Hi Doug & other interested parties

I hope you can make it. I am not the best at identification, but I have
collected redfin pickerel, fundulus olivaceous, at least 3 different kinds
of chubs, as well as some shiners that look like silverjaws and a variety
of sunfish & darters from this site. In both cases I was collecting alone,
so I'm sure a group effort would bring in much better samples. Just from
looking at distribution maps of the area I see that there should also be
shadow bass and it appears to be on the extreme limits for welaka. (What do
ya' think, BG?). Personally, I would make the trip just for those nasty
pickerel. (-:

As for the trip mileage, the closest town is Louvale, just a bit closer to
you than Ft. Benning.

am, I would most certainly like to join you.
>According to MapQuest, I'm 299.8 miles from Ft. Benning. (If we round that
up, we could reasonably call that 300 miles.) I'm not sure if I'd head up
there Friday or just leave early-early on Saturday, but I'd certainly stay
over Sat. night in the area, hopefully do some more collecting Sunday
morning, and leave (as late as possible !!!) Sunday afternoon.
