Grey Mullet
Grey Mullet While many people think that grey mullet is best used as bait, for snapper in particular, it tantalises human taste buds as smoked fish.
Mullet is popular smoked; the oily flesh that makes it ideal as a cut-bait also ensures it is a favourite among those who like their fish cured rather than cooked.
