    Wild Sailfin Mollies

    I recently read that inland waters near me in central Florida are supposed to be inhabited by wild sailfin mollies! (Poecilia latipinna) I've never seen them in the cold-water spring-fed rivers that I normally visit, so I assume that they are probably in the warmer rivers and lakes. I'm in west central Florida, and I'm thinking that the Withlacoochee River is my best chance here of finding them. I remember throwing a bait trap in there a few years ago and coming home with a bunch of cool little banded minnows (Fundulus lineolatus?) but not mollies. I'm sure I'll have to wait until spring before they will be near the shore where I can trap them, but I'm excited about potentially obtaining wild specimens of my own. Anyone have any thoughts?

    There are two kinds of error: blind credulity and piecemeal criticism. Never believe a word without putting its truth to the test; discernment does not grow in laziness; and this faculty of discernment is indispensable to the Seeker. Sound skepticism is the necessary condition for good discernment; but piecemeal criticism is an error.
