I was not sure what this was after we caught it in the lake behind my house in West Park Village. This lake is in the Westchase community Tampa, Florida.

I posted the picture on Facebook and one of my friends commented on the post to link on Yahoo. There seems to be a problem with these fish in Florida. They say the fish lay there eggs off near shore and the holes are sometimes eight feet deep and people are falling into these hole and breaking there legs.
I don’t know about that I just thought it was cool to catch.
We were fishing and I kept walking by this strange rock in the water then on my third pass I decided to get a closer look. This is a Welch Conch. I could not find much information online about this species but a friend of mine from the Bahamas told me what type of Conch it was.
If you are like me you are probably used to seeing the Queen Conch.
