Legacy Elementary School Fishes, May 19, 2011


Fifth Graders had fun fishing.

Green sunfish
are fun to catch.

Bluegill
are found in more locations of Alabama than any other fish.  They are also the largest sunfish species.

Students learn a lot for themselves when given an opportunity to learn hands-on.


Bluegill have lots of colors on their skin.


Catching fish of any size is fun.

Catching a green sunfish can bring a big smile.

The help of parents was greatly appreciated.

Good job, guys, a double.

The Principal of Legacy Elementary School made the most of her time by interacting with her students.


Keith Trawick spent a lot of time organizing the event. It was well worthwhile.


This bluegill with its more pastel colors is probably a female.


This bluegill with its coppery color is probably a male.


Bluegill
eat insects, worms and algae.

Green sunfish
 will eat most anything.

A largemouth bass was caught at the beginning of the day and at the end of the day.

Some students learned to hold the fish without getting stuck by the spines.

Some of the faculty thought students should not be the only ones to have fun.

Thanks, Larry for your help. Good luck in the Collegiant Regional Tournament on May 20 and 21, 2011.

See Huntsville Times pictures. too.
