On behalf of TPWD's Coastal Fisheries Division I want to say thanks to everyone who helped in this effort and especially to Mark for coordinating the volunteer effort. Though we didn't catch as many bull reds as we would have liked (or that SeaCenter could have used) those that were collected will certainly help in our efforts to replace brood fish lost during hurricane Rita.

We realized this was early in the season for the big drum run but staff field sampling responsibilities increase dramatically from September through November and man-hours become very limited. We'll look at schedules later in the fall and see if there is another opportunity for a collecting trip. I know SeaCenter would welcome a couple of dozen 34+ inch red drum.

Thanks again for your help and interest in supporting Texas' fisheries.
