Light tackle anglers in east central Florida have a fantastic opportunity to catch a variety of saltwater species during the fall months along the beaches of Cape Canaveral, Cocoa, Satellite, Melbourne, and Sebastian each year. Falling air and water temperatures that occur during the September through December time frame create a massive migration of silver and black mullet along this stretch of coast line.
Just mentioning the term “fall mullet run” sends a shiver of excitement within the fishing communities of Florida’s coastal regions! There is no surprise as to why; all gamefish and rough fish like sharks that rely on mullet as a seasonal source of food flock to beaches to binge-feed on these creatures.
While big winds and surf have knocked us off the beach for a while, it's a great time to load up and take an inland excursion to score some pompano. Don’t dream the dream, just frigging do the jigging!

It’s a cold post-frontal January morning in east Central Florida. While launching my skiff in predawn darkness I can barely see the end my trailer as a heavy fog bank has settled in. Luckily, I know this part of the Saint Johns River like the back of my hand, so finding my intended fishing spot in zero visibility goes according to plan. Heavy fog of this nature is uncommon on the Saint John River basin, requiring a precise mixture of warm river water, cold winter air and dead calm conditions to occur.
Now, I love fishing as much as anybody, but fishing is great here no matter the temperature. That's why, when it's cool, it's another outdoor activity that tugs at my heart strings: cooking.
