Default Reds at 3 Mile

Took a friend to three mile this past Friday. He is new to saltwater fishing. We put it at 10pm. The next time we checked the time was 5am. Put in on the Gulf Breeze side and fishing near the hump. I don't think it would have mattered where we were. We saw reds tailing all night. They were hitting our Gulp shrimp about 10 to 20 feet down. Some would hit some free lining cut bait on top. I also trolled in. My friend through the Gulps into lights and caught a few. He could see the reds as we came to the lights. I told him to through the bait in front and let it drift to the fish. I trolled a trough with a trailer hook and caught two reds about 35 inches. We caught 20 bull reds. All were over 31 inches except for two. The beautiful thing was that we only caught four trout. Good luck to everyone.

He is talking about a bridge and the "hump" is the boat lane. The big tall part in the middle.

It was an unusual night. My best night has been 5 bulls max. I think we were over a hole. My friend caught 13 of the 20 (beginners luck). I was casting everywhere. After the first five, I got anxious and want to test other structures. He stayed in the same light and reeled one in after another. I was about 7 lights east of where the bridge hump begins. Right in between both bridges. They should still be there with the weather staying cold. Good luck!

They were right at 27. I caught one by sight casting. It was the smaller of the two. The other was nearshore while trolling a trout. I did not mean to offend anyone. Just wanted to let everyone know that the bulls are still schooling. Get them while they are still here.
