Bull red run

When do the bull reds start running at Jekyll? Man, I hope the noise from the cutting of the Golden Ray doesn’t screw everything up.
i saw the cargo ship cutting was supposed to start October 1st. Boat traffic will probably be a mess. I'd be more concerned with getting in the way of all the workers than the noise. I don't think the big reds care much about anything but eating
 
I skipped about 10 deer season opening months to catch them big reds on the Beaches and Piers...

One opening weekend of deer season, me and my crew caught 60 Bulls in about 12 hours at the Tybee Pier...Northeaster blowing steady 25, waves spraying the rail, and sideways rain squalls.

Fishing fun at it's finest.

Had to go diggin', but it was like this..

I've heard the "crab for bull reds" idea forever, but I have never actually seen one caught that way...You put half a crab out off the beach or pier in my neck of the woods, and it'll be gone almost instantly, eaten by crabs and little fishies.

Fish heads still trying to breathe are the Money Bait on my coast...

Having said that, they'll eat anything when they are hot and heavy...Saw one caught on a piece of Waffle House country fried steak at the Jax Beach Pier once.

True fact...

Folks in south LA swear by "cracked crabs" for redfish bait.

I have caught bulls on crab, live shrimp, dead shrimp, poagies and croakers.
 
I was there last october. They were dumping chunk rock all around the ship to stabilize it.
While we didnt slay them we caught quite a few within site of the ship. We used fresh mullet.
