What did I catch?

3 posts in this topic

I fished the St. Croix for the first time with my 6 year old son this last weekend and caught an oval shaped fish, silver and white in color with large scales.

Not sure what I caught? Whenever I see large scales like this, the first thing I think of is "rough fish", throw it back!

What was it? shocked.gif

gotta fish on,
Sounds like you had a run in with a sheapshead.Very much a rough fish.Alot of them get caught all year around on the river.Don't kill them though.I watched a deal on zebra mussels on Lake Erie and they observed sheapshead eating younger zebra mussels.There are not many zebras in the river yet but they are coming.

Thanks for the info....killing it didn't even enter my mind, my boy likes to release the fish, doesn't matter what kind of fish it is, so he had his fun throwing it back in.
