    Fished the Brazos River in North Central Texas over the weekend. When we cat for bait, we dragged in a lot of freshwater mullet, mostly in the 2-3 inch size. Tried them for bait for channels, but all we caught on them were gar. I must have had hook ups with 20 to 30 gar and actually brought in 10, mostly in the 2-4 lb range. But, nary a catfish took the mullet. On the other hand, we caught about 10 nice channels on hellgramites and shad, all the cats were in the three to four lb range. Has anyone here had any luck with channels and freshwater mullet, either cut or whole?

    Never heard of them in freshwater... I used them for drum in the bays in NC with good results though.
