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
