Currently seeing a lot of finger mullet (IHB area) making their way south and are hugging close to shore, easy pickens with a net. Yesterday morning the tarpon were blowing up the glass minnows. Pretty fun to watch, not sure how I didn't get a hit during all the madness.

Lots of big schools hugging the shore. Lots of jack, some tarpon and some smaller spinners.

The tarpon were scaring the crap out of me this week as they blasted the mullet, but I didn't see big numbers of bait. I hope it picks up.

So long and thanks for all the fish.

since we might be the only NE peeps vilano on the top or bottom of outgoing tide has been tarpon soup, may be tough in a yak but dayum.

yea right off the north jetty rocks and out to the first sandbar. then under the bridges can be good but have not patterned them there yet but seems like outgoing tide at night is pretty good at the usina and bridge of lions.

Historically, under the vilano bridge lights at night is almost a sure thing

Lots of Tarpon, sharks and what I'm guessing was snook in the shorey at the Base right now. Surfing was a bit spooky and that was during the day. Different size mullet too; fingers in the surf, mid size on the sand bars and foot long ones out a little deeper.

2nd wave on the way. This upcoming front should push a good pile of them south. Going on another snook bender next week.
