My best guess is Silver Redhorse. It would be nice if that dorsal fin was fully upright as it appears to be slightly laid back.

If it was a golden, it was a MONSTER

We usually get shortheads, I was told it also might be a River Redhorse.

If it was a Golden it was a state record.

Any Experts, I'll post another pic, and a new one that I have no clue about.

I'm gonna have to say silvers on both of the first two. And for sure that last one is a white sucker. Maybe someone else with more experience identifing redhorse will chime in.

The first two are definetely golden redhorse. The dorsal is concave. The silver has a convex dorsal. Besides that, the mouth and head structure is totally different. The silver has way bigger lips that face more downward than the fish in the pics and a larger head. I got a second opinion from a very reliable source, and he agrees. Nice golden!

I'd say a silver, based on the fact that they have 14-15 dorsal ray spines while a golden has 12-13. The dorsal fin in not spread enough to tell if its concave or convex.

Definetely not a river, they have a red fins, like a shorthead, but a larger, blunt head with larger lips.

silver and a white sucker. nice catch.

I counted 15 rays on the dorsal fin, hence a silver. I've caught several silvers that had dorsal fins slightly concave and looked similar to a goldens. Golden Redhorse have either 12 or 13 rays on their dorsal fin.

I take my statement back. After reading the other replies, I am counting the dorsal spines. Although they are hard to count exactly, I am seeing between 13-15. That would make it a silver. If there are more than 13 that is.

I don't have the experience dealing with these fish to confidently identify them either... A little help?? Top is from the Cannon River and bottom is from some St. Croix backwater.

I recognize them somewhat, look like shorthead redhorse, those are my normal redhorse at the Crow River. That's my opinion.

    • Correct.  Stinkhorns.
    • Sorry, HW signed the agreement then handed it over to Billy C.  So, you're right, clearly the democrats fault.
    • Who signed the NAFTA treaty? The House of Representatives approved NAFTA, by a vote of 234 to 200 on November 17, 1993, and the Senate voted 60 to 38 for approval on November 20. It was signed into law by President Clinton on December 8, 1993, and took effect on January 1, 1994.   Derp.....
    • I say we go to Mars and make the Martians pay for it.
    • No idea what you're talking about, but I'll assume it's complimentary.
    • Probably a good call since Trump's assertion that Billy C. signed NAFTA into law is false.
    • Any one have one of the newer automatic King Quest Satellites? I just bought a new Ice Castle, and my old own had the Winegard crank up style dish which I had no problem with. They are trying to tell me to buy a new  king portable one, but I am not sure it is worth the extra money. I only know of one person with the newer one, and he said he liked the older crank up one better. He said he was always losing signal with automatic one. Any feed back would be great.. Thanks
    • Hey all, I recently upgraded from my homemade wheelhouse to a new hydraulic ice castle and had a few questions I forgot to ask at the dealer. 1. For the hydraulic frame, does anyone bring extra hydraulic fluid with? Wouldn't imagine to need it unless you had a leak but I don't know much about hydraulics. Ever need to change out the fluids? 2. Ladders. After buying and trying to get on the top bunk I noticed it is extremely hard to climb up there (especially after a few beers) are they suppose to come with a ladder? was going to call the dealer and try and make them throw one in. I made a temporary ladder which works fine but wondering what other people have done. 3. DNR Registration numbers. My previous house I had some decals made up and looked real nice. However that had smooth siding. Anyone have any advice on where to put numbers that look good? Suppose I could just be extra careful in applying to the ribbed siding so they get applied smooth with the grooves but wondering where everyone else puts theirs. Don't really want to do the old white square boat numbers on there. 4. Microwaves. Anyone have any recommendations on a good microwave to install? I have a lot of empty space above the hydraulics near the kitchen I think a microwave would be perfect, and there is already an outlet there for charging the hydraulic system battery - just wondering if anyone had a good one for travel/low power draw. 5. Any recommendations on generators? Was going to go buy a new Honda 2000 have heard good things about them and always been a Honda fan. that should run a small microwave I'm thinking? My Honda 1000 bit the dust last year - mainly because of my own mistake haha 6. Sound system. Sounds okay in there but it isn't the upgraded premium speakers. Wondering if anyone had some new speakers they liked and possibly a new deck. 7. Rod holders. Wanted to throw some fishing pole holders on the wall in the bathroom. Was having a hard time finding any I liked at the stores or online. Anyone have something that worked well for them, and didn't fall out during transit? I had one last year I had mounted under a cabinet and of course the first weekend with my new crappie pole fell off and broke!   Figured I'd see if anyone had any advice on what worked well for them. Thanks in advance!!
