The Mullet Run is finally getting going with a lot of bait in the lagoon and the beaches getting some action as well. Inshore bite has been good with a lot of trout as well as slot redfish and some snook. Artificial baits have been working well. Storm 360 Coastal jerk baits in mullet and red glitter have been the best colors for us. Jacks are grey hounding the mullet in the lagoon from Palm Bay to Sebastian. If you are looking for some great action, seep your eye out for the whitewater and mullet trying to get away from the jacks. It looks like you are on a bombing range and its a heck of a lot of fun with topwater and poppers providing the best action. Bull sharks are following the jacks and trying to eat them once they are hooked.

The Inlet bite is good with a lot of redfish and a decent number of snook but they aren’t as plentiful as the reds. Most Redfish are over slot fish with a few slot fish mixed in. Jacks are thick on both tides as well and will eat any bait that gets in front of them. You may have to week through the jacks to get to the Reds and Snook. Live pigfish are producing well as are pinfish and mullet.

Mullet just showed up on the beach in numbers and there have been tarpon jacks and sharks mixed in. Depending on the size of the mullet and how big the school is determines the predators that you will find mixed in. Tight to the beach and smaller mullet are holding jacks snook and bluefish and the bigger schools with larger mullet have tarpon sharks and big jacks. Its a lot of fun if you can find them and get the predators to eat.
