My partner, (fishing), caught this yesterday on the James river. This is the first year that I have seen them in the James.I have seen schools of them and I first thought they were large shad but later saw the large scales and the mouths. I'm not much on fish idenification but inquired to @BilletHead. He gave me his answer. after googling some I felt there were 2 possible choices. Thought I'd taike a poll of the OA experts.

It’s got a head like my old girlfriends mom! 😂

I was going to get into taxonomic research, genetic confirmation and assignment of new species, etc., but it's probably because they wouldn't give him a new truck at the MDC. So they pay him to update

I sent the photo onto Robert Hrabik who is currently revising the Fishes of Missouri guidebook. His response was highfin carpsucker.

                  Just what I told you : )

     This is going to make those multi species anglers jealous!   Actually see that fishes face. Looks like it is frowning. Those guys frown will look the same 🤣

These ads make it really hard to follow a post.   This is probably why so many posts get hijacked around here. Screenshot_20200714-235252.png

 

How can we learn anything about carpsuckers and COVID19 with distractions like that?  😋

I get the same ads.  I think it’s a red teddy.😁

Better wait for @Johnsfolly to chime in.  

                   Yes he would know. Lots to consider here. @Ham might know. Shape of fin and number of rays in each fin. @curtisce  did you by any chance count the rays in the anal fin? :)
