Default Winter Fishing for Bull Reds!

I recently joined my buddy, Jeremy Compton, on a two day fishing trip near Bayou Dularge, LA. When we arrived, our guide asked if our objective was a "meat haul." His eyes lit up when we told him we didn't even bring an ice chest, and he asked if we wanted to catch some big bull reds!

We spent the next two mornings battling two dozen bull reds, most of which were 24-29 POUNDS! Here is a short 90 second highlight video I put together from that trip!


It was hard to pare all the footage down to 90(ish) seconds!

Awesome! Sight casting reds is as close to hunting as you can get with a fishing pole in your hand. My favorite fishing for sure!

Nicely done sir! We did this for 3 days straight one time at the Chandeleurs... We stayed after 'em because about every 4 to fifth fish was either a slot red or a big honkin' trout... one of my most favorite fishing trips of my life! My first one on a fly rod there too... Think about those fish on a 9 wt in 18" of water! What a fight! Sure wish I had video of it!

Bout as good as it gets...only thing funner is chasing them in herds & having 3-4 lines zinging & doing the redfish line crossing jig all around the boat.

Michael, on a critical note, the video quality and production was up to par, but I did not enjoy it as much as most of your other work... For my personal liking, it was too short, and didn't tell the story like I bet you could have if you'd not limited yourself to just a short time period. Use more footage and tell the whole story... Cast, strike, fight land, release, high fives... Even your narratives normal in your videos were missing in this one... Just my 2 cents...

Thanks for the feedback, Charlie. I captured A LOT of footage, and I could have (and still may) put together a fully edited story, but I wanted to go ahead and get something short out right now. I'm behind on editing a few other hunting videos. I did a little "horse trading" with the guide for some promotional content, and arranged a return trip in the summer for Jeanette, Mary and Colette to do their annual ladies fishing trip! There will definitely be more to come!

Anybody here having trouble pulling up the link? Apparently multiple people on FB werenít able to go directly to the video. Curious if anybody having same issues here?

We didnít have a ruler to measure length, so just went by weight. What weights are you seeing on 46Ē+? I donít think any of ours were quite that big.

Awesome! Was it nerve-racking orbiting the drone over the boat?
