Just got some new natives: A few Bleeding Shiners, 2 Log Perch, 3 Orange throat darters, 1 tadpole madtom, 50 various "bait" minnows to be devoured by the predators. Man I love having a father who is a fisheries biologist. All the free cool fish I want.


I'll get pictures up as soon as they come out of hiding.

Also i got to watch my baby pickerel feed today on a small worm, very cool.

Cool, thats exciting. I just have 5 orange throat darters. Would like to get a few more things later on.
Fantail darters are very cool, in my opinion.


Sweeet more Native Fish Keepers here than i realized :)
My dad actually met an independent stream team here in SE Missouri while taking kids out sampling on the Whitewater River. They were decked out with kayaks, nets, etc., and they all were Native fish collectors. They had no ties to the Conservation Department or DNR, just native fish enthusiasts. Needless to say dad was quite happy to see others taking an active role in our beautiful Missouri natives.
