Anytime!

I'm always up for some fishing, anytime someone comes out to the DC area just let me know!

The South Florida freshwater/canal trip had long been my dream trip, I got to do it this fall, had a blast!

Added
I added these fish.  The sailfin I'm assuming is Pterygoplichthys disjunctivus, the vermiculated sailfin catfish, and not the common pleco.  Hard to see in the pic, but if I'm wrong I'm sure someone can call me out on that.

Thanks!

Thanks Corey!  I think the taxonomy of sailfin catfish is kind of confusing, I looked into it when I caught the fish but have since thrown up my hands!  I appreciate all the hard work that goes into the life list system.  It's totally awesome though!

 

Ken, I caught it on a nub of nightcrawler wrapped up in some green algae/weed.  The canal I fished was really loaded with them and they were feeding in the shallows trying to access algae near the bank.

There are three species of

There are three species of Sailfin Catfishes established in south Florida.  You need to look at the dorsal and ventral sides of the fish to distinguish the three species. I can see enough of the dorsal side to be pretty sure it is not the Orinoco Saifin Catfish, Pterygoplichthys multiradiatus, but I can't see enough of the ventral side to determine whether it is an Amazon Sailfish Catfish, P. pardalis, or Vermiculatied Sailfin Catfish, P. disjunctivus.  Do you have a picture of the ventral side? The three species also hybridize when together further complicating things.

Where exactly did you catch. Not all three species are have been found in all parts of south Florida yet so we may be able to determine which species it most likely is based on locality.

Thanks!  I caught it on the Tampa Bypass Canal.  I've fished a few canals in South Florida but never saw anything close to the abundance of Sailfin's that I saw in the Tampa Bypass.  They would come into the shallows to graze on algae with their backs out of the water!

 

Here's some more pics...
