Had a three day charter with three very nice people from New Jersey and they came to Venice to catch large Bull reds. They names were Bob Wolfskeil - Joe Sbmbk - and Joe Rodriguez from New Jersey. We fished Tuesday Wednesday, and Thursday of this week- right before a good sized cold front came thru. Each day we fished a different location in the Mississippi river delta. The first day we caught 25 large bull Reds-The second day we changed locations and caught 59 large bull Reds and the third day -because of the wind direction we could not fish the same locations- so we moved 20 miles to the North of the area we fished the first two days. The bite was about the same as the first day the Reds average size was larger- in the 20 to 30 lb range and they caught 26 the last day for a total of 110 large bulls for three days. They returned to New Jersey Happy.

Paul Fecteau and his thirteen year old son-Grant-had a three day charter fishing trip planed for July 1, 2, and 3rd. We fish the first two days and the last day was canceled because of bad weather. The first day we caught lots of sloth red fish- arond thirty and kept the limit. We also caught one spec,a 22 lb Black drum - caught by Grant- and Paul caught a large Bull red--we were fishing at some oil rigs in 20 feet of water. The second day we fished for Bull reds early in the morning on a sandy beach in clear water. Grant caught eight large Bull reds--the largest being 25 lbs and Paul caught one Bull red and another large fish that piled all of his line off the reel and then broke it. I believe it was a large Jack. We then headed back in to the same spot we fished the day before and caught a limit of sloth red fish .They enjoyed both days and were from Denver, Colorado.
