Our Red Drum Had A Music Note Spot
Bull Reds are one of my favorite fish to catch for several reasons. They pull tremendous drag and are super powerful. Another reason is because every spot on every fish is unique & different. This drum had a music note on his tail. I have seen people catch them with hearts on their tails.
Bait For Big Bull Reds
When #TeamDorsal goes fishing for drums we like using either cut mullet/ladyfish or we will use live blue crabs. Cut shrimp also works I like buying the colossal size ones from Wal-mart. They stay on a hook good and you can get 2 cast per shrimp by cutting them in halves. When fishing with live blue crabs we use 40lb #bullbuster mono as our leader material with a 6/0 circle hook & 4oz pyramid weight.
Our Idea Of Self Quarantine
When a bull red hits a bait they don't mess around / they grab it and start yanking line out!!!! You want to make sure you drag is set correctly. Too loose and the circle hook wont set right. Too tight and the hook will pull or they will drag your rod in the water!! Circle hooks are key to a successful catch and release when targeting bull reds. We prefer using 30lb+ bullbuster braid on 5000 size reels. The heavier duty line helps you get the fish in & have a faster release rate. Redfish can also be found up in grassy flats and marshes. The world-record redfish is 94 lbs caught off Hatteras, North Carolina in 1984. The fly caught record is 43lbs caught in Florida’s Banana River Lagoon in 1995. In the 1980s, a decline in redfish populations was blamed on Paul Prudhomme, who had popularized blackened redfish as table fare. With new regulations in effect our numbers have grown substantially and we now have healthy populations. With the United States on high alert right now due to COVID-19 we have been staying away from crowded beach areas. We like to find new places off the beaten path & the fishing has been great! Get out there and enjoy time with your loved ones.
