Late Season Mullet

Post by MulletFly » Sun Oct 06, 2013 8:52 pm

The warm settled weather persists and the shoals with it, compensation perhaps for the tardy start to the season.
Equinoxial storms are normally the trigger for the shoals to depart the flats but this year they have passed the south coast by. Fish continue to feed in earnest when the want takes them. The Ghost buster remains prominent on their menu.
A cloud on the horizon however. Air temperatures are set to plummet later in the week and finally the waters will cool, signaling the departure of the masses. Small groups of larger than average mullet then take center stage on the flats with October often providing the heaviest fish of the season. The developing bow wave created by a specimen mullet as it locks on to your fly in twelve inches of water is about as good as it gets in this country.
