If you want to catch POMPANO and JACK try using these rigs. The top rig is called SILLY WILLY. The color is white and yellow with a red and pink fly, and the jig weight is 3/8oz. The bottom jig is called CAPT. JOE rig. It also is white and yellow with pink fly and weight is 3/8oz. These are the colors that I had the best of luck with in this area. NOTE: The SILLY WILLY comes with a leader line, but the CAPT. JOE rig does not. I suggest you use 30lb test SEAGUAR 100% FLUOROCARBON leader line about 3 feet in length, and the knot to make for the rig would be the RAPALA knot. NOTE: If you want to learn more about making this knot, go to one of my blogs which is called SEAGUAR FLUOROCARBON LEADER LINE. When working your jig, the presentation is at a slow speed. I suggest you try an area for a half hour. If you're not catching anything, then move to another spot and try there. If you don't catch anything in a half hour or more, that means they are not there. NOTE: JACK also like biting GOT-CHA lures as well, but when using GOT-CHA lures the presentation is at a faster speed. One of the best GOT - CHA lures I use is the 1oz. silver body with a chartruse head, with red hooks. So try this too. SO GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY FISHING.
