Very small, light colored jigs work
good here, and so do white D.
Sand fleas and tipped jigs work
well for the pompano but are also good for redfish, Spanish mackerel and flounder.
A wide range of location-specific jig types have been developed for pompano fishing: banana jigs, Looney jigs and Doc's Goofy Jigs are some commonly found jigheads used in Florida pier waters, but the old round-head jigs work
just fine, too.
Gold spoons are a go-to lure, but big honkin' jigs work
extremely well because you can cast them a mile.
Live bait and jigs work
fine but they are nowhere near as exciting as casting a topwater lure early in the morning.
Minnow/jig combos are popular, but "naked" Missouri minnows on small gold hooks or 1/32-ounce plain jigs work
Dark jigs work
best because they provide the most contrast with the sand of the bed.
Bucktail jigs work
well, as do eel-like soft baits such as the Berkley Power Eel.
A dead mullet on the bottom, or a live one on top, or even big jigs work
in the passing schools.
Gold spoons, shallow-diving plugs and jigs work
well on both species.
