I'm seeing lots of Mullet turning up in my local river and was wondering the best way to go about catching them? I've heard their good sport but never targeted them before so whats the best method? baits etc? I've been told to use very small hooks (size?) and compressed bread (white?) on a float is this correct? The river I've been seeing them in is very shallow (too shallow for floats) so was considering if a ledger or some other type of rig would work. Also does anybody know if their any good to eat?

Hi mate. If it that shallow use a lightfeeder type rod with a plain lead ledger rig just enough to hold bottom so you can work it though the swim if needed. mashed bread groundbait. Bread on a size 10 or 12 hook. Take a bit of bread and fold it over the hook and pinch it all around the edges so it traps the hook and a bit of air inside( so it looks a bit like a pasty?). that should be all you need. Have fun.
