I suggest you get fresh popeye mullet which is available now, scale/fillet it and salt it now. It will store in the frig well for months. Lots of folks salt mullet and it stays on the hook well and catches fish fine.
You could probably do it on the ferry frozen finger mullet, but if that's your only option then I'd just use if thawed out, no need to salt at that point.
