Joint op with Matt K. who was a gracious host and was kind enough to show us around. Ended up with Greenhead/Yellowfin Shiners, E. Mosquitofish, Bluegill, Redbreast Sunfish, a couple Margined Madtoms, and two new species for myself-Christmas Darters and Rosyface Chubs. Christmas+_1_.JPG

We had to use the seine to bring in the Rosyface's, but we got about a dozen in the end. Christmas+_6_.JPG

It was a pleasure, Tim. Erin and I enjoyed showing you and your girls around some of our waters. Look forward to getting out with you folks again.

I can't believe you all are out wet wading in February :)  It was in the 70's here the past few days, but water temps are still very chilly.  Those fish are beauties!

Great fish.  Looks like a great trip.  It got at least into the 60's here over the weekend, I don't know if it hit the 70's or not, but the water is still cold.

 

Chasmodes, back home (San Antonio, Texas) we used to stop swimming in November and resume swimming in February.

Haha, I was in waders but everyone else wasn't, the water was pretty cold.

All this warm weather in KY has me itching to get out.  Love that Christmas Darter
