Default Bull Reds~!

Need a little help with targeting Bull Reds....Any of you experienced anglers willing to share some tips for targeting these tough fighters from the beach. How far out should I be trying to cast my baits? What are the top bait choices and what is the best time of day or is night better? I will be fishing in Destin if that makes any difference!

i"ve caught a few bulls and they have all either been on shrimp or manhaden. it"s not really about distance but depth. if you can find a deep gut close to shore fish that. all my bulls were in the middle of the day but i"ve seen posts on here with guys catching them at night too. i fish off of pcola beach but i imagine destin would be similiar. good luck and tight lines.

I have caught a big bull at 11 at night throwing gulp shrimp on a 3/8oz red jig head. Caught it on the Okaloosa side of Destin pass right infront of the bridge. Also had a huge one on in the surf on a pin fish. The same day had one swim by my legs that prob 40 plus.

I have caught one on a gulp sand flea, curley tail grubs,a kastmaster,a west coast surface iron, orange fish-bites and shrimp. The trick is to have something in the water when they swim by

Good stuff keep it coming... We used to catch them like crazy on gulp shrimp in texas when I would visit my grandparents who winter down in Corpus Christi
