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

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
