Fish identification help! Need experts!

Recommended Posts

Hi! This fish is from southern Ontario, possibly a Golden Shiner. I need help identifying it but I’m stuck! Would any of you fish experts know? It’s a cold water fish!

I'm thinking maybe a silver shiner. It doesn't look like a golden shiner at all to me.

It’s an emerald shiner, Simcoe is full of them and that’s the number 1 bait minnow that’s sold in the Simcoe area for ice fishing bait. The smaller ones are called pinheads and work great for spring perch.
