Been fishing at my local river recently and have seen huge numbers of schools of mullet like 50 in a school pretty big too. I have tried alot to catch these like
– Soft bait
– Bait catcher / small flys
and no response for them they just swim straight past it
What am i doing wrong?
Purchased a 4 ft cast net so that should work28/12/2013 at 7:34 am #24358troutfishernzParticipant
Very small hooks with bits bread seems to work best for me. Good fun catching them on rod and reel as the bigger ones can actually fight quite hard.28/12/2013 at 7:59 am #24361yellowfinParticipant

I head to the nearest bridge and dangle a burley cage off it ….several pillies mashed into 1/3 a loaf of bread …
Jiggle the cage until the mullet arrive – then jiggle it as time permits between catches …
Bower bridge is my favorite , maybe the slight water discolouration helps
Bare hooks , smallish and silver seem to work best ……jig the hooks like you are using a flasher rig .

get some brand wheat germ, about 2 cup of it and stir it with water in a vessel until its becomes a thick paste, then mix it into water again, this will have temp the mullets, then take a very small hook with bread squeezed onto it under a little float, once around throw plenty of wheat germ out to keep fish in the area…
