Story: I chartered with Bourgeois Fishing Charters in Barataria, La.. Theoplile Bourgeois flew us out in his seaplane to the Chandelier Islands in the Gulf of Mexico. Mullet were running so thick it looked like you could walk on top of them. Five minutes after landing, this bull red hit and the fight was on! He put up a great fight and I managed to keep my cigar firmly in place. It was a great trip, excellent guide/pilot and had wonderful friends to share the moment!
