  2. Details: River Chub

    Went out 2weeks ago with @IAmMoises who landed this Minnow Chub right after I landed mine. Looks like their liking this tree that got swept upstream & ended ...more up caught in between a monster rock slab. Air temp was 57°F can't wait for summer time because where we caught the pair of Chubs was a good spot for sunfish and it might very became an even better one with that tree.

    I need a little help identifying this fish I caught the other day at Otter Creek he measured out at 3 inches so I know he's had to hatch here around these parts ...more of the water. I've fished the Creek for years and seen a vast variety of fish so I'm almost certain it's a Northern Hog Sucker but I might be wrong. Just checking to see if it isn't a new species. Felt this guy attack but no fight came lol
