Hello from Germany

I did a lot of crayfish work in about 30 states and now i would like to get involved in the fish as well.
What would be the best places to go to shoot Shiners and Darters in May ?
Attached some pics i did about 1 year ago in FL

M. Wolfe and forum tenders... why can i NOT see Chris's pictures when i am logged in, but when i sign out i can?
I have spoken of this oddity before.

I can't see Chris' pics when logged in either. Bonus for the nonmember crowd, though!

First, there is a club based in the Triad (three cities: Greensboro, High Point, Winston-Salem) called Aquarium Enthusiasts of Triad, NC. We have several members interesting in going out sampling together as a group sometime soon. I'm an admin and can organize a group outing if you tell me which day you'll be in the area.
A second group based in Charlotte is called the Charlotte Area Aquarists Society. They are going out collecting on Saturday, April 5th.
CAAS outing info:
"Saturday, April 5 at 10:00am. Paid Members of CAAS and potential new members are welcome to come join us at our Collecting trip this April 5. If your not a member yet your missing out check out Aquacharlotte.org for more information!"
They expect to see a total of 37 species. Juan Damelines is the contact person, and there is an event page on facebook.
A third group is based in Raleigh, and is called the Raleigh Aquarium Society. Gerald Pottern is a member and a good person to talk to about their activities. They have an upcoming event April 15-19th: http://forum.nanfa.o...apr-15-19-2014/

I see that crayfish species often in the FL springs. I've always thought they are nicely patterned. Procambarus spiculifer is what I came up with, though I'm no crayfish expert.
I don't know what species of plant that is, but I think I recognize that exact spot. Parts of Ichetucknee were like a lush underwater rainforest.

If/when you get it figured out, include me in the fix!
I know you mentioned this attachment viewing problem once before, but I don't think I have ever seen it before (at least not to this extent). I cannot see the pictures either. And no, I dont have an idea at this point. I will ask Sajjad for his opinion and I will look via the admin site and see if I can figure something out.

I've collected with Bjoern Loerper and Joerg Bohlen when they were visiting NC in the 90's. I'm in the Neuse River basin (near Raleigh, east-central NC). The Roanoke, Tar River and Cape Fear basins are all within 1 hr drive from here, and each has its own interesting fish & crayfish.
Here's a fish species list by river basin for NC:

I am afraid that i can´t visit the Nanfa Conference because i booked the flights already. Also there is the most important pet fair in Germany May 29-June 3 and i have to give some presentations there.I could come next year.
Gerald,i did some crayfish work in the Neuse River Basin some years ago ..maybe i will come there this year also,depends on how the photographing in TN and KY goes
