Why YES!!!! I know the owner of The Mullet Shack and he is usually at the intersection of US Hwy 41 and Apollo Beach Blvd. He will be there Oct. 30th and the 31st. And then he will be at The Ruskin Seafood Fest on Nov. 6th and 7th. After the Ruskin Seafood Fest he will have a new location on Shell Point Rd and US Hwy 41 1 blk west of the intersection. It will be next to The Cafe By The Bay (1st st NW and Shell Point Rd) They use an old family recipe to smoke their mullet and it's always fresh! Check them out! You won't regret it! He can be contacted at (813)294-3936 and ask for Steve. They do take orders.

Fat Willies Fish Camp I'd bet.

Default Smoked Mullet

I love Ted Peter's Smoked Fish but on the other side of the bay we have the "Mullet Man" who sets up his trailer on Rte41 just south of Big Bend Road in the Apollo Beach/Riverview area on Saturday Afternoons. He has small, medium and large smoked mullet and also a spread which I have not tried. Check him out! The mullet is good and it saves a 80+ mile r/t to Ted's. Sorry for the late answer but I just joined the forum.

Try Mike's Smokin' Mullet at Mickey's Market on 4th Street in St. Pete. He also has Mike's Smokin' Salmon and Mike's Smokin' Seafood fish spread. Just had some the other day. Delicious.

Here's Mickey's number (727) 894-7751 or you can call Mike directly at (727) 527-5355.

Hope that helps!

Smile Found smoked mullet -

As a Tampa native I grew up eating SM, love it! The Mullet Inn on the Causeway is long gone, but well remembered and I have yet to get mullet as good, but found a few places.

In North East Tampa, Thonnotassa area (sp?) there is a guy who sells good ones. Go North on hwy.301, past Fowler (goes to USF Uni.) and there is a small gass station on right side (east) who sells a couple days a week. Def sells on fridays. I believe he has a white concession trailer. His name is Mr. Harris.

Also, there is a seafood store on 15th and Lake ave. Not a great area of town, but a thriving business there. It's called Oriental Fish Co., 3608 N. 15th St. # c. 33605, phone is: 813-247-5128. Have FRESH fish there, too. Reasonable prices. I like a little less seasoning than they do, but it's good. Believe they have it on Thurs, Fri, Sat.

There was a guy on 301, just north of MLK, but his mullet was not so good. Hiss BBQ is, but I actually hated his mullet. Tasted like it was on the smoker about 5 minutes, wrong sauce. I believe he really didn't know the old-style recipe and cooking method, IMHO.
Of course there is always Ted Peters in St. Pete. Awesome place, higher prices but very good and very realiable. It's famous for a reason.
*****NOTE: Most Sweetbays will carry frozen Smoked Mullet, BUT, generally they hold it back and YOU HAVE TO REQUEST them to get it. Done this before. IMHO I think Skippers SM is mediocre. Too small, dried out and too much money for such a small one. But, it is available there.

Hey, hope this helps. Look for the guy on north 301 and maybe inquire at the station about his hours. He carries some NICE BBQ as well.
I'm getting some from him tomorrow and another tampa native and I are gonna enjoy us some mullet!!!! Good Luck to all!
