The Treasure Coast Mullet Run: Amazing Migration Caught On Video
As most South Florida anglers know, fall is one of the best times of the year for fishing; especially if you're looking to catch mullet.
During the fall season the mullet migrates south along the Atlantic coast before heading offshore to spawn, which attracts a variety of predators like sharks, Spanish mackerel and bluefish. From above, the mullet run is a fascinating look at nature.
Jason Griffeth and the team behind the Hydrophilik YouTube channel captured footage from up in the clouds of this year's mullet run along the Treasure Coast.
"We have been filming the mullet over the past few weeks in order to capture some footage for our Hydrophilik YouTube channel, where we focus on videos in, on or near the water," says Griffeth. "Some of the feeding scenes with blacktip sharks and huge tarpon look like fireworks exploding. It was absolutely amazing to see sharks and tarpoon (normally enemies) swimming right next to each other in the same school of mullet."
