They're the same species........ a "bull red" is a big redfish. I call anything over about 35" a "bull red". A "slot red" is 20"-28", and a "rat red" is under 20".
Not the ones I eat.sigmanu723 said:i kinda knew that. so all redfish can become a bull red ??
Not according to the column written about bull reds by Chester Moore in the latest issue of TF&G. I thought the same thing til I read the article. Some of the bulls are males, but the really big ones (40+) are the females.HonkyFin said:All the Bulls you catch are females , males get about 28" and thats it.
They usally leave the bays for good when they get 30 " and then its surf zone and offshore living
