I used to occasionally net shad years ago on freshwater, but I'm just now relearning. I'm okay with the throwing, but looking for general tips on netting mullet--where, when and how.
I generally fish out edgewater in the creeks, or north of Titusville on the irl. Not looking for specific locations--more just water depth and characteristics, time of day, how to see them, etc.
Any help would be much appreciated. Hoping to take the kiddo out early early on Sunday.
They can be spooky however, and if you are not fast or cannot anticipate the direction they will go, you wont get many per toss. When you throw your net, you want the back end to land on the center of where they were in the school and most of it foward of them. If you try to throw on top of them, you wont get a whole lot.

Don't have the kid on the platform yet, but he does okay with the trolling motor...
Looks like my stepson did about 15 years ago. They love to be doing something, even if it is terrorizing the bait in the well.
