JT, Gavin & Colin got a very early start today with me to try catch some Tarpon & Snook. It’s about time for the Mullet Run to be in full swing however it seems to be more like a quarter swing. There wasn’t much action in the inlet so we moved to a nearby bridge. Snook were busting mullet pretty regularly on the bridge however it was tough to get them to eat our mullet. We ended up with one decent size Snook for our hard work. When the sun got up we went into the ocean looking for some Tarpon action. Again the Tarpon action was slow however the Shark action was hot. I think about 9 Spinner / Blacktip sharks were hooked with 3 landed and released. Gavin had the bad luck today, he hooked a bunch of sharks, all but one broke off for one reason or another, nothing he was doing wrong, they just didn’t want to play nice. After JT and the boys were worn out on the sharks we made a long run looking for mullet schools off the beach. We didn’t see any big mullet schools, we did however run across some Bonitos close to the beach resulting in two hooked and one landed. Colin’s Bonito was on steroids and just would not come to the boat, unfortunately the hooked pulled before we got to see the fish, I think it would have looked just like Arnold Schwarzenegger. Colin got the unusual catch of the day award by catching a big Ribbon Fish (creepy looking things they are). All in all a good day on the water, nice weather for a change and some decent fish caught. Hopefully they big push of mullet will be here soon and things will really get going.
