Early mullet run report August 28, 2011

For all you mullet run junkies our time has arrived a little early this year. I have been seeing scattered mullet schools coming by Singer Island for the past two weeks. Late yesterday there were loads off mullet outside of the surf (not my favorite while wave riding) and this AM they were tight to the beach after the swell evaporated overnight. The bite died as soon as the sun cleared the horizon but in the short window we had my son and I caught several jacks (largest about 15 lbs), ladyfish, a bluefish and a large spanish mackerel. We saw numerous tarpon but had no luck with them. I did not see any snook. The water is still very sandy. These were good size pods of mullet and other assorted bait pushing south.
