Mullet Run Snook Report

The mullet are here!!!!! Some of the best fishing of the year can be had during the fall mullet run where million and millions of bait fish migrate their way back south and offshore to spawn. This type of bait run brings out all the predators to gorge themselves into food coma. The mullet will make their way down the ICW and beach which gives anyone an opportunity to catch fish whether by boat or land.

Common species found mixed with the mullet are redfish, trout, snook, tarpon, flounder, jacks and sharks. The best bait to fish with is obviously mullet but artificial fisherman can use any lure that mimics a mullet. Some of my favorite type of fishing is using a topwater plug during low light conditions.

Where I fish is chosen for the species I am after. If snook fishing I concentrate around the residential canals targeting seawalls, docks and rip rap. Redifsh are found on the flats, docks and especially at the inlets and beaches. Tarpon are loaded up on the area inlets especially if the big mullet are around if not look off the beach.

 

Rigs for fishing live mullet depends on structure and water depth. Some of my favorite setups are live lining a mullet with a hook in its back and a fish finder rig. I use a free lined mullet when targeting tarpon on open water or pitching to shallow docks. Fish finder rigs I use when fishing deep water structure for flounder and redfish.
