Today I went to the baitshop and bought some fatheads to test ship, I got the idea from teleost I think. Anyway, I did up two different bags. One bag is a breather bag with two fish, the other a standard fish transport bag with a single fish. Both are in small shipping boxes and stuffed with newspaper. I used the water that came with them when I bought them and added Ammo-Lock. I'll open them up on Friday and see if they are still alive. Wish me luck, hopefully it will work and I'll be able to share my natives with those who have shared their's as well as trade with others.

Alright, I checked both boxes on Friday and...all the fish were alive! Not as difficult as I thougnt apperantly. If anyone needs any native New Yorkers let me know.

what kind of fish do you commonly encounter (I'm looking for darters and/or interesting minnows)?

hmm, I dont get out often collecting, but I love our native fish, I an intrested in colorfull minnows..

My dad once brought hom some smaller minnows, the males had yellow bellies.. But i'm still not sure what they were, they were used as bait on one of his "father/son" fishing trips so I couldent keep any.. *grumbles*

I am on the same page as Katie here. I love collecting different types of minnows.
