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.

I tottally agree with you there. Even if it wasleagal to keep them,I would let most of them go, I just assumed it was another "bull reds are nasty" thing. That's what I get for assuming though...ha!

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

JLMass (11/9/2007)i just dont see a point in killing that many reds also if its legal or not has a big thing to do with it i prefer catch and release let them bigins go to get bigger
Why arent people fussing about the black drum population?

The state record was broken in alabama this year for redfish so there are plenty of redfish being released.
