I have noticed that some fish taste much better if cooked fresh rather than
frozen or refrigerated. Bluefish and mullet are the two most affected by
storage. As I said earlier mullet are so strong you can smell a school of
them as they pass by. They do make great cut bait, everything seems to eat
them. I can catch tiny ones in the spring (1/2 to 1") they make great fish
food and ship fairly easily. They don't even look like mullet at this stage
but look like tiny slivers of aluminum foil. Very pretty, if they stayed that
small they would be great aquarium fish. They will live in freshwater getting
larger than individuals that live in salt water. They get land locked
sometimes if a creek is made into a lake and I have seen them almost three
feet long. Of course they cannot breed in freshwater.
