Some people like to eat them; while a few use them for crowd attraction. But, for some other people, it’s the excitement of the pursuit to catch a big one and then allowing it go to fight another day.

Mullet: A Top Fish You’ve Certainly Not Caught


The mullet is one of the best and a fun fish to hunt for, and there are various distinctive manners to approach it. There is a substantial number of mullet species, which can be found all over the world in warm seaside waters, and sometimes in freshwater.

They are especially found in huge numbers in Florida waters. They like to feed on detritus, algae, and other minute marine invertebrate creatures. It is quite difficult for an inexperienced fisherman to catch using line and a hook as they do not like to go after simple bait. Or else, regularly mullets are caught using a haul seines and thrown nets.

How To Catch The Mullet


Bait is an easy method to catch a Mullet. In this process, you can utilise either crisp bread from the nearby pastry shop and simply “squash” onto the hook or you can make your own “dough “. This batter comprises of flour and water blended into a very firm paste.


Using the cotton wool, the formed mixture can be placed onto the hook. This method is used by a few fisher men and the few times they prefer to utilise a little measure of salt in their blend. Although there is no scientific reason to it, it is no harm in doing the task. It’s great to blend the mixture the prior night and place it in the refrigerator to solidify the dough.

Handline Or Rod And Reel

This is another method to catch a Mullet. To do this, you need is a light spinning outfit or little handline with around 4-5lb line and a little hook (No 11-12) with a little float about 6 – 10 cm away from the hook. Berley, being a vital element is necessary for getting Mullet in a line.


You should barley with little pieces of bread to get the Mullet “In the spirit”. Though it is not necessary to cover up the entire area, you can simply begin off with about six pieces. At that point, if you see mullet feeding on top water or simply under it, toss up your handline using a little bit of either dough or bread into the feeding fish and after that wait for a few minutes for the fish to take it and afterwards set the hook.


On the next trip, try catching a Mullet using the trap method. One can buy these anyplace and can be utilised by various fishers to get a little mullet to draw. Just set these perfect cylinders inside 1-2 feet of water anyplace along the edges of the river mouth.


You may need to have little persistence and sit tight for 10 – 15 minute. Diligence is the key here, as these can be extremely effective, yet you should not disturb the water as Mullet are a drowsy fish and can be outstandingly fussy on occasion.

Get A Cast Net

As mullets have a tendency to assemble in huge numbers and stay near the water surface, it is likely most normal for individuals to fish them using a cast net. While this is a simpler and more proficient technique than utilising line and a hook, mullets are known to have incredible eyesight and can move away immediately when they see a net being thrown.


While getting a net, check fishing rules in that area. In Florida, for instance, it is not allowed to utilise a net for the freshwater bait fishing, which is larger than the usual 1-inch extended mesh.

There you go, boy! Catching a Mullet is basic and consists of a considerable measure of fun times for the entire family. So go on, take children, and move down to your closest water lake and catch a couple.
