Our trips all start out as a kayak fishing adventure. We usually end up pulling ashore for a little while and exploring. On this trip we found a lot of these fossil clams. Very cool. I dont know much about them just thought i would share.

Any idea as to the deposit you are looking in?

Your specimens look like a specie of Bivalve found in the woodbine.

Nice catfish she got there. Wish my wife would enjoy fishing as much as I do.

Ray Roberts Lake lies a few miles north of Denton Texas. It lies within the outcrop of the Woodbine Formation, Mainstreet Limestone, Grayson Marl, and Denton Clay. Go see North Texas Fossils at http://www.northtexasfossils.com/geologydenton.htm .

I always bring a little fly rod as I hit the creeks. Love the combination of fishing and fossils.

Attractive voracious fish, which invaded our rivers. In France we don't have the right to move it alive, it is an invader.

Really??? That's surprising to hear for a lowly Sunfish

A similar looking sunfish has invaded most streams here in North Carolina- the green sunfish Lepomis cyanellus. It is native to the Mississippi River drainage basin.

Hi,

 

I speak about Lepomis gibbosus but perhaps I have done a mistake, is it really the same fish ?

 

Blatant example of the need to use the Latin names because the vernacular ones change according to countries or even regions !

That is why us country boys use the term "panfish".  I hope that a pan was involved?

Called a Long ear sunfish in these parts and are native to Texas. Lepomis megalotis. The vert in the picture however is from Xyphactinus and the jaw with the other fish mosasaur found in the spot I caught the fish.

Out here We call them "blue gills", but it may be a different species.

One of many species of “blue gills”. I love to fly fish for pan fish on the small creeks I hunt.

Bluegill, green sunfish, pumpkinseeds, longears... they're all great fun to catch.

 

@Coco they're good eating, although you need a fair few to make a meal. But the good thing about them being invasive is there is no size or bag limit so ya take em all!

 

Guys, you know when you see the small creeks or pools and you can see the panfish in them? Go to Walmart and grab a couple of "bitsy minnows" in the lure section. I bought like 15 to bring home to Aus for our native grunters. They work a treat on the sunnies and it was very enjoyable.
