If your going to fish from the beach out front it is time to start thinking about using mullet.  I know many believe it is too early but because there is a slow down in the fishing, mullet will spark your catching ability.  Most shops have them now and are going for about 12 for 5 bucks give or take.  Allow them to defrost a bit as they will be easier to put them on the hook.

There are 2 ways to rig them and I will use either way.  If I have my mullet tool that i make myself which is nothing more than a piece of thick wire with a small hook twist on one end.  I like to make these out of the wire that one uses to fasten chain link fencing to the rails.  I pass this through the mouth and out the vent.  Using a smaller hook like a 2/0 or 3/0 circle with a short leader  about 8 to 10 inches long putting the loop of the leader onto the tool you made bring the leader back through the mullet.  Hook the hook back by the tail as blues especially will attack the tail first.

This way is messier but I find the bait stays on  longer and through some rough water.

The second method is to pass the hook through the mullets mouth and out through the gill plate, than hook the hook in the tail the same way as described earlier.  Yes I know you can buy mullet rigs but I'm cheap, I admit it.

If there are fish around you will have no problem catching using these methods.  If you do use these methods write and let me know how you did.

Happy Catching
