What speices

Recommended Posts

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.

                  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 🤣

Well, it's definitely a carpsucker.  The only question is what species of carpsucker.  It's either a quillback or a highfin.  Given the depth of the body, I'm going to say highfin, which is cool, because they are a lot less common than quillbacks.

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.😁

That should help the ad bots with future ad placement.
