From a boat, Wade or bridge and what area are you looking at. Don't know what area you are in.

Not with a boat, I'm looking at anywhere in the Tampa bay, Pinellas area.

Not trying to sound vague but that is a broad question. Mullet are everywhere in the Tampa area. Just pull over at any bridge or shore line and wait for them to come by. The SE side of the Courtney Campbell is a good spot. You can wade in the lagoon here (27.87223,-82.609632) or wade out on the SW side of the Gandy. The 4th St Bridge close to 275. The pier at Weedon Island. Either side of the Skyway Bridge is good. The sandy areas on the NE side of the Draw Bridge in Tierra Verde or Mullet Key Bayou in Ft DeSoto. Heck anywhere in Ft DeSoto for that matter. So brush up on your Cast Net skills, bring a cooler of cold drink and “Go Get Ya Some”

There's a top secret spot down in Bradenton off the Manatee Ave bridge that's got swarms of mullet crossing under it. U just need to get there early, have some patience & a good spread when it counts.

I just got back into cast netting after a few years off. Find a place to park at some of the lagoons along West Shore Ave north of Gandy. They hold large mullet of the 3 to 5 pound size on high tides and in pretty good schools. Lots of "no parking", and "no fishing" signs though, so don't hang around too long. Make a few throws and get out of there. 666
