Hi- We have a creek that runs through our property that my husband and I fish in. We usually see very large common carp in the slow moving pool area- which is about 3-4 foot deep. My husband has even pulled a channel catfish out of there as well. As of late, I've been going down and bobber-fishing. I've been catching these fish about 6" long- I have no clue what they are! I thought maybe a young type of carp- since that is mostly what is in there. They are shiny silvery green almost- some even have a gold cast to them as well. Some have a stripe down the side while on some the darker greenish gold/silver color blends into a white belly. They only have one top fin, no stripes on the head- and a pinkish sheen to the face patch along the gills (sorry I don't know technical terms, lol!). The fins are a peachy-orange tone it seems. And they are long in body. Has anyone seen a fish like this? I will take a picture next time I catch one but they really have me stumped! I know they arent largemouth bass, or walleye or northern pike- anything like that- which leads me to believe they are a type of carp. I thought maybe grass carp but they gladly go after the worms on my hook, which made me think twice about that possibility. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
