caught it in a local bait stream kinda thought it looked like a baby walleye anybody know for sure?
Not for sure what that is!! Thought at the first look it could be a Muskie fingerling, but the shape of the head and mouth is different! Hoping someone can shed some like on this!!
That would be my guess.
here's a link to show what Tiger Muskie fingerlings look like. http://images.search.yahoo.com/imag...&sigr=11lrhrv1u&sigi=122uflhn9&sigb=135bh3go4
i've caught spring chubs that look alot like that
the dorsal fin... I think thats right thats the one on top right? had the shape of a walleye or a yellow perch
just found this
kinda looks about right
It's a trout-perch, scientific name percopsidae.
not so sure about that trout perch I just looked for a second but the trout perch have spots that are less pronounced and the dorsal fin is not quite walleye enough but you may be right
and i couldnt find them mentioned in any PA waters but there in most of the surrounding states New York and Ohio namely
if they were a little bigger i'd call it "bait":wink:
Joe I can tell you for sure it's not a walleye or perch. I tried looking at different minnows and couldn't find any matches I'm curious to find out what it is too I've never seen a fish like that before.
That's pretty neat JDKK, thanksfor the thread.
Here in Ohio we call them tiger fish. There are many of those in the streams an they never get bigger then 3-4 inches long.
Might check again. My reference book does show the trout-perch to be found in PA. It might not be, but it looks a lot like one to me.
dude, i dont know what that is and i cant find it... that is a cool find...id say if they were a little bigger i would catch a bunch and use them for bait....hahaha... i hope you find out i would like to know
my bad about the photo being blurry but the digi camera wouldnt focus right
BOOM GOT IT
looks like a log perch to me to.we have them here in arkansas and we call them rock rooters.there easy to catch with a small hook and piece of worm.ive cought them up to 10 inches long and they are real good baits for waleye and bass.
Looks like you got it bud!! :cool2:
According to that its only found in the Ohio River watershed and Lake Erie and its tribs. Your a long way from either. Thats interesting. Apparently those little guys are expanding their range.
Looks like a darter to me. There are a bunch of different kinds.
