Bull reds are redfish that are longer than 27" in length. Surprisingly, they are called bull reds but most that grow to that size are female. Apart from their size, bull reds still share the same coppery-brown and red coloring and signature black dots of redfish. Over time as they mature, their scales harden into tough armor and their mouths assume an appearance similar to those of carp. They grow aggressive with age, and they use the strength of the current and their mass to their advantage while hunting for food and fighting on the end of a line. Bull reds are not usually sought after to consume because their fillets turn from refined to tough with the passage of time. Due to their size, bull reds are most often found offshore in deeper water but return to shallow estuaries during spawning season.
Fighting and landing a big bull redfish is an experience you will not soon forget; they are known for their drag-ripping ferocity.
