“Bull” Red’s in Houma


We know that one of the biggest requests we receive from traveling anglers here in Louisiana is an opportunity to catch the famous Bull Red. Houma is home to an active Bull redfish population (a “bull” red is officially a redfish over 27 inches), and these guys can reach into the 35+” range during certain times of the year.
