The early spring Brunswick County pier and surf action has been dominated by the good news of strong sea mullet runs. Last year was a good year for them, too, and with catches of spot and croaker seeming to decline each year, they are rapidly becoming our most dependable panfish.
Sea mullet, also called whiting or Virginia mullet in North Carolina, are a generally small but delicious fish caught from the northern Atlantic Ocean beaches (where northern anglers call them kingfish) all the way down around into the Gulf of Mexico.
