What kind of fish?

Post by Bestoutwest » Thu Jul 05, 2018 8:39 pm

What kind of fish are these? We have a bunch in our little irrigation pond, so my wife and son caught some for fun.

Can't really tell but could be what we call rain minnows.

Looking on my PC today, I'm not sure if it's a bluntnose now. It's something I always catch in the creeks here in Ohio, but I don't know the name. It may be a type of shiner.

Edit: now that I zoomed in I can see it better. Pretty sure its a red belly dace.
Do they look like this?

micro fishing...it's a pretty new thing, tho most of us have played around with it at one time or another trying to catch some bait after we were out of minnows or crickets.
I guess it's something I could get into a little more just for the challenge of it.
