Weather was so nice this weekend I decided to take a trip down to Birdsong Conservation area in Missouri and try out my new 5' Nissan Sasuke. Had a great time and managed to catch around 10 fish including a pretty little darter. I can't wait to go back and catch a some more.

Nice catches.

Nice! Micro fishing really is a lot of fun. More people should try it.

Darter ID
by: Jeff D

That's probably an Orangethroat Darter. They are the most common darter in MO. But to really ID darters get a copy of Fishes of Missouri by William L. Pflieger.

Birdsong is one of my favorite places. I'm surprised but pleased to see activity this early.

Alan, I was fishing in the Cannon Branch creek that runs into Branch creek. I was using a little bit of worm on a Gamakatsu Tanago hook.

I carry two Gamakatsu tanago hooks. The one Steve purchased is the Gamakatsu Smallest, not the Gamakatsu Ultimate.
