How Do You Catch Bully (sea) Mullet?


Recommended Posts

Hi fishraiders,

I've often seen very large bully mullet in the brackish waters of rivers and estuaries, but never been able to catch them.

They look a good prospect: good average size (often over 1 kg), would fight well, and should be OK on the plate -- the pros catch tons of them when they run up the Central Coast in April each year.

A mate told me they don't take the usual baits that the smaller yellow eye and sand mullet take: bread, pieces of prawn, squirt worm etc. Is that true?

Anybody had success on bullys?

Bob, I've had a bit of sucess on the bullies. They take dough when they're excited by some particle berley, including some bread. They're sometimes wary, though - so consider using a naturally-coloured float. Mate, if you have any questions, drop me a PM. I normally use a sawn-off champagne cork as a float.
