Redfish and Largemouth Bass?

Every catch a snook and a largemouth on the same trip? How about a redfish and a largemouth? This is a tale of two fish.

In the wintertime here in the Tampa Bay area (and other estuarian systems) there are times - especially in the colder months - when our favorite fish (the snook) goes far up river and often blends - and feeds - alongside the biggest target of all, the largemouth black Florida bass. There are plenty of times, fishing just the right place, we can caught one snook and one bass on two casts using the same red and white Mirrorlure.

Redfish and Largemouth

So when we saw this article about a river in South Carolona called the Waccamaw and how anglers there can target both largemough and redfish at the same time, we thought we had to offer it to you for your reading pleasure. It's a good one. We got the story from The Carolina Sportsman, a super resource for all things fish and game.

Upstream from Georgetown, S.C., the Waccamaw River is home to territory that resembles a largemouth bass hot spot more than a redfish hangout. And that’s fine with guide Rob Beglin of Pawley’s Island, because pulls a page from the Cajun playbook and fish for reds the way freshwater anglers target largemouths.
