Waste Not β˜€οΈπŸŽ„πŸ’ͺThe FWC received 47 Christmas trees donated by a Lowe’s store in Jacksonville. Staff made good use of them by placing 34 trees in the Bethesda Fish Management Area (FMA) pond-- 31 of them below the large concrete pier and another 3 below the wooden pier on the eastern side of the pond. The trees provide good fish habitat and should draw more fish closer to the fishing piers. Anglers fishing at the Bethesda FMA should try dropping their line off the front of the pier to target any fishing hiding in the trees! The remaining 13 trees will be placed under the fishing pier at the Oceanway Pond Fish Management Area soon. #fwc #lovefl #videooftheday #biologist #biology #fishing #fisheries #fisheriesmanagement #recycle #reuse #biologistlife #workhard #nature

Exciting Eels πŸ€“πŸ™ŒπŸ‘€ FWC biologists installed eel traps designed to collect young-of-year eels, but came across this adult American eel where the freshwater outflows from Lake Martin! American eels are found in waters with coastal access along the Atlantic Seaboard of the U.S. Adult American eels migrate to the ocean to spawn and the larvae drift with the current to nearby freshwater rivers where they keep growing and continue their migration upstream. The state record for the American eel is a 60-inch long male, weighing about 16 pounds! #fwc #eel #americaneel #outdoorlife #fisheries #fishing #picoftheday #lakemartin #lovefl #freshwaterfishing #floridafreshwater #surprise #biology

Strange Sight πŸ‘€πŸ€“πŸ“Έ Have you ever seen FWC biologists electrofishing on your local waterbody? FWC biologists often use electrofishing techniques to assess freshwater fish populations. Electrofishing poles, called booms (seen hanging off the front of the boat), send a temporary electrical field into the water to stun fish that swim within a 6-8 foot radius of the booms. The biologists then net the fish, take their measurements and weight, and release them back into the waterbody unharmed. Electrofishing is not harmful to the fish, habitat or humans. #FWC #electrofishing #biology #fisheriesresearch #Floridajobs #fisheries #floridafishing #freshwaterfishing #picoftheday #fishflorida #faq

Shocking Shellcracker πŸŸπŸ‘€πŸ˜FWC biologists recently sampled Lake Istokpoga and collected (and released) this massive shellcracker! Redear sunfish prefer to eat snails and clams, which is where it's common name, shellcracker, comes from! The state record shellcracker was caught in Merritts Mill Pond in 1986 and weighed in at 4.86 pounds. #fwc #fishing #fisheries #fishflorida #picoftheday #biologist #lakeistokpoga #lovefl #anglers #freshwaterfishing #shellcracker #redear

New Friend! πŸ˜πŸπŸ‘ Fisheries biologists were pleasantly surprised when this bright new friend decided to join them while sampling! The rough green snake is native to Florida and spends most of its time in trees feeding on insects and the occasional tree frog. This species of snake is non-venomous and harmless to humans. Because of their love for the trees, they are often found in densely vegetated areas, around the edges of fields and shorelines. #fwc #fisheries #biologistlife #greensnake #snakesofinstagram #snake #outdoorlife #lovefl #picoftheday #surprise #newfriends

Toadfish Tuesday πŸŸπŸ‘€πŸ€“ Toadally adorable (and feisty!), the aptly named toadfish are voracious carnivores and sometimes bite when touched. Male toadfish have specialized swim bladder muscles that are used to produce mating calls, but most toadfish can produce audible grunting or croaking sounds. The toadfish pictured here are Gulf toadfish found in the springs connected to the Gulf of Mexico! #fwc #fisheries #fisheriesmanagement #toadfish #springs #lovefl #outdoorlife #fishing #biologistlife #picoftheday #biologist

Setting the Scene πŸ˜ŽπŸ“Έβ˜€οΈThe Suwannee River is a beautiful sight to see and the fishing is great! The Lower Suwannee River's tidal creeks corral panfish into deeper holes at low tide. Locate these holes, typically on outside bends of the channel, and use small spinners tipped with shrimp. Because of the water temperature and tidal influence, saltwater fish species such as Red Drum utilize more of the river during this season. Bounce fresh shrimp with lead head jigs just over the oyster shell covered bottoms for success! #fwc #fishing #anglerlife #fishingtips #suwanneeriver #naturephotography #nature #outdoorlife #weekendfun #panfish #riverfishing #lovefl
