Men work together on Atlantic Beach setting nets to catch mullet, a common catch here along the Crystal Coast in the fall. The Cape Lookout lighthouse can be see in the distant horizon.
The mullet harvest is a long-standing tradition of Bogue Banks and Down East natives. If you’re interested in learning more about this cultural ritual check out the following Coastal Review Online story: “A Sign of Fall: Mullet Fishing on Bogue Banks.” Or, if you’re interested in learning the local way to cook mullet, see “Our Coast’s Food: Charcoal Mullet.”
