Is there a regular pattern that Reds follow throughout the year?
When are the in the river mouth, bay, and gulf?

Back when you could drive on Alabama beaches, in late October we'd drive out on the peninsula at Ft Morgan, and catch 50-60 lb Bull Reds on their migration West. We'd use a whole fillet side of gulf mullet for bait. we'd have about 12-15 surf rods out, and when a school of reds came by, they'd hit every bait. we'd land about 1 or 2 on each run.

Red fish are all the way to the edge. They go where they want. Usually smaller ones stay inshore. Water temps seem to drive them, Cold water , they move towards gulf.

50-60lb redfish? You know the state record is 45lbs right?

if your just inshore the slot to just over slots will move farther in to the mud bottoms to stay warm. the bulls will be around the pass to like was stated before all the way out to the edge and around structures like rigs and reefs
