Ryan, The Mooneye is very similar to the Goldeye, which is also an extremely oily fish, and very good Catfish bait, cut if large, live if in the 3 to 5 inch range. The easiest way to tell the difference between the two is the dorsal. Check the attacment, describes both. An interesting note I read some time back was that in Canada, these fish are netted commercially, smoked and eaten by the folks up there. I met a guy and his wife at the boat ramp, she said she cooked them all the time. I don't believe I'd care to try them myself. They're not to hard to catch here on Milford Lake, Ks, we'll fish at the dam with worms under a float 2 to three feet deep. I also use my flyrod with small flies like an ant or moth which they will take on occasion.
