Mullet fishing reports are generally more of a by-catch than a direct result of fishers targeting the species. Such as bream, pinky snapper and flathead. Especially around piers and in estuaries.

However, Mullet is not too bad grilled or fried in breadcrumbs. They are also excellent beginners fish on light tackle. Especially great for introducing kids to fishing.

Scientific Name: Mugilidae sp.

August 2022 Mullet Bait Reports Year To Date


According to the Victorian Fisheries Dept Mullet can be taken home at any size with a bag limit of 40 of any mullet species.

Because of their greater numbers, compared to other species of Mullet are considered to be a sustainable resource. So it’s a pity more fishers didn’t take a crack at mullet fishing – at least with as much gusto as they do for species like Bream and snapper!

I personally fish for mullet using chicken (and a special formula I marinate it in) along with a berley cage.

Suggested Mullet Tackle Options

Light lines are an advantage when targeting Mullet. As they are smaller-mouthed than many other species a smaller hook, with smaller bait, kind of follows.

A paternoster or a running sinker is fine. With the minimum weight sinker needed to just get the bait down without drift. If you can fish with no sinker at all. But currents will dictate if that is practical or not.
