Egret Baits Vudu Mullet, 3-1/2-Inch, Injured

$7.99


This swimming mullet bait is ideal for all saltwater species

Bluefish usually attack a baitfish from the back and bite off the rear section of the fish. Because of this it is necessary to rig the mullet bait so that the hook is at the rear of the fish. Special mullet rigs are available to accomplish this. Three of them are shown in the photos below.

The mullet rig has a float and a long wire with a loop at the end. The wire is inserted through the mouth of the mullet baitfish, then out the rear of the fish. A special hook that has two shanks and hooks then is threaded through the loop on the end of the wire. The hooks then are at the rear of the baitfish, where you want them to catch a bluefish.

Mullet Baitfish and Rigging Mullet to Catch Bluefish

The mullet rig has a float and a long wire with a loop at the end. The wire is inserted through the mouth of the mullet baitfish, then out the rear of the fish. A special hook that has two shanks and hooks then is threaded through the loop on the end of the wire. The hooks then are at the rear of the baitfish, where you want them to catch a bluefish.

The small mullet float rig has two floats and two smaller hooks. The mullet baitfish is cut in half, and the two halves are put on the two hooks. Since the baits are short, the bluefish tends to take the whole bait, and the hook. This rig works fine for small and medium size bluefish but the hooks are a little small for really large bluefish.
