The back bay water was like glass today , I could easily see the pods of mullet, as they moved around the sound without being attacked. Great to see them show up, but I didn’t see any numbers of fish pushing them today. The water clarity has improved to a 7. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the clearest. I like to see it hold at an 8 or above for a week to really kick things into action. The water temperature was 70 degrees.
