Default Pompano, Flounder, and Mullet

Went to the Key yesterday with my Dad to do a little Pompano fishing. Fished for about 5 hours without a bite. Left there and went to a spot on the bay to see if we could catch some flounder. When we got there we found it loaded with mullet. No castnet with us at this time. Had errands to run. Took care of errands and back with castnet about 1.5 hours later. Where are all the mullet we had seen? Messed around and scraped up about 14. Good enough for a mess. I just about forgot to take a pic. So here ya go.......

No, not this time. It really depends on the mood I'm in at the time.

I agree. dont you hate it when you tell someone you eat mullet and they look at you like your crazy? I have a few friends who think i am an idiot for eating them. of course, my friends arent from around here and dont eat grits either...

You can scale them or skin them. I prefer to skin them. Fried is the only way I like to eat them. It truly is hard tobeat the taste ofgood fresh mullet.
