    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

    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.

    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.

    1- Rock Bass
    2-Yellow Perch
    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..
