The Fall Mullet Run Is Starting!

August 26, 2016

My favorite time of the year is just getting started, The Mullet Run!  For those not familiar, every fall we get a massive migration of mullet (baitfish) that skirt our beaches as they head south.

They school up in thick pods to elude attacks using safety in numbers.  On their backs are some of the biggest tarpon you can catch along with trophy snook, blacktip sharks, spinner sharks, ladyfish, jacks, barracuda and much more.  These are just the species that follow them along the beaches.

Here at Lady Pamela, we offer mullet run speciality charters that are mainly in the evenings, however our morning trips are very good as well.  You find the mullet pods and you usually find the fish.  We run the beaches as well as the intercoastal looking of the pods.  Most of the time we find them right here in our inlet or around our bridges with fish on them.

Some call it the greatest show on the earth and my clients that are here in the fall, absolutely love the adventure even on those nights where we can’t get a hook to stick.  The explosion from a tarpon cart wheeling through the baits is just as much as fun seeing as catching.

Come experience National Geographic fishing as mullet explode all around our boat while they seek safety from giant tarpon, sharks and more.  Our mullet run fishing trips are starting to book now and the prime time starts the beginning of September and runs through October.  In November we start to switch it up, however there are a ton of mullet still around and we use them for bait, in the inlets and off the beaches.

 

TESTIMONIALS

Awesome Tarpon Trip!

We booked Captain David to take us fishing inshore since my wife gets really seasick. He mentioned that the tide was really good on a particular date so we took it. My son caught his first tarpon about 50lbs along with a barracuda and we released a snook. The inshore waters of Fort Lauderdale are very scenic and Captain David showed us some amazing celebrities homes including Wayne Huizenga where we caught a tarpon right behind his house.  Very cool stuff.  David took measurements of the tarpon and my son now how it hanging in his room. The silver king!
