    You need to get down here, southern Louisiana. The reds are here all year long. In the summer they are in the marsh. You fish for them in shallow draft boats in 1 - 3 feet of water. In the winter, when the first fronts come through, you catch them leaving the marsh. Some days you leave them bitting. Limit is 5 under 36 inches. Limit was 50 before Blackened Red Fish. Over 36, limit is one.

    Under 36 inches we call them Rat Reds. Over this we call them Bull Reds. I prefer the Rat Reds because they are so plentiful. Pretty easy to limit out here all year long. Never seen a 50 pounder.
