    Years ago I lived next to a guy who came home every Sat pm with a ton of big mullet (This is NC florida)..he said he drove out to a bay on the Gulf , and used canned corn to do catch them, but that's all he'd say--I see tons of mullet in the rivers, Lake George here, wondering about tips to catch them with line and hook...?

    We catch them on the bottom using small red treble hooks and redworms/waxworms.

    I have only seen them netted. People don't think of them as a food fish but I once had them fried whole with a cherry sweet and sour sauce. There meat is not firm but taste great. I was happily surprised.
