10/16/2022 October Mullet Run in effect!

Well we’ve had some great fishing around the ‘fall bait run’ in the last couple weeks here in the Florida Keys.  Typically October we start to get a lot of bait pushing down the coast as it cools down up north.  Lots of predators follow these baitfish including the ever-elusive tarpon!  We’ve had some days where hundreds of tarpon can be seen crashing these huge schools of baitfish and have lead to some epic fishing opportunities!  Unfortunately it’s never a guaranteed thing – and this week I’ve seen it about as good as it gets, and a day or two later seemingly all the fish dissappeared!  Not that we didn’t catch anything but again it’s fishing so you never know unless you go.  But those baitfish and tarpon are still around things as always just shift around with the weather and some days you just don’t have the time or luck to stumble into them.  Anyways that opportunity is there right now and if it doesn’t happen we’ve had some good snook fishing that’s been fairly consistent as well.  The patch reef fishing on the ocean side is heating up too as we get into Fall so bottom fishing on calmer days is always a fun half day option and Capt. Brandon loves to do that.  Check out a couple of our recent tarpon catches here and give me a shout if you want to go fishing!
