How to catch a vegetarian fish

I f you ever have been to Florida or any coastal states and walked the beaches or jeties and seen guys throwing cast nets and wondered what they were catching? Well most are getting mullet.It is a vegetarian fish.And alot of guys will tell you that they won't bite a hook.And that you need a cast net.I'm not buying a net to use one or twice a year or so.But I want some mullet to smoke.They are really great to eat.In the fall at Fort Walton Beach they have a yearly fish fry with mullet,shell cracker,and some times gator on a stick.Let me tell you a secret how to get some mullet fresh out of the salt water. Start by chumming bread in the water, then throw a small hook out that is covered in bread and just wait.Clean em,smoke em and WOW great meal.

We use a mixture of laying

We use a mixture of laying mash and oatmeal as chum. Rigged with a bobber and 2-3 small hooks with a piece of rubber worm the size of a piece of oatmeal on em. Throw a ball of chum out and watch them pop the surface, then throw your bobber right on top of them. Pop the bobber every now and then if you don't get a bite right away.

It's alot easier to gig them though.Whistling
