There were some nice ones cruising around when I was there a couple of weeks ago. Family holiday so didn't have any kit, next time though...!I have a week down in Padstein coming up, and will be targetting the Mullet both in the harbour and on the outer harbour wall I usually use a size 10,or 8, to 7 lb flouro, 8 lb mono main line, and have found them to be just about right for breadflake .
I fish two methods , either a flowing trace above a sinker downtide of a weighted onion sack hung down the harbour wall, mashed bread in the sack, and breadflake on the hook, or a plain freshwater waggler float above a similar set up as above, the Mullet dont seem put off at all by the 7 lb flouro. I usually use a heavy quivertip rod for the breadflake downtide of the onion sack, and a heavy float rod for the waggler setup.I have seen some mahoosive mullet there in the past, and would not want to be undergunned in the rod/ line dept.
Seeing as the weather forecast is not so good I will probably be after the Mullet in the relative shelter of the harbour as opposed to getting soaked and blown inside out on the beaches or rock marks.
I'd love to have a go at fly fishing for mullet! Only ever caught one and it went like stink so on a fly rod that would be exciting!I tend to put a bucket of mashed bread thrown upstream in tidal Cuckmere river.
Either size 10 or 12 hook with bread flake with a couple of bb split shot 3ft from the hook.
Alternatively use my fly rod and a size 12/14 shrimp pattern fly with a 10ft 6lb leader. Great sport and they fight better than a bass.
