Match the Hatch (part one)



So...we spend many hours exploring the indian river lagoon system:
visually, seine netting, fishing, cast netting, snorkeling, traps and any other way we can obtain specimens.



i was thinking i would put pictures of what we find on the flats in hopes that later we can try to match baits and flies to some of the species.

i don't kill many redfish, snook or trout but i'm curious how many of the following species you have found in the bellies of flats predators.

if you have any species to add to the list please feel free.

this is just a fun discovery post for my son and i.

15 is a giant amphipod. Man that sucker is big!

That black and yellow puffer is awesome too!

Also, pipefish are the coolest. Very difficult fish to keep in captivity. They eat amphipods and copepods and require tons of macro algae to grow the prey they need.

Reminds me of when I was a kid......Low tide, a 10 gallon tank and a 4 ft cast net was all I needed for hours of enjoyment!

funny...we keep a 10 gallon aquarium on the dock. Alden keeps pipefish, sea horses, fish, etc. for a day or two then they go home.

I would imagine redfish eat a lot of pipefish because of their abundance and slow mobility. Can anyone confirm?

I'm sure they do, they will eat just about anything that moves and fits in their mouth.

Pipes are great at camo though, you never know. Its easy enough for my fly to hide from them!

Thanks for the ID on the Sand Worm (41) I have these suckers in my nanocube. I saw Dune so I guess I better get rid of them before they get too big or learn to ride one of those monsters
