Dag blasted fish with the teeth

Recommended Posts

Went out Saturday 10/5 in search of those toothy critters. Did really well bottom bouncing in 25-30 fow. Pulled 6 keepers in the boat. Threw 2 back that we’re right on line but decided not to be greedy. And had 2 shorts and 2 REALLY short ( more on that later), with the occasional bass and sunfish. Fished from 7am-4pm again, the bite was strong early morning till just after noon it seemed to start slowing down. Then from 2-4 seemed almost non existent. Was a great day on the water with my dad and uncle. Very limited boat traffic which was nice. 

So about those 2 REALLY short fish. Need some help identifying them. They looked like walleye fry. Both came from getting snagged and circling back to retrieve it. The first time we had a big laugh, joking about if he’s a keeper or not. Then saying we could never do that in a million years. Well sure enough another snag later same thing happened, so the laughing started up again. But if someone could identify what it actually is that would be awesome.

@Quillback and @MOPanfisher are correct, it's a logperch. That is one of the largest darter species in the Ozarks. All darters are related to walleye and perch. That's why it may look like a juvenile walleye in body shape.

And for perch, I'm talking about yellow perch. Also sauger and saugeye. Not "black perch", ozark perch or brim which are likely green sunfish or bluegill😌.

Go ahead pick on my old school name for green sunfish a.k.a. Black Perch.  I have even heard black bass, which aren't even a bass called green trout, of course they aren't trout either.  Not to mention walleye were called Jack Salmon too.  I still call them Jacks a lot.  When a bass eats my crappie jig or walleye lure I usually call them bass turds.
