    Winter pompano on gas rigs?

    I have seen reference, but not much, saying that pompano tend to take refuge around rigs in the winter. Does anyone know much about this locally?

    There is a video on youtube of some commercial guys racking them up at a rig in Louisiana. They are in long sleeves so coolish weather anyway.

    I'd have to say the video was made in late winter/early spring (there were some spanish mackerel mixed in).
    And I have caught pompano around Alabama gas rigs in March & April while sheepshead fishing.
    But never heard of many (any?) in Jan/February except a few along the Baldwin beaches eastward.

    Looked like they were using a banana jig with dead shrimp...

    Of course the video is maybe edited, but that’s the fastest I’ve ever seen people pull Pompano back to back out the water.
