Post storm mullet run reports?

I went down to the beach north of the Juno pier this AM. I did not see any mullet. Any reports.

    Saw plenty the other night in downtown Stuart, and even more on the east side of the ICW in Jensen yesterday morning.

    How about Jupiter? Haven't been out due to marina being closed but if I can get out this weekend, I'll be searching. Thanks for any input.

    I walked the beach from Carlin Park to Jupiter Inlet the last two mornings at dawn. Saw a few mullet . I caught one 24 inch snook this morning from the beach 100 yards south of the jetty. Very slow. I got a report of a big school of mullet near Port Everglades this AM so I guess the first flurry of mullet snuck past me while I was playing with my hurricane shutters.

    They were thick after the storm. Seems like a false start though in stuart.

    Got out yesterday and they were decent numbers by the SLI. But far from the full force of the run.

    I was at Jupiter Inlet this morning at dawn. A few mullet but nothing going on. NE wind. There is a building swell. Coffee colored water. I checked Coral Cove, Hobe Sound Beach and Hobe Sound Wildlife Refuge. Nothing going on. The fish Gods want me to clean up my yard I guess.

    Fireman Bill, good seeing you today. It looks like the lower keys is opening tomorrow morning. May be there for a few days. Find the mullet for me while I'm gone.

    Good luck in the Keys. My son is catching striped bass today on a top water plug at school. Very unfair,

    Plenty of mullet in Jupiter around the inlet. Didn't take long to get a few dozen in the well. Tossed a few in the Inlet around some docks but no takers. Water still looks like coffee.

    I've seen a few small pods in the ICW in Highland Beach, but have been too busy dealing with post storm stuff to even think about throwing the net on them.

    Went out on the kayak by MacArthur/Munyon and they were all over the place. 3"-5"

    At Juno beach yesterday was a big school offshore with tarpon and spinner sharks on it but nothing within casting distance.

    Was at Jupiter Inlet on the south jetty Tuesday, no mullet but did see a guy pull in a pretty 24" redfish. Sawfish Bay had a large school of finger mullet yesterday and I saw a few hog legs floating in the debris. Peanut Island area holding tons of small white bait this morning.

    The Mullet run is in full swing as of 09/21/17 the earman river is loaded. The storm put a delay on them but they are thick now.

    Fished a little south of juno. There were small schools of finger mullet along with some bigger sized schools. Most of them staying past the break. A "less than fair" amount of predators around. Lots and lots and lots of weeds. Water is coffee with two half and halfs

    Mullet in Boca!

    I saw a bunch of finger mullet in Jupiter Inlet the past few days. A few guys said they were catching some nice redfish as well. The water is nasty brown but full of life.

    Went out last night, from about 5PM to midnight. Fished in Lake Worth lagoon from North bridge to Peanut Island. Mullet everywhere. Finger mullet by docks along Palm Beach with bigger mullet out away from docks. There's fish feeding on them. We got a tarpon, lost another, caught a big snook on a flairhawk by the bridge, but caught mostly ladyfish. The tide was incoming, maybe we would have caught more snook if we stuck around for the outgoing. Anyway, we had fun, had lots of action. It's going on, get out there.

    Near Peanut Island, my first throw of the net got me about 10 horse mullet. After that, I didn't get anything. I saw a few pods jump, but by the time I got to them, I didn't see anything in the water. The water was pretty darn murky.

    We had to do a little searching for them around hiģh tide yesterday, but loaded up by Peanut.

    Inconsistent in Lake Worth Inlet area. Heavy one day, disappear the next. I hope there is a major push coming. If not it will be worst run in last three fall seasons.
