I don't know where he was fishing but those are some nice fish (hope it was legal). I don't see why everybody has a problem with eating bull reds. I've had friends bring me some from charters in other states and I got to say they tasted just fine! Not gamey, no worms....but a PINTA to clean with those big scales. I chunkedup the meat, soaked it in butter milk, breaded and fried them up. Tasted great to me.....just my opinion though.
There were several of us and I only fish for the redfish 8 to 10 days a year...I might keep 5 or 6 out of 50 that I catch over a week. Me and some friends usuall split the fillets up amongst ourselves and have a couple of family cookouts from it...not raping the waters here.
I got a question too....What smallredfish am I supposed to keep if the last slot limit redfish I caught was 6 years ago?.....All I catch are bullreds from 36 ro 45 inches
i caught 2 keepers this year in the surf (released) and saw too over 20lbs black drum that is first time i have ever seen them i just like redfish because there the first big fish ( 25in) i ever caught when i was 6 or 7
