Surf: Better catches of pompano are coming south of Sebatian Inlet, where cut clams and live sandfleas are working best. Beaches north and south of Sebastian Inlet, often as far north as Floridana Beach, are producing good catches of bluefish and Spanish

mackerel on both cut baits and spoons.

Sebastian Inlet: Bluefish and Spanish mackerel are dominating the inlet right now and anglers are getting catches on spoons, jigs and other mullet or glass minnow imitations

Port Canaveral: Occasional flounder are hitting live baits along sandy drop-offs and near pilings and seawalls.

Indian, Banana rivers: Redfish are holding along deeper edges of flats until the sun warms the water, when they move up into shallower water. Many of the reds, especially those in the Banana River, are over-sized and must be released.

Tides High Low High Low* Cape Canaveral Area
Port Canaveral 9:08 am 3:18 pm 9:11 pm 3:30 am

I'm from the Jacksonville area and was wondering if the mullet run and Tarpon are still in your area or have moved south. TIA :confused:

BentHook,

Wasn't sure if you meant Kuzlow or me.

The mullet in S.W. FLA are thick. Alot of people on the dock were snagging 1/2 dozen or so to smoke. The Tarpon are generally being taken by boat...haven't heard of any off the pier lately. Recent low tides and weather have slowed things.
I wish I could give you better report on Tarpon, but I can verify heavy mullet concentration!!!

Happy Holiday's and Tight lines,

Jighead
