Tarpon Fishing From The Beach during the Fall Mullet Migration
The fall Mullet Migration is the best time to catch Tarpon from the beach. As the bait travels down the coastline they are chased and corralled close to the shore and often trapped in corners of inlets and jetty. Depending on your beach you can expect the beach to get crowded with other happy baiters trying to catch a Snook or a Tarpon or even doing extreme beach shark fishing. Thats why it is a good idea to fish with a friend. You will often have to wade out in waist deep surf, and with sharks and barracudas mixed in the surf its better to have another person with you. Almost all of the Florida shark attacks happen during the Mullet Run, from Sebastian to the Keys. Once the shark attack reports start popping up regularly in the news, you can bet the bait is in that area. Also its alot easier to land a Tarpon or Shark with an extra set of hands, the last thing you want to do is throw your combo onto the sand to free up your hands.
