Reminds me of an 'Orangefin Shiner'  (Great live bait for northern pike)

Looks like a golden shiner. A lot of lakes by me are full of them.

What gets my attention is that retro fly rod.  Is that an old Fenwick?  Really neat to see.

Yep, old 7' Fenwick, reel is a Pfleuger Medalist. I also have a 7'6" Browning Silaflex and another Medalist. Was given to me by a family friend. Never realized how lucky I was until i started fishing more often.

              Your shiner piqued my curiosity   :headscratch:

                             ORANGEFIN SHINER

It's not an 'Orangefin Shiner' (A shiner I've used in the St Lawrence River)

                                                               SPOTFIN SHINER

                                                           (Notropis ammophilus)

                You might be right, it may be a 'Spotfin Shiner' (Notropis ammophilus)

From what I can find, spotfin shiners rarely grow longer than 2-4 inches, so that pretty much rules that out. That's makes sense though, since what you caught is a golden shiner.

Thats an adult golden  shiner.

I use to catch them all the time in the pond behind my parent's house when  I  was  younger.  Usually  caught  them on live worms while fishing  for bluegills  and red ears.

They usually  travel in schools  so if you  caught  one, you would  end up catching  several  more.

Most times, golden shiners get introduced  into new waters after  people  fish and have "minnows" left over. They end up pouring  the leftover  bait  into the water.

Are you guys sure this isn't a European Rudd?  Notice the Red fin.  For me, it is hard to tell the difference between the species.

Lol is the savage 3D shine glide, pretty inexpensive as far as glides go, really fun to fish!

Probably my favorite glide bait I own. I fish it way more than I fish my Dep's :lol:
