we caught these in Michigan what kinda fish are they?
Rock Bass, Perch and I have no idea.
one looks like a perch
1st fish;Warmouth 2nd fish; Yellow perch;3rd fish forgot looks like a mud skipper.
1st one is a warmouth/rock bass (called both, depends on where you live i guess) 2nd one is a perch (yellow i think), people call lots of fish perch but true perch are found more north, like where you got that one, and the 3rd is a robinfish, i think....kinda weird, i caught them in florida and that looks a lot like one. im not sure about the last one but thats my guess, even though theyre suppose to be saltwater
Rock Bass, Yellow Perch and Goby......
Good ,Bad and Ugly shucks I don't know:roll_eyes:
Just name them Moe, Larry and Curley and don't sweat the technical names! LOL
First one is a Rock Bass, second is Yellow Perch...that third one I never saw during 16 1/2 years up there...sure is an ugly critter...LOL.
I'm 90% sure the last one is a goby.
You can be 100% sure, it says so in post #7 lol:big_smile:
Ah, sorry. 100% sure it's a goby. :wink:
im not sure about the first one, but the second one is a yellow perch i think and the third ugly one is to me some kinda of bottom feeder.
1st would be rock bass-2nd is Yellow ring perch would be my guess!!Native to the north have caught few in Nebraska!3-new specices!!!
I'll help take some of the guess work out of #3 lol http://www.seagrant.umn.edu/exotics/gobyid.html
Good job with the link, Netmanjack. Sounds like people need to get rid of those Goby's. I'd check with DNR about the catch in Michigan, but they probably aren't a desirable species.
Pic 1: A nice slab rock bass. Pic 2: A perfect bait sized yellow perch, get yourself some 12"+ of those and you can have one heck of a fish fry. Pic 3: Looks to be a mud puppy or mud skipper, haven't seen one in a long time so I'm not positive.
hmm, i thought fish #3 was a sculpin:confused2:. anyways, their all good bait!
1- Rock Bass
3-Goby- actually comparing the pic with several different fish id books and a website or two... Best i can figure its the round goby which is an invasive species for all states and DNR wants them gone... killed... used as cut bait... what ever you do as long as they don't go back alive to the waters...
It also looks like the SCULPINs we have around my area...I looked around and saw some that looked similar to the pics anyway. But Goby sounds good too..
