NANFA-- Minnow trap in peat lake
Sun, 10 Sep 2000 14:08:29 EDT

I checked my minnow trap this morning and I had about eight specimens of
Banded sunfish Enneacanthus obesus. These have so many blue spots on them
they may be a natural cross between E. obesus and E. gloriosus. The lake also
contains Elassoma boehikei or Elassoma okatie. They are small and probably
swim through the mesh of the trap. I only have one specimen and I am not sure
which it is but it came from that lake. As far as I have been able to tell
those are the only two fish species in the lake, I have some very small hooks
I plan to use to see if I can catch some bigger fish at a later date. BTW
it's obvious we all share a great distaste for environmental degradation so
we are all preaching to the choir ;)
