    thanks for the info guys. Creek chub, thats new to me. When i stand over the bridge i always see tiny fish check out whatever lure or bait i have in the water...so i guess this was a big one for being a creek chub haha. Is this a type if minnow?

    you can call it a minnow i suppose.......im not sure how good they stay alive with a hook in them, but they make a great cut bait.......they're very bloody.

    looks like it may be a stoneroller, a type of minnow, or it could be a creek chub, the scales look a bit big for a chub though, maybe a sucker.

    First one is actually a river chub (much like the creek chub but darker and slightly diferent shape.) If you catch more the best way to fish them is live. The way you do that is to hook them through one nostril and out the other. They stay alive forever and make wicked good bait.

    Im going with creek chub on the first one which was usually the only baitfish available in the baitshops where I fish in Canada and second is a rockbass.
    Creekchubs make a great pike bait under a slipfloat just outside the weed edges:big_smile:

    I have to agree with wolfman, the first one looks like a shinner minnow great bait. Second one kind of looks like a rock bass, but has kind of a small mouth. The picture is kind of hard to see but the fins and scales kind of look like a bluegill hybred. Also great bait.

    The first one is a chub. The second one is a rockbass or redeye. Both are good baits fished live.
