Where are the mullet?

Anyone been seeing migrating schools? It’s been a while since I’ve lived here but I feel like they’re usually pushing through pretty strong by this time. I ran the beach this afternoon without seeing so much as a boil or a diving pelican anywhere.

    Update. Went back out to the beach for the evening and all the mullet were in tight to the shore. Cast netted a few but the weeds were way too thick to fish and there wasn’t anything boiling on them

    Lots of mullet this evening off Jupiter. Sharks were on them and looked like Tarpon but didn’t get a great look. Fish flying through the air everywhere.

    Last Saturday (i know way too late)  Big schools moving off Hobe Sound beach with tarpon and jacks tearing into them.  Had to postpone my paddle out on the surfboard.

    Finger mullet and Hoglegs were around Lake Park ramp Wed & Fri last week. Good numbers of both

    Fished on 9/21 Left out of Jupiter inlet and headed north. Found some schools of mullet around hobe sound but they spread out quickly. Went south again and then found a giant school 1 NM north of blowing rocks in Jupiter. Lots of tarpon on the school. A couple of them were over 100lbs and a few that were 50-60lbs. We hooked up on one but he spit it pretty quick.

    Gonna miss the entire run, we were planning on coming down 10/6 and catching an FAU game that afternoon, and fishing that morning.  Stupid homecoming at my son's high school and he's going this year.

    Hog leg equals large mullet I believe

    Looked for them all over Jupiter yesterday and finally found them up in the North Fork around 9pm on the last of the incoming tide. They were hard to find...

    They are here, scattered throughout the Loxhatchee, in the ICW north, and some small schools on the beach.  Lots of glass minnow pods too.  What I saw early in the week led me to believe its cranking up but the best is yet to come...
