This is the second time that I just see mullet shoal just hanging on the surf, stand still, you can get very close to them. Birds don't even bother with them or any other predator?

whats going on in there, is it a sign of what?

I've never seen one stand still before. Although sometimes slowly, they're usually cruising back and forth.

You'd be scared frozen if you had to hang out in that water day in and day out! Maybe instead of swimming and causing a scene they are keeping a low profile. I have seen rafts like that and cast all around and not even get a hit. People complain oh there's no bait then there is too much bait? I never understood it. You can tell when they are nervous but those rafts like you describe seem like they are resting to me.

They probably had a rough night and morning. When I see the huge rafts it's usually during slack tide or when the sun is high and nothing going on.

Throw a slow sinking twitch bait into the hoard and snag a few. They're just as fun to catch as anything else and you can save them for cut bait later!

I have fished the Bolivar, High Island and Mcfadden surf for 35 years. When mullet get stacked up like that I have found a floating Rippling Redfin is deadly. Chrome with a black back and just let it sit....twitch it every 10 seconds. Slow and steady.

They get like that mid summer when they are feeding on plankton and or nutrients floating on top of the water. When it gets hot and calm you can see them in the surf and the bays. It looks like they are kissing the top of the water as they feed.
