Using mullet to find game fish
Mullet are a primary food source for fish during late summer. They are abundant and often times will guide you to productive fishing spots. Locating reefs, spoil banks and flats with an abundance of bait and mullet can be the key to finding choice game fish. Once you have found a good spot, you can imitate mullet with topwater baits, spoons and soft plastics, like the Shimano Waxwing or the Jackall Bowstick. You can also catch mullet using a cast net. When fishing areas with an abundance of bait, look for areas that are likely to have ambush points. Ambush points are created with water movement and structure changes; wind and tides will push bait consistently over certain areas. Trout and redfish use those points to ambush bait for an easy meal.
