Does it work well for mullet?
This chum does not work for mullet… it’s designed for meat eating baitfish like sardines, pilchards, whitebait, greenbacks, pinfish, grunts, croakers, etc.
I mainly catch and fish with mullet in the Laguna Madre and just today bought some Blackout. Does it not work at all for mullet? If not any suggestions for a chum for mullet?
I do not know of any chum that works for mullet… perhaps oats does since they are vegetarian. But the easiest way to get mullet is generally to get our super early to catch them in a cast net before the sun gets high and helps them evade the net.
Great video Luke! Just purchased a bag of Black Out and can’t wait to try it. For those of us who fish and throw cast nets from a kayak, would you recommend making the chum balls ahead of time? Maybe placing them in a zip lock bag until we get to the spot to start chumming? I always try to take as little as possible on the kayak.
Thanks again for the great education!
If you know that you’ll be chumming up bait and that you’ll be doing it right away when you get out on the water, it may be worth doing. Otherwise, it’ll be helpful to keep the chum dry in case you decide to not bother with chumming.
Planning to fish the Steinhatchee area, is the white bait typically caught in that area in August
I have never fished there in August so I can’t say for sure. There will certainly be some baitfish around that’ll be attracted to the chum since it appeals to pretty much all non-vegetarian baitfish (pinfish, grunts, pilchards, threadfin, etc.),
I’ve come to the same conclusion about using a pole as an anchor – it works great. I have something called a “Superstick” – a 6 foot pole that telescopes to 12 feet, and when extended fits nicely in the pole holder on my 16 foot skiff. I have a 20 foot Moonlighter, but for 95% of what I do, it just gets in the way so it spends most of the time hanging in the garage. I’ve also got a Micro Powerpole, which generally works well, but I have two problems with it – 1) around here there are a lot of oyster shells on the bottom, even though you might not seem to be near a bed. When the Micropole goes down, it almost always drags a little bit and this often makes hellacious noise. 2) beware a falling tide – if you deploy this thing, get busy fishing and the tide falls 6 inches, it will get jammed up and blow the fuse – then you’re really screwed with the thing stuck in the down position.

Thanks for the information. Looking forward to trying it.
Hey Luke, have you ever tried a “cajun anchor”? These are solid stainless rods that come in multiple lengths like 4 and 6 feet. The weight drives them into the bottom to hold fast. They are much shorter than the pole you are using and may be a better option for those who would have trouble storing/running with a larger pole. Micro poles from Power-Pole work great too for smaller boats; Its tall pole stores in the unit while running and can be engaged while fishing to hold boat in place or just to move it out of the way for fishing. It is expensive however, but they have a great 2 year warranty I use both on my 16 foot aluminum bass boat here in the salt marsh in Louisiana.
I have seen the cajun anchors online before, but never used them… seems like they are mostly for muddy bottoms, so I go with the pole anchors since I am often anchoring in sandy areas.
I just purchased the Black out chum power to cast net for bait from the shore. is this a possibility as I do not own a boat but like using fresh bait I don’t have to pay for.
Yes, you can certainly use this chum without having a boat. You’ll just need to be able to position yourself in a spot that is upcurrent of an area with some good bait (pier, seawall, or wading).
