Catching two fish on one dual-treble plug at the same time is an unusual and randomly occurring fishing phenomenon, but this week a South Florida teen caught two species of bass on a single swimming bait while fishing at a neighborhood canal.


 The S. Florida Sun-Sentinel reports today that Luke Volpe, 13, of Southwest Ranches, hooked a 1.5-pound peacock bass on the front treble hook of his bait, and as he was reeling it in, a 5-pound largemouth hit the rear treble hook.

The newspaper story noted that Volpe was using a spinning rig with 20-pound braided line and a Yo-Zuri swimming plug.

Both fish were released after the teen’s fishing buddy, Dalton Edens, snapped some photos with his cell phone. 

Pretty cool, huh?
