Default Where are the bullred schools?

I've got a couple of buddies coming into town tomorrow and I'm taking off work to take them fishing. I would prefer to take them in the upper bays but they are really wanting to catch some bullreds so we will be looking for schooling redsin the lower bay.

Have any of you guys seen any big schools of bullreds lately? I know they school up around deer point and along the beach just east and west of the pass. Where will I most likely be able to find them tomorrow in the late morning and early afternoon?

Thanks

They havent been real consistant yet but they are out there somewhere... I looked yesterday afternoon but I think it was a little choppy. Caught some in the pass on bottom using menhaden. I would start in the gulf run a mile to the west and then look east, if you dont see any birds diving come back and look around Deer point all the way around to the 3 mile bridge.

I haven't been in a month but I saw a few posts of them just outside the pass in the gulf chasing bait.

Look for the birds!

Thanks to everyone that responded. Against my better judgement we are going to fish around the pass as opposed to the upper bays. I guess it's good to get out of my comfort zone every once in a while and accept a challenge. I'll post a report this weekend.

I'll be out tomorrow, feel free to give me a ring on my cell 850-341-9816,
If I see any reds I'll let you know, they are around, but not real thick yet. I've seen only a few schools here and their. I think it's going to be a week or so more and the bay will be full of big reds. Good luck. John

Thank you John. I'll give you a call to see if you've found them or to tell you if I find some. We'll be leaving the ramp about about 9:00 am.

I seen a big school of em just West of the 3 mile bridge last week. I don't get out there much but from what I've heard they've been hit or miss so far this year. Good Luck!

They aren't too thick right now IMOH, I ran out past the mass, east, then west along the beach. Saw a few birds diving but no luck. Went back in the bay and trolled a 25 but never ran into any. I have heard a few stories about them schooled up, so good luck and let us know how it goes.
