NFC: Fw: F chrysotus in Gainesville
As a part of my summer program we do a "community outreach" program
"fishing for success." While cleaning up trash around a pond today in E.
Gainesville in a run down neighborhood I took the opportunity to slip in
I dipped a half dozen F. chrysotus in about a half an hour. Blind slashes
through the heavy vegetation. I'm especially excited about one male and
female that are large (maybe 2.5") and absolutely stunning. A couple
males and a couple juvi/females also. Even the small males have a
red coloration which really sets off their gold flecks. The pond also
contains a few small Gams but not many. This pond was recently planted
bream and bass by the UF. They will be planting catfish soon. I'm told
there quite a few large golden's in this pond. Thought you might be
interested. BTW: The human inhabitants there are a slice of Americana
some folks wouldn't want to risk.
