 in your neck of the woods he has some great collecting locals he'd be
 happy to share.....>>

Yes, Hightower is a beauty.  There are a few more nice springs on the Holmes
Creek drainage there in Washington and Holmes county.  However,
_Pteronotropis welaka_ is not as abundant there as they use to be.

 freshwater collecting regulations so the resort to baitlaw wich allows
 you to collect minnows and the like without a license with a limit of
 250 per day I will however get an official opinion !! >>

Please do get that official opinion.  I have been told several variants of
the law and after 5-years of asking, I still have not received my FREE
Florida game laws book.  If you can get your hands on one, please get on for
me too.
