In unison, three baits were airborne. And just as quickly, a trio of hooked up bull reds broke from an acre-wide pod of fish and headed off in different directions. It took more than 30 minutes, but each was netted, quickly photographed, and then released. This continued for three days, the big bull redfish of Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana, challenging the limits of fishermen and their gear, the rods and reels of the 2016 OL Tackle Test. The battles determined which gear was up to the task. Much to our surprise, a number of never-before-seen, value-priced offerings stood toe-to-toe with much higher priced tackle.
