Default Mullet Snatching

After reading fishwaltons thread about mullet snatchings with treble hooks, I wanted to ask the last month Ive been seeing 5 to 10 boats stacked on top of each other in one of the river fingers of blackwater bay. Are they doing this??? I thought maybe there was a great shellcracker hole there but mullet snatching makes sense. I've wanted to go over and ask but didn't want to screw up their fishing. The crab guy in BW does he sell those to people or to restaurants?

If your talking about the area just east of Morrell Landing then you are spot on for mullet snatching.You will need some Rex brand dog food(it sinks) some 25-30# line some treble hooks,a cork and either a cane pole or a good stiff fishing pole.And two poles about 15' long with a way to tie them to your boat front and rear.If you go,please use your trolling motor to get close to the other boats,and pull right up behind or in front of the line of boats.

Where was this? Do you basically feel the fish bump the line/hook and jerk?

I'm off this morning to see if I can learn a little more about snagging mullet. Looks like a good day to be out somewhere on the water after all the weather we have been having.

A buddy of mine was in Alabama a while back having a sales lunch with some potential customers. When they found out he was from Milton all they wanted to talk about was "The Hole". They said they make a trip down to "The Hole" at least twice a month for the some of the best mullet fishing in the South.
