Question of the Week – Red Breast Sunfish

Posted by romeethredge on July 10, 2015

Last week I had a photo of a Red Breast Sunfish that we often call Red Belly bream, they are fun to catch and good to eat.

Here’s are comments from Dr. Gary Burtle UGA Scientist,”This is a red breast sunfish.  Note the long black opercular flap.  Some confuse with the long ear sunfish, but that one is not as likely to be red bellied.”

This week I have a photo of a yard ornamental tree and I want you to identify it and tell me what are the problems that folks have with them?

Question of the Week – Stumpknocker

Posted by romeethredge on July 2, 2015

Last week I had a photo of a fish and it was a Stumpknocker aka Green Sunfish. I had several correct answers from folks who know their way around our creeks and rivers.  They pull real well and are good to eat. Here’s another one I caught that day.

Another fish question today. What is this nice catch Daddy made on Spring Creek?

Question of the Week – Goatspur

Posted by romeethredge on June 19, 2015

Last week I had a photo of weed seed. It was from Goatspur or Bristly Starbur among other names, Goathead, etc. It is not as serious a weed problem as it once was but is still a concern in rowcrops.

 

 

This week’s question is about a fish. Can you identify this fish I caught in Spring Creek this morning? Is it good to eat?

It was hot that I swam with the fishes a good bit.
