I have enjoyed reading all the post.....great information!! I mostly freshwater fish but having recently landed my first bull red on a little silver crankbait I have become obsessed with catching my next. I caught this big brute in the mouth of perdido river.....(I sure am going to miss Hurst Hammock)I had no camera or scale in the boat but have taken care of that since. Holding him at my waist his tail was still on the deck of my boat. The best part was that I set out trying to catch one of these giants and pulled it off. Two smaller reds that afternoon one about ten pounds and the other around three plus a nice jackfish and several small bass topped off a perfect solo trip and one I want soon forget. My boat is out of commission at the moment having a new power head installed and complete overhaul but should be ready by christmas. I am so ready to go hunt another big red.....and provide some pics. Well hope to hear from my fellow fisherman.
