Jacksonville Beach - I got down to the beach about 7:30 AM which was right around high tide. I could see some scattered schools of mullet in the surf so walked out about knee deep and through my cast net over a school. With my bucket full of fresh live mullet. I hooked a single mullet on my rig which has a 3oz pyramid sinker. There was a slight current headed south but my bait was staying pretty much where I dropped it in the surf. I had a few small bites but not much other action. After about 30 minutes I had a good bite. I let the fish tug a couple of times to make sure he was hooked ,then reeledit in. It was a nice Spanich Mackerel about 22 inches long. I fished for another copuple of hours with no more bites. I had a blast and went home with one spanish mackerel for the day. Tight Lines!!
