Thumbs up Baby plecos, crayfish and 2 spot tetra i caught in a lake a few miles away..

well guys last weekend i suggested to my brother we go down to the lake and see what small fish and and crustatians we can can catch without using hooks.. so we used hand nets and we used a fine mesh net troll around the brush that was in the water and were suprised at what we caught! we got baby plecos and alot of crayfish..as well as a few 2 spot tetras..we threw back a few of the plecos beacuse they were so tiny..we kept 3 of the bigger ones.. they sell these plecos in pet stores..lol..but i can go to the lake and catch as many as i like..;P
