mullet run

We talked about it in last week’s fishing report and right on schedule, the mullet run has started along the Space Coast beaches. Anglers up and down from Playalinda Beach to Melbourne Beach are cashing in on these little nuggets of Silver that are swimming south. Captain Justin has been catching shark, tarpon, king mackerel, bluefish, jacks, snook and a variety of other fish as they feed on these bait pods.

Two of the best things that you can use right now are a live mullet on a jig head or an artificial that imitates one of these bait fish. We prefer Rapala X-rap subwalk and if the ocean is calm enough, skitter walk plugs, especially during early morning or late afternoon sessions.

We have been fairly booked up with charters during this first part of September, but we do still have some openings if anyone would like to try this type of fishing with us. Just call Captain Justin or myself at 321-636-3728 and we will get you out to try and catch your next memory!
