    I never have but I would like to. I was talking to my buddy who has a place on the Suwannee and he says the river is VERY high right now so I would think trying for them any time soon would not be good but you never know.

    Last March four of us took a trip from GA especially to catch Suwannee bass. The wind blew hard from the south all 3 days we fished. We fished the Wakulla and the Wacissa rivers and yes we all caught Suwannee bass.

    I targeted them for the first time last Friday afternoon with a friend. He's been doing it for years. Really fun to catch and those little buggers pull...Solid little chunks for sure. We brought home 8 and lost and threw back at least that many.

    I've found that when I bass fish the Santa Fe, (river), about half the bass I catch are Suwannee bass. Great fighters..... They seem to like the deep holes and rocks.

    They are cool fish. Closest thing to smallmouths we have.
