Blacktail Redhorse, Moxostoma poecilurum

 

The blacktail Redhorse is found in East Texas, Alabama, and the western Panhandle of Florida, and north to Arkansas, Tennessee and northwest Georgia.  It is common in clean warmwater rivers and streams, and grows to about 3 pounds in weight.  Like other redhorses, blacktails will take worms fished on the bottom.  The blacktail redhorse is easy to identify - it has a reddish tail with dark gray or black coloration on the lower lobe of the tail fin.
