Have recently returned from sight fishing in the marshes of the Mississippi delta for the big Bull reds and black drum. I would recommend anyone wanting some visual fishing for large fish to give it a go, they are keen to feed and give great fun on an 8weight rod! The largest red that my friend got was 24lb and the largest black drum I got was over 20lb. I also had a cast at a HUGE redfish that the guide said was well into the 30s. Ill post some pics when I get the hang of it

Sounds fantastic - I look forward to that! It was watching a guy casting fly to redfish in the backwaters of the Florida Gulf Coast near Port Charlotte whilst I was livebaiting for big Snook that prompted me to take up swffing!
