Did you gig that mullet or catch it on a line?

My wife (from Mississippi) swears that folks used to catch them on a line back home. I've never heard of anything but by a cast net or snagging them from bridges.

I have caught two on rods and reels in my life. One ate a shrimp, the other ate a gold spoon.

I've caught thousands of them on wigglers and bread dough in blackwater and escambia over the last 30 years. Use rabbit pellets to bait them up and they fight as hard as any fish there size.

Good Job Jim, went last night myself and water was terrible. About 2 foot visibility and the wind never did lay down like forecasted. Managed 4 , but worked for them. Had one good one at 23 and the rest were around 17. Hopefully better days acoming. Excitement of the night was a 8 foot gator that I ran over and she blew up under the boat. That will make you leave your flipflops.

Those gators will scare the crap out of you! The wife and I ran over one in similar fashion last summer, in St. Joe bay of all places. Once the wife realized what it was, she found a perch on top of the outboard. LOL.

We gigged them all except the crabs, we pick them up with homemade grabbers. And lots of folk catch mullet here, mainly snatch them but they do bite dough on a hook.
