I have always caught sea mullet on a regular or handmade bottom rig and shrimp or sand fleas. I have been reading that a double spec rig tipped with shrimp is the best way to catch them. Anyone done this? Are we talking about an old style double spec rig? Any links or pics?

We drift fish with them. Just tip the jigs with fresh shrimp. Usually 1-2 oz. bank sinkers will be sufficient.
This is how we always did it. Good rig for gray trout too. Sometimes the grays like it jigged up and down a little.

Sea Mullet & Spec Rigs

Don't overlook Fishbites Bloodworm! I hear the real thing is selling in excess of $10 for 10 of the things and the Fishbites version is equally effective. Sea Mullet, gray trout, spot, croakers, and hogfish all are caught on the spec rig & Fishbites combo. Spec rigs come in sizes. The 1/8th oz. size is probably the best all-around size. Drift until you find a concentration of fish, then anchor. Use a regular bank sinker just heavy enough to bounce bottom while drifting. They'll fill your cooler and later, your tummy (except that one gray trout you're allowed to keep).

I always keep some fish bites on me.
Bloodworm, shrimp, crab, and squid.

Does it work? Most of the time I can catch fish on fish bites.
Had a few times when the bite died out and switched to the real thing to keep catching.
