Does anyone know what type of fish this is? My friend caught it in one of the run off ponds we fish for bass in. It looks like a shad to me............. I thought it might be a carp, but it didn't have a carp like lip

Without knowing where you live or if you have these type of fish. It definitely looks like a Golden Shiner. http://www.fcps.edu/islandcreekes/ecology/golden_shiner.htm

One of the best best big bass live bait you can use. These typically cost about $15-$18 per dozen for 6"-10" Wild Golden Shiners. I used to have some spots for cast netting these guys but with the water so low the shiners have moved out until the water comes back up.

Wow I didn't even think of shinners me and my childhood buddy used to cast net them suckers all the time for catfish and pike bait. There all over here in new york some get big like that one along with alewife

Shiner, I've caught some close to a foot long out of ponds on inline spinners and small crankbaits. Great big bass bait.

Shiner.

Used to catch them in Louisiana when I was a kid.

I thought they were extinct since I am so old now. :D:D:D
