Default Choctaw Mullet

East end of Choctawhatchee Bay is producing some fair mullet catches at the holes although I havn't been doing much fishing. On Oct 5. we got about 15 on gold hooks, but the guys snatching were getting much larger roe mullet. Had a report yesterday of a limit on Oct 12 of about half and half roe mullet.

However, yesterday my gold hook instructor and I nailed 21, all on gold hooks. Snatched for 2 or 3 hours without a single fish being caught except bait fish. This was a perfect morning for fishing but the bite was so slow it took us 6 hours to nail the 21.

The area was teeming with menhaden, LY's, and a few pin fish. Bait fish were a real nusance. There were thousands all around the boat most of the morning. You could see them a couple feet deep.
There were 3 boats at the hole. One got nothing, one got 1 mullet, and we got 21. Some of ours had roe but they were not the big boys like a couple of week s ago.

Snatching and gold hook fishing I bet we caught 40 to 50 bait fish. Tried bream fishing at the hole and all I caught were bait fish.

The river has been falliing all week. The current level predicted for next week is looking like good fishin

around Caryville and north.

Here is something to look at made a couple of weeks ago. Don't remember if I posted it or not


Mullet fishing can be a lot of fun if they are biting. It sure takes a lot of patients though if there is no bite or it's slow

Default Took all morning....Nov 3

It took all morning but a a buddy and I put 16 mullet in the box this morning using the gold hook method. Snatching didn't do squat. The bite was way off from the past several weeks. This was expected with the cold snap last night. The catch today was 2 roe mullet and the rest were silvers. From this the roe fish must have moved on out to the gulf to spwan. The bite has been really good for past couple of months but not every day.


With the weather change it's time to get the crappie gear dusted off and get the minnow buckets and jig supply in good order. Next week there is a gathering of the Talquin guys and the word is the bite is improving. Will have to go see for myself.

Default Mullet have disappeared

Last Saturday we had 16 jump in the boat, but two trips later was almost zilch. One for 1 trip, and a buddy got 2 on a trip. Hope this isn't an omen for Talquin trip tomorrow for few days. All this rain isn't going to make for comfortable fishing either.

We hit em again this afternoon during the peak 'fishing time', and got two in two hours. Every other mullet fisherman is smarter than I. We were the only boat there. Time to put what energy I can muster into something else.

Squirrel season starts on the YRMA this Saturday. Probably the same for Choctawhatchee.

We will be up North of 20. First time in the woods this year for me. First time taking my son hunting as well. He said he wants to eat fish and squirrels at camp.
We will be good on the squirrels but I cant catch a fish on the Choctawhatchee to save my life.

Yep. regular squirrel season just around the corner. I have been hunting on private land. Will miss the big one as will be at talquin. River rise here on the choctaw may make it difficult to walk in the woods.
