my forestry buddy in tates hell forest sent me this about his recent
ive got another fella hooked. :)

I went to the Rainbow river this weekend. It is a spring fed river west of
Ocala. It was the clearest water Ibve ever seen. We canoed upstream to the
headspring, and then jumped in and floated back down for about 2 miles. There
were tons of big bass and bowfin, as well as a bunch of sunfish and other
fish. Some kind of medium sized killifish were spawning. They seemed to be
burying eggs in the sand sort of like California grunion, except they were in
the bottom of the river. They were both buried about B= way, and shaking like
crazy. One 2b long bowfin followed me around for a while. Maybe hebs
fed by divers before. He would let me pet him. You should really plan on
going there sometime.
