There will be plenty people down fishing for them now with a post like this! A wee tip maybe want to keep specific locations of huge shoals of mullet to yourself rather than posting on an open forum with tens of thousands of members (especially any away from marks that are widely known)

Exactly one of the main points of a forum like this is to pass on tips and information about fishing and where to fish. In my opinion the attitudes of some people and their 'secret marks' to me is wrong, a bit cliquey and not in the spirit of fishing. The more people who share their knowledge then the better it'll be for the next generation of anglers.

These fish are less likely to be netted than the others on the South side of the River

the Loch lomond baillifs seem to be reasonably active

(Before anyone says anything I Know Mullet do not come under Game fish restrictions)

I've been fishing for them at Irvine recently, after a few weeks of trying i finally managed to hook one around 4 - 5lb, only then to wonder how i was going to get it up with 4lb line, match rod and size 10 hook and with no net (drop net would be ideal) it slipped off while i tried to hand line it up the harbour wall.

It would have been returned anyway but it gave a great fight on light gear far better than any salmon or trout of a similar size i'd say.

I wouldn't say my remarks are silly i was offering you some friendly advice on posting. I noticed you have only posted a few dozen times yourself so I figured you are fairly new to this forum. Talking from experience and seeing the decline of my own local marks such as Burntisland breakwater, east neuk piers in winter and various west coast sea lochs with huge problems with litter, fires, illegal camping, numpties, neds, restricted access etc. I'm not saying its purely down to anglers on this forum just suggesting a bit of discretion doesn't go a miss.

Will you enjoy fishing for mullet at the river leven when there's 20 other people throwing bait at the same shoal as you spooking all the fish? Then you'll see idiots trying to foul hook them with big treble hooks and leaving beer cans, disposable BBQs, tackle waste, and even human feces at their behinds? And if someone comes along and nets them all in the next few weeks time (which happens regularly with big mullet shoals by the way - worth a lot of money on the european and asian markets) I can assure you it will break your heart and you'll wish you had kept the mark to yourself.

I am not suggesting that we should all clam up and keep information to ourselves, if you check back my previous posts from as far as 3 years back you will see I have personally contributed a great deal to this forum in the way of catch reports and advice through PM's to a great deal of forum members. I always offer advice and tips to anyone who needs or wants them, as an angler who has fished all my life and had the opportunity to fish for Scotland at international level and learn from the best anglers in Britain I can assure you I have plenty to bring to the table. I am sure dozens of forum members would testify to the helpfulness of my posts and private messages, not to mention the work I have done repairing and rebuilding their rods.

I was merely pointing out that a post entitled "Mullet" advertising literally thousands of mullet in the river leven is an open invitation to anyone wanting to have a go, or should your chosen profession be to take fish from our rivers and seas to sell, make a quick buck. Good luck fishing for the mullet by the way, great fun if you catch one! I sincerely hope your local mullet hot spot is not abused and ruined as so many of the marks close to me have been after similar revelations on this forum.

thats a hell of a lot of assumptions there mate as the post says mullet it is an open invitation for anyone to fish for them and it was an indication for ppl on the other side of the clyde whom i know fish for mullet that theres loads at the mouth of the leven and no my profession is not to take fish from the river for a quick buck and i do know how much money is in mullet at the markets but even if i was doing it for the money by netting them what has it really got to do with you as its legal mate legal but i only use a rod sorry to hear about you losing your marks close to you but again everyone is entitled to fish and i was merely letting local guys next to me or whoever for that matter thats there plenty of good fishing to be had here the now since every other day i seem to read about decline so was trying to lift the doom and gloom for some of the guys i know fish for mullet.and about breaking my heart i doubt it mate the main reason i left this thread till late august is because they be away in a few weeks.as for the other 20 ppl baiting the shoal i doubt it mate as the whole river is moving with them and for you counting my posts and offering me advice on mullet or when and what to post i find very diluded and am not intrested about how many rods youve fixed just dont come on and try to hijack my thread with sarcy comments because reading the other users replys on my thread i was sharing where good fish and good tides for catching them where thats all atb gerry82 p.s its not a secret mark its just this year its fishing alot better for them
