Can Anyone Identify This Fish?

Recommended Posts

To me it looks like a shiner of some sort, i caught a bunch of them on trout spinners in the Pemigewassett  River in Plymouth NH. If anyone has any ideas I would be curious to know!

Gizzard shad has a black dot behind the gill plate.   Might be an American Shad.

I call those river minnows or dace. I have caught big ones close to a pound.

Thanks for the feedback guys I appreciate it. I caught it in fast moving water near a lot of logs and wooden debris.

Yep, it's definitely a chub of some sort, which are nice looking fish. Gizzard shad are oval shaped and grotesque looking in comparison.

Creek chub. I catch them all the time in my creek.

Sure looks like a fallfish to me.  It's a type of chub, and the bane of many a flyfisherman who are after trout.  :-)

 

Tight lines,

Fall fish I catch them in the river by my house they get pretty big and fight pretty hard. They also bite in winter so it's fun when ur not catching any thing

Fallfish, creek chubs often have a black stripe down the sides, similar to a largemouth bass, and they have much smaller scales when they're that size.

What else am I supposed to do Jan-Feb when the water is hovering just above freezing and the rivers have chunks of ice floating around in them?  :D

I caught some big ones (my first) up on Upper Saranac this past summer.

I believe his name is Bob, although he prefers to by his birth name of Roberto...
