    Smoked ( Atlantic ) Mullet and a cold beer , that's some good eating.
    Fresh water Mullet taste like cotton , no flavor.

    I don't know of anyone who eats Mullet. They are bait fish here. Texas Parks and Wildlife tells me why:

    I guess y'all have different growing conditions, or something.

    The Atlantic did not have an oil spill to contaminate everything. Since mullet eat vegetation and have gizzards my guess is they are ingesting small amounts of oil residue ( from the spill ) in the Texas and Louisianian section of the Gulf that has settled on or in the vegetation and are retaining some of the oil. I don't think I would want to eat any from that section of the Gulf but some from the west side of Florida around the keys and Florida Bay should be OK.

    The ones we have fried or smoked are really some good chow just by them selves or with some fries , cold slaw and ice cold beer. They are like potato chips , you can't eat just one. :lol:

    The best of both worlds , smoked or fried ( Borrowed the picture from Outdoorsdownsouth.com )

    Our bay mullet and Atlantic mullet might be in the same family but they are two different fish. Example - Cat family--Lion vs. house cat. Eat bay mullet once and you won't do it again. Great bait.

    Hmmm, I've never eaten a lion or a House cat. Which is better?

    Depends - the lazy house cat will be better fed and therefore fatter (greasy!). Whereas the lion, who has to work for a living, will be leaner and more heart healthy. :roll:

    The old mountain men claimed mountain lion was the best meat you could get.
    Chuck They had the Texas Ranger at Galveston Texas because they nearly had a riot over the Vietnamese killing and eating dogs , some ole Texas redneck women caught them skinning her poodle . it nearly got sticky.

    chuck that's why I don,t eat much chineze? yep vieanas and grits would be good too. I guess you have to be mighty hungry to eat some things though? I haven't got that hungry yet on some things. :lol: I guess like the old saying though what you don,t know want hurt you. :wink: :mrgreen:

    Ron,
    I've heard the same thing about mountain lion being quite tasty. Definitely would be more meat than a tabby cat. I don't think I could eat a house cat anyway. Have you ever smelled that crappy looking food we feed them?
