Reply To: Mullet and Akaroa


Sounds good Zac, thanks.

Do you think it’s ok to freeze them then use in winter? I have a feeling the mullet aren’t around in winter??

I actually caught a few mullet on a 10 gram z spinner while fishing at the mouth of the Opihi about a month ago, they were actually fairly sized! But put them back. Only had my trout rod with me and thought I’d try my luck at a salmon, but tackle too light really.

Looking forward to getting some red cod this winter, some say they aren’t the best fish etc but I’m sure one could produce something out of them. And they produce nice big bites on your rod which are fun! I think a combination of mullet and Tuatua on a hook would be great cod bait!
