Mullet baits.

Postby dunner » Sat Jul 04, 2009 12:04 pm

Any one used maggot fly for mullet?
Or jelly maggots?
Or spoon fly's?
Do any of these things work?
Or are you best sticking to bread and a float?
What is the BEST method of targeting mullet on the fly?? :shock:

i use jelly maggots, they float on the surface and if you put 2 live white maggots on it proves deadly some days.
