Pinewoods Darter by Tim Aldridge

Common Southeast Darters That Are Hard to Catch

Some of the more common Darters on the east coast are some of the most frustrating to catch. These thirteen micros all inhabit in the same range but live in different habitats.

Blackwater, tannic and muddy streams are difficult to sight fish in but there are treasures below the surface.
