Mullet run fishing report for October

The month started with a huge push of mullet that created some epic fishing along the beaches. I posted some of the drone footage on our Instagram account be sure to click the link below to take a look.

Later mid October we had a second push of finger size mullet.

The fishing at night around Miami  bridges and dock lights became epic on many levels.

Tarpon exploded around the Miami dock lights and underwater lights on the many mullet gathered for shelter.

In fact I have not seen so many mullet around and TARPON in the lights and bridges for several years!!

Our Angler’s were spoiled on each fishing charter with 10-15 Tarpon in each light feeding heavily. Sight fishing was very rewarding not to mention exciting.

I had several fly fishing Angler’s come out with me. That is a little bit of a rare event usually I will fish live bait and or artificial lures for Tarpon . However the month turned out to be mostly fly fishing. The Tarpon were the perfect size to handle with jumps, great hard pulling runs that ended up with great photos.

In total most nights we had about 20-50 shots jumped about 11 and landed 3 or 4 we even had some great snook fishing. These snook smashed the fly beating the Tarpon to the hook! It was almost like watching schooled up Mahi eat.

The month continued threat way until we had some heavy tropical storm rains that released some insane amounts of fresh water into the bay pushing the bait fish out and away and with that the next week shut down the bite. Moving into November we just went through tropical storm ETA so I’m sure with the flooding the bay but may not be so good However I’m sure the Everglades spillways May hold some great fresh water snook and Tarpon action.
