Anybody ever try mullet for bait? I got a buddy who fishes coast every 6 weeks or so and has mullet leftover many times he'd give me.

I don't like them, get soft fast and don't seem oily or stinky enough for me. Shad out fish mullet for me 2 or 3 to 1. I've wanted to try skip Jack but have never got my hands on any.

In Louisiana, it is the Best bait... Cut Mullet, but up here it depends, I have used in in Texoma, and did ok, but was a one time only. and Yes can get mushy fast. but Free bait is always worth a try. lol

Opinions vary, but I'll tell you that I know for a fact that catfish will eat mullet. I've caught some nice catfish on cut mullet.

No, I probably wouldn't.

NO Not over shad, but if I had some I would put them in the water, probably on a Jug line...

There are better choices if you don’t use shad. I have never done very well with them as compared to other saltwater bait. If he catches skipjacks aka ladyfish they are very productive, get him to save you some. Kingfish is good but is a sport fish so you know the rules on that. Not sure if you would get in trouble being you can buy them at Fiesta Market. Ribbonfish also work well.

Gizzard shad are herrings... the oilier the bait, the better.
