Today I went out with my cast net to the scioto river below Griggs damn in Franklin county (cols). When i first cast out, the part of the river was very fast flowing, and I cought nothing with my cast net, so i moved to a slower bay area. Looking for shad, i cast out and when it hit the bottom i brought it up. These browish, skinny fish were all over my net:confused2:. They have a sucker-ish mouth so id think they were creek chub or something. they were an average of about 2-3 inches long and if they are probobly creek chub i guess ill use em above the damn for channels :cool2:. So if you have any idea tell me sorry i have no pic. they looked like a baby carp but not as round. if you post a pic of what u think it is ill tell ya :)

Well that is a Creek Chub around here, some are darker and this time of year some are light in color, and I have caught then well over 5-6 inches for bait? Here is another pic of one from here. All be it either one would be great bait I'm sure...

There are any number of different spieces of suckers in Ohio streams ... I would be inclined to think it was one of them, a young from last year. They would be about the size you indicated. .... Garry-

thanks for all the replies... i took one live in a fish tank to study it and the top half of the fish is much darker than the top, and it has more of a sucker mouth when it opens it and when its closed it look like more of a mouth of a shad its kinda wierd lol. it sound like what pshykomekanic said. you have a pic.

If you are going to be using your cast net very mcuh you might want to invest in a Fish Identification Book of Fresh water fishes. .... Just a thought .... Garry-:cool2:
