Huge Mullet in Surf

Fishermen are landing huge mullet, 17 to 20 inches long in the surf with sand fleas (mole crabs). You have to find the deep holes and fish the high tide to low. Peel the sides of the sand fleas for the best results, but keep in mind that they don't stay on the hook long if peeled, so check bait often. Early morning fishermen are still landing blues and a few spanish. Mullet along with a mix of blues, hog fish, small croakers, and a few small black drum are showing up at night.

Fish the deep holes in the surf early morning with sand fleas for best results.

  2. Sorry for the delay in answering your post. July may be one of the slowest months for fishing, except maybe august. The heat drives a lot of fish to deeper water. Your best bet will be to fish early morning, just after daylight or late evening, or at night on the piers or your favorite fishing hole. Use the daylight hours to scout out the beaches and find a nice slough or hole to fish in. You might try throwing a got-cha plug or a diamond jig early morning on the piers. Also try jigging the diamond for pier dwelling spanish mackeral. In the surf, use sand fleas (mole crabs) for mullet or pompano. Good Luck, Maybe I'll see ya on the beach!
