What To Catch

Largemouth Bass

The largemouth is an olive green fish, marked by a series of dark, sometimes black blotches forming a jagged horizontal stripe along each flank. The upper jaw of a largemouth bass extends beyond the rear margin of the orbit. In comparison to age, a female bass is larger than a male. The largemouth is the largest of the black basses, reaching a maximum recorded overall length of 29.5 inches and a maximum unofficial weight of 25 pounds, 1 ounce.


Black Crappie

The black crappie has a deep body with nearly symmetrical dorsal and anal fins. The speckled pattern on the body and fins identifies the black crappie. Unlike most other panfish, crappie spend much of their time offshore feeding on small fish in lakes or in large slow-moving clear water rivers. Their primary food items include crustaceans, aquatic insects and small fishes.


Sea Trout

The spotted sea trout has prominent canine teeth. Like other fish of the family Sciaenidae, the spotted sea trout has an elongated soft dorsal fin that has no scales; it is separated form the spinous dorsal fin by a deep notch. It usually has two anal spines and the lateral line extends to the tip of the caudal fin. The back has distinct spots scattered on it, including on the dorsal and caudal fins. Unlike some other members of the family Sciaenidae, the spotted sea trout does not have any chin barbels. In stained water, this fish's background may take on a golden hue. Its shape and coloration is reminiscent of a brown trout. The average size of spotted sea trout is 1-2 pounds, but in most areas fish up to 5 pounds are fairly common. Eight- to 10-pound fish are rare.


Redfish

The Redfish, also known as channel bass, red drum, spot-tail bass or simply Reds, is a game fish that is found in the Atlantic Ocean from Massachusetts to Florida and in the Gulf of Mexico from Florida to Northern Mexico. It is the only species in the genus Sciaenops. Redfish are a dark red color on the back, which fades into white on the belly. The Redfish have a characteristic eyespot near the tail and are somewhat streamlined. Three-year-old Redfish typically weigh 6 to 8 pounds. When they are near or over 27 inches, they are called “bull reds.”
