Tagging your Photos

I am in the process of tagging all my photos.Gonna be time consuming . I would like to be able to search a specific species of fish pictured on this great site and compare photos. I only have 4 photos up so far of Red Breasted Sunfish but would like to see others . I plan to complete this obsession!Hoping to ease the search of specific interests as they change from day to day, season to season.

Hey People -Wanted to tell you all that the Green Sunfish and the Warmouth are both considered 'potentially dangerous' species in New Jersey.Was reading through the 2010 New Jersey Fish and Wildlife Digest and these two'criminals' were listed along with 8 others.According to the state because of their bigmouths they are too competitive to the other smaller mouthed native Sunfishes like Blue gills and Sunfish.The state wants anglers to kill these fish and send specimens into their…
