recreational fishermen/women to do.

I'm kind of confused how all the fantastic posts of the past have just been removed? Guess management can't afford the storage? Oh well, I think we all know this site is doing the broke neck roaster thing. It's a shame. Really will miss this site and it's former glory.
