Thread: Mullet

  1. #1

    Mullet

    Just wondering...the mullet that school up in big mobs in the Pine would be sea mullet, and as such would be subject to a 30cm limit right? Dropped a cast net on a couple the other day but wasnt sure of the legalities of using them for strip baits or taking home for tucker.

    The fisheries site has a pretty easy to identify chart for Mullet.

    All Mullet tails look pretty much the same, but the body at the tail varies, as do the eyes

    All mullet is good eating once they have been out in the sea for a few days.

    In my experience poddies tend not to school up in the deeper water, that would tend to be school mullet.

    Poddies is just a generic name for any small Mullet, I have caught them in inches of water, and seen them in schools way out past the shelf, what they are doing there is anyone's guess.

    I agree, very difficult to tell for me anyway from the pics.

    Re: Mullet

    I have this for you.



    So the Sea Mullet and the Diamond Scale Mullet both have size and bag limits.

    No such thing as a Poddy Mullet, just an undersized Mullet, like Squire is to Snapper.

    I can get more precise details of description, if needed ?

    cheers LP

    So what you're saying is that the taking of any poddy mullet is illegal because you're taking under the size limit

    Re: Mullet

    No, that's not what he is saying, as mentioned a couple of times now, "poddy" is simply a name for small Mullet of all types, a couple do have size limits, some just have a bag limit, identifying the "size" species is not that difficult.

    Re: Mullet

    Had some Fisheries suss us out once.
    Very polite and informative and wanted to see in esky.
    Had a packet of frozen poddy mullet there and they said one has to be carefull with small mullet as if sea or diomond scale they do have size and bag limit.
    Chatted about how to ID them but for me its still a tad confusing and yes i would appreciate detailed info of how to.
    Nowdays unless positive i dont keep livies im not sure about, best way i think in staying safe.
    Though very rarely we get the sea mullet through here unless they are big buggars :-).
