Default Fresh water Flounder

Nice sized fish! Are these local? I didn't know there were armored cats this far north.

Nice haul of fish.

That armored catfish was probably someone's pet fish in an aquarium and they let go in the river for whatever reason. If I had to guess, I'd say it was let go in the river because it outgrew it's aquarium.

They are all over the canals in South Florida. There's One Canal near Sun life stadium that's loaded with them.
