it's preety simple. you can see the colour change on the side of the fish. put it anywhere above that. as long as you don't go threw the spine u won't kill it.

it's very hard to kill a mullet. i've let them go after having them on the hook for 1/2 hour without n e thing having a go at it.
they are very hardy.

Another way is to put your hook through the bottom lip and out the top lip.......they are tough little critters those mullet !!

Another trick with live fish is to trim the tail. Trim the top fork to give it some up thrust or trim the bottom fork for some downward thrust.

We use a 2 hook rig for mullet. The bottom hook upbove the lateral line towards the tail & the top hook through the top lip. They seem to survive for a long time hooked like this.
