they top out around 1 1/4" . They are great little nano fish. Here's a pic of an elassoma gilberti that we caught northwest of panama city beach back in april.

I checked my field guide and it looks like there is one species that is in range in western TN, elassoma zonatum (banded pygmy sunfish) not quite as colorful but still a nice fish in its own right.

Make time . Going again in the morning after I get off work. Have a new net in the arsenal and can't wait to try it. Took a 30" diameter metal ring, attached a seine net to it and added a rope, so now its a dip net on a rope. I think it'll be really effective, there's a company that makes them but I couldn't see myself forking out 50 bucks for it.

I dont think we are allowed to collect native fish here.

Doubt they have places like that here in NJ. But man, awesome. did you keep the blue spotted sunfish? That flounder thing looked cool too. How big do these get (flounder and sunfish)?
