What Type of Forage Species is This?

Recommended Posts

I've been getting suckers and scuplins in my minnow traps lately.  Pulled up one of my traps today and found these two mystery fish inside.  They look like a mix between a bowfin/sucker.  They are not bowfin, burbot, or snakehead though because the dorsal fin on top of their back is short and doesn't connect the whole length of their upper back.  The caudal (tail) fin is interesting because it's not forked, but more of a rounded shape.  I don't know.  They're sitting in my baitfish storage at the moment.  I'll update this thread if I can find out more details.  Thanks for any help or information.  Oh just a heads up, these were pulled from the northern Upper Peninsula in Michigan.


*Edit* It looks like it's a Central Mudminnow.  Thanks Turtle135.
