A First

I trolled for king mackerel this weekend. I caught ribbonfish, cobia, and a 5-pound Spanish mackerel. There are 37 or so citation-eligible species in the Virginia Saltwater Fishing Tournament. All have been registered on the Healthy Grins…except for pompano. As I have often been more of a boat driver than fish catcher, there are a handful of Virginia citation species that I have not personally gotten. Spanish mackerel was one of those, until now. There are now just a few left. I guess I will need to learn how to catch pompano. VMRC’s citation program is a wealth of knowledge, collecting data since 1958. I know that September is the prime month and that shrimp is the best bait to catch a citation pompano in Virginia.
