I'd say he's somewhere in the 18-20 lb. range. Congrats on your first bull.

Nice catch man, way to go!!! Yeah, bulls reds between 40-45inches are usually 20-25lbs. What kind of gear did you get him on, light tackle?

nope didnt have light tackle . after having my lines breaking and spooled out 100 + times i halled my butt to gulf brezz tackle shop the owner i think it was hooked me up good with a new tekota 600 reel spooled it with 300 yards of 50lbs power pro and top shot it with 50lbs mono that fish didnt stand a chance with that reel but that 7.6 rod i had it on feel like it was going to break so i got a 9ft one today just going to use that set up to red bull fish and hope i catch a big black drum too
