Name That Fish

I'm far from a good fish identifier, but my first thought is a huge golden shiner. I'm sure someone will know for sure, tho

Looks like shiner to me. I've caught quite a few of them over the years on North Center through the ice. I would guess all the lakes up there have a healthy population of them.

Golden Shiner, no doubt...must have been eatin good, that one, he looks pretty good sized...bigger then any I've ever caught! I wonder how the thing has evaded the pike and such to get that big? Must have had a secret hiding place, or maybe bad breath?

Holy cow! I should've used it for bait! (Or would it still be considered a legal minnow at that size?)

Darn thing was 8 or 9 inches long.

Thanks for the info.

Mike

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
