    hello mate, which harbour? torquay, brixham, etc. these mullet are everywhere along this coast. they can be caught on a variety of baits including, crab, cockles, maggot, bread, cheese paste, i used to catch them in torquay harbour on the land side under the walk ways. you can get down , be careful though.
    if you get a chance, try and get into newton abbott, the upper stretches of the river teign at low tide by the railway bridges. you could also hook into some carp, they are huge aswell, all doubles.
    you can always ask in the tackle shops around torquay and paignton. cheers mark
    :confused: WOW, things have changed.:confused:

      I hooked one at Stoke Gabriel in April on the pole with 0.14 straight through and Grey Hydro equivalent. It was no contest, I thought I had it beaten twice before it woke up and headed towards the far bank and smashed me!

      I would recommend a minimum of 6lb line as you never know when you might hook one of over 2lb. lol

      As for bait, bread is far and away the number one, but as Wilf suggests, meaty baits sometimes do very well. Bacon is a particular fave at Stoke Gabriel Millpond.
