Default Are the "bulls" running yet?

I saw the article in the PNJ yesterday about the bull redfish run in the fall. I have a Mississippi that wants to come down and give it a try. I'd hate for him to come down if the run hasn't begun yet. Can anyone tell me if they have begun catching the bulls yet?


Thanks.

Bull reds are caught year round here but I would not say the "run" has started yet but it is coming on us

I have not seen it really fire up yet, but my knowledge is limited. I did see an unusually large wad of boats anchored or spot-locked in the Bay just off Pickens beach area on Sunday; saw one person catch a large red. Typically when there is an armada of boats gathered in one place in the bay it's because a school of bulls was sighted, so I'm guessing Cody&Ryan is right ... it shouldn't be long.

The 'run' can be fickle, I wouldn't plan a trip around that - just shoot for nice weather, the reds are around, just a matter of fishing for them.

FisherRed, the article came out in Tuesday's PNJ.



I sent a link to my MS friend and he said he wants to come down. As I said, I want to be reasonably assured that the bulls are schooling before he makes the trek down here.


Thanks for the update, guys. For now I'll tell him to hold off coming down. If anyone hears of schooling activity I would appreciate an update.

They are out there. My client caught two nice ones on Thursday in the pass. Both revived and released, of course.

Did you get the reds chasing birds, trolling or bait fishing?

Thanks.

Default Reds

Cut menhaden on the bottom with large spinning tackle. I have not seen them school on top yet, but I have seen them schooling in shallow water. Just not up top quite yet. Any day now.

My goodness. On a fly rod? I can't imagine or that has got to be one kind of fly rod I've never seen!
