Re: NFC: RE: RE: buyer for exotics

I got my exotic-fish-o-matic cooker. The 6' long grill on a trailer I can
tote anywhere there is an ERP gathering.....

I am working right now with the Fish and Wildlife people to get their data
on released or known populations of exotics to help out on the leg work of
finding them.

I plan to go out over to the Orlando area the 2nd or 3rd week of March.  I
am expanding my exotic gathering not to just fish, but also removing some
exotic weeds from the waterways as well. Maybe gather some hydrilla and
garbage bag it to the landfill to rot and die.  Make it a 2 way effort......

Will be announcing a gathering place to launch from and the list of places
we are going to hit.

I should have my portable barrel system to keep fish alive in all weekend.
Maybe 120 gallons or such.

Anyway..... if anyone is interested.... Jim & Doug  (hint hint) speak up!
Lets make something of this and remove some fish from our water....

Interesting enough I had a meeting with the people that make SONAR aquatic
herbicide today.... in California, if they find a trace of hydrilla they
nuke the place with Sonar for at least 1000' around the found source to make
sure it is gone.... Those are some people that want the exotics gone. Unlike
some or most of our Florida waterways where you have to pray for divine
intervention to get the hydrilla out!  Well lets maybe answer a few prayers
and pitch in and help remove some! (and get some cool fish at the same
