I saw that but wasn't sure if they actually fell into the mullet family or not, but thanks for that

They are a type of goat fish - not mullet, despite the common name.

No size limit. As per regulations if not in the book then max bag of 5.
Commercial trawlers keep them down to about 10cm. They are small bycatch in the trawl industry, but they get a high price for them.
There's nothing . . . absolutely nothing . . . half so much worth doing as simply messing around in boats.
