    Salting Mullet

    Hi All

    Does anyone here salt whole mullet for bait?

    I've read that you can salt mullet fillets and whole pillies but nothing on whole mullet.

    I need some whole mullet to take unrefrigerated for an extended crabbing trip.

    Cheers, Ivan

    I would just chuck some salt ( rock ) in and Cryovac them. They will last a long time.

    Cheers

    Do they then have to be refrigerated? Will they work just as well for crabs? I had the impression crabs like their mullet as fresh as possible.

    What we have left over at days end goes into ziplock plastic bags and gets frozen to take out next time incase livies are on the lean side.. Use once and then into the briney feed the fish or you can use for crab pots though might be a tad soft which i doubt will matter so long as they arent on the nose.

    In the NT before the crab pros were banned in the Gulf one of them had cryovaced bags of beef in his centre cab cuddy, reckoned he would go days with them so long as they were in a cool place.
