Can you say On Fire? (No pun intended) but wow. The last few weeks have been great. Bait has been around and not that hard to catch. If you can’t find the pogies you can for sure catch the mullet. We have done a few trips offshore and a few trips inshore. Kings and mahi have been eating live bait and dead bait. If you cant find your pogies grab a box of cigar minnows and tip it with a skirt. After the winds kicked up we had to stay inshore and give that a whirl. And honestly, Tarpon, reds, Spanish, bones and cobia close to the beach have been incredible! Find the bait pods and your good to go. Some days there up near the bight (left out of cape) and other days down towards Patrick. Bring plenty of leader material and hooks. 60# flouro and 8/0 circles. Good Luck!

The mullet are not in anywhere near as great numbers as I thought last week. Sadly. The season’s first cold front came in over the weekend. On Monday Rodney Smith and I went fishing out of Port Canaveral. I had a jacket on, since it was about 60 degrees when I launched the boat. The wind was about 10, NE. Our first order of business was to run north along the beach, looking for the schools of mullet I knew would be there. They weren’t. Off the cape we looked for the menhaden schools that had been there. They were gone. Rodney started off fly fishing, using a small Clouser Minnow. He took a fish on each of his first seven casts. When that slowed we tossed jigs up into the surf line, steadily catching ladyfish, bluefish, small jacks, and a few Spanish mackerel. After a while the smaller sized fish ceased being entertaining, so we went looking for bigger fare. Off Cocoa Beach there were some menhaden schools. They were thick, and I wanted to net some. It was too deep. My net doesn’t sink fast, and in deep water the pogies just swim out from under it when they see it coming. We each put a finger mullet on and tossed them by the menhaden. It didn’t take long for my line to come tight. A Monster tarpon tailwalked past the boat, shaking its head, rattling its gills. The 80 pound leader, apparently damaged by a bluefish, broke. We hooked several 50-100 pound class sharks, but had no more tarpon bites. We checked for mullet along the beach again before we went in, but they were still not along the beach. Waaagh!
