Put one or two treble hooks ( about 3/0 to 5/0 ) on a leader about 2 ft. long,How do you "snatch mullet"??
I know some restaurants freeze them for short periods. I think bleeding mullet makes a big difference in their taste too.Same over here on the Choctawhatchee like Billyb. Holes are on the edge of the bay. Taste must be just fine if the number of fishing boats is an indicator. Years back there was a hole about 3 or 4 miles up the river but is no longer fished. That was before I got started mullet fishing.
On eating the old wives tale that mullet is not fit to eat unless fresh is false and it can't be frozen. A vacuum pack is best but I freeze mullet fillets without skin in water now and then. If I know it will be eaten in a few days I don't use water. It taste just fine to me.
All my life I lived under this false impresseion because that's what my grandaddy believed, but a couple of years ago I started reading about this on the net and tried freezing. It works just fine if you don't leave them frozen for many months. If the truth was known I bet restaurats serve frozen mullet now and then.
Note: My granddaddy had an ice box cooler and the ice man delivered 25 lb block of ice box very few days. He eventually got a small refridgerator with no freezer except a tiny compartment for an ice tray. So actually he was probabbly right.....mullet had to be fresh to eat. I never thought about that before.
