You picked a good week to NOT be in NC ... looks like fun!   Re: Redeye chub, what are the distinguishing features in that photo?  To me it looks like it could be any of several other possible shiners: Dusky, Coastal, female Metallic/Sailfin ... ??

Haha yeah but even down here it's getting cold now. 47 is the high for tomorrow. The Redeye Chub, hmmmm....that one was a pain to ID. Fritz commented that he agreed some were Redeye Chubs from the post yesterday. I thought he was referring to this picture, so I may be wrong on the id with this particular fish. They are very hard to tell apart however. Redeye Chubs have a yellow streak just above the lateral line that I observed on a few of the fish yesterday. Might need some local help to untangle this mess haha.

Awesome photos man, super jealous. I'm going to have to head down there too, can't let your species count get too much higher than mine, it wouldn't be right!

Haha, yeah Florida has been great so far. Coming back in February for a trip to the Everglades for exotics, you think you can take some time off? I have some great locations from a local fishhead I traded some locations for.

Thanks for sharing!  I'm glad that you had a productive fishing trip and I enjoyed seeing these familiar 'faces".  I have kept many of these fish and look forward to working with many of the rest (especially the diamond and marsh killifish).

 

I am not asking for a specific location(s), but can you share what general city or area where you caught the bluenose shiner?  TIA

 

I look forward to seeing what you discover in the Everglades!

Not a problem Matt, glad you and the guys enjoyed them. Had a great trip so far, extending it a week now and hitting up the Everglades for exotics.

I got lucky with the Marsh Killi and Diamond Killi but have that spot if you want too?

Last pic with the Redeye Chub, after further review, female weleka. Hard to tell these fish apart in tannic water.

wonderful!  Was this site inland, or was it brackish?

This site was inland, but I did fish a lot of brackish water.

Well I ended staying a few extra days in Florida since the weather was so nice. Ended up with 40 species total, 20 lifers. Red Drum was the last fish of the trip.
