Site #10: Little Bullfrog Creek at US 301/Fl 43, S of Tampa

It was a tiny little stream with noticeably warmer water and areas of extremely treacherous footing. Downstream of the bridge the sandy bottom approached quicksand conditions, plunging Mike and several others up to their hips in a flash. After taking turns helping each other back to solid ground, most of the group worked under and upstream of the bridge. Exotics were indeed found there in a list that contained:

Gizzard shad (Dorossoma cepedianum)
Brook silverside (L. sicculus)
Coastal shiner (N. petersoni)
Golden shiner (N. crysoleucas)
Bluegill (L. macrochirus)
Warmouth (L. gulosus)
Hogchoker (T. maculatus)
Weather loach (Misgurnus sp.)
Jewel cichlid (Hemichromis sp.)
At Little Bullfrog Creek, the gang found several exotics including this
weather loach (Misgurnus sp.).
