Cobia are another species that may be found during the mullet run this month.

It’s the best month of the year for fishing in and around the port. The Fall mullet run is in full swing, and the predators are feeding with a vengeance. Snook, bluefish, ladyfish, Spanish mackerel, flounder, tarpon, redfish, and more are all possible along the beaches and around the jetties this month. Live fingerling mullet are obviously one of the best things to use for these predators. Rig these on a sliding sinker or knocker rig, or just put them on a simple ½ ounce HookUp jig head. Rapala lures like the new Twichin’ Mullet, or the always productive X-Rap (size 10 or 12) are virtually fool proof when fishing at this time of the year. I prefer the mullet, or green back finishes when targeting all of these species. Fish the beaches and jetties where mullet are congregating. If you don’t see any baitfish in the water keep moving until you do. You want to fish in the pods of mullet because the predators won’t be far away.
