The Mullet Run is Here!

Posted October 10, 2018

The mullet run has arrived along the Treasure Coast however the stiff easterly winds and the buildup of seaweed have kept many anglers from enjoying the beaches and near shore fisheries. We are seeing sizeable schools of Mullet along the Intracoastal Waterway, just not the volume that we’ve seen in years past; but that is not slowing the fishing down. The Snook, Trout and Jack Crevalle bite has been phenomenal over the past few weeks with recurring Tarpon hook-ups entertaining anglers with their fascinating aerobatics. You can find the Redfish and Trout in the deeper holes along the flats. Use live shrimp under a popping cork, pilchards, finger mullet or your choice of topwater during the early morning hours. Snook will be holding up along the bridges, Ft Pierce Inlet and mangrove shorelines. On the bridges and inlet, fish a First Light Jig, Pilchard or finger Mullet on the bottom on the outgoing tide. For Snook along the mangrove shorelines use live bait, 4”-6” jig of your choice or fly in a mullet, shrimp or small baitfish pattern. More and more bait is continuing to show up each day so fishing should keep getting better.
