Pompano and Flounder can be caught from the beaches. From Venice to Sanibel Island, 5th street on Boca is a good place to look for Flounder and 15th st. has been good on Pompano. But really any beach front is a good place to try.
these are Banana Jig known as Crazy or Silly which started its life as a Walleye jig back in the 1970’s and became a huge salt water lure,
In salty water for flounder or Pompano. To try for both species with a single lure you should vary your Casting style. One cast should be to keep the lure up in the water with a side ways jigging motion, This works best on Pompano moderate to fast retrieve.
For the Flounder the lure should bounce off the bottom lifting the rod tip to make the lure move in an up & down motion. Slow to moderate retrieve.
Banana Jigs may be used with or with out the teasers, I prefer the ones with the feather teaser on it like the picture on the left. But I have some customers who swear by the plain jig They say it has a better hook up ratio. You decide the are not expensive So getting both will not break the bank. At just over $2.
Good luck and have a little fun, keep in mind fish is healthy food, but filling a freezer is just not right,
Catch ya again later 🙂
