Everything Has a Beginning Florida East Coast Surf Fishing

The idea of Florida East Coast Surf Fishing began in the Spring of 2019. We fish. We also stop to interact with other anglers as opportunity arises. A pattern of sorts emerged between April and June. Fishermen began stating how it would be nice to fish with others but didn't know where to find anglers in the area. We started searching the Internet for key words we thought relevant and came up dismayed. The key words we used were of course, Florida East Coast Surf Fishing.

We created the Facebook group as a hub, Twitter because doesn't everyone have a Twitter, and random other social media sites to compliment. We then bought a Go Pro and started YouTube to show surf fishing for regular people as mainly we saw professionals or celebrities fishing, catching only monsters. That can breed insecurity and hesitation in those wishing to surf fish for the first time or who wish to reenter the saltwater scene and since we have been fishing together 30 years we thought we might be able to help that. See a need, fill a need. Stayin Salty and Casting a Wide Net! We decided to always show whatever we caught and encourage others to get out of the house with their families and go fishing. Connecting Anglers One Fish At a Time =)

Many anglers started asking us about our rigs. We have always made them ourselves and never had given them much thought. Around the same time we had gotten quite busy and found our tackle box very low on fishing supplies. We began traveling to Bait Shops and searching the Internet for saltwater fishing rigs, Pompano rigs to have a few extra for back-up. What we found was dismal at best and certainly not quality. If we found a rig close to acceptable, it would have faulty hooks, incorrect line, or improper floats and beads or none at all.

We decided to make our own to then sell for others, just exactly the ones we use ourselves. As we researched, we noticed many who didn't use what they sold and were confused by it. This was the motivation used to take a chunk of savings and invest in components on the large scale. We named the shorter rigs we use in Mosquito Lagoon and the Indian River, River Drops and the longer ones for surf fishing, Long Drops. The Double Drop Pompano Rigs are exactly the ones we have been using for years.

Since we ordered the components and began making the Pompano Rigs, we have found two other individuals who also make this product on Florida's East Coast. These are good quality rigs as well but different than the ones we make. We believe there is room in the market for selection. You can't have a stone too big for the ocean.

There is a good sized learning curve with shipping, mass construction, and small business. We are pushing through it all and will see where it comes out.
