    Glad you guys like them!

    I don't know about the rest of Florida, but the rain is finally starting to slow down here. Only a few showers in the last 2 days.

    As for the lighting, we went out on one of the sunnier days. No flash involved. Ended up getting a minor sunburn!

    For size I'd say the brim are somewhere in the 3-4" range, those big talapias were around 7-8", the large mouths were probably around a foot and the big peacocks had to be at least a foot and a half! The peacocks are the biggest thing in there with the exception of the spotted catfish but we haven't seen any catfish in 10 years. I've got no idea what happened to the catfish, just seemed to disappear one day.

    Heres a huge peacock I caught in the lake last year, just to give an idea of the size. Don't worry fish sympathizers, he was released. I don't eat freshwater fish!

    Quite the contrary.

    Any excess of darkness in the photos was a result of editing. The problem was most of them turned out too light!

    Nice underwater photos! That is cool.


    keeping an eye on the Brim
    FYI...its spelled "bream". I don't think I have ever seen anyone spell it right. lol
