Found a few hungry fish. Need help identifying

Postby Adamwest » Thu Mar 08, 2018 12:07 am

I found a few hungry fish this afternoon on the west side of Michigan. My daughter and I fished the same area for 6 hours last Wednesday and only caught a small rainbow and a small brown. Today things were a little different. All fish were released because I am just practicing for Metrowest on the 24th. :lol:


Can you identify this fish for me?

I was a little confused because to me it really doesn't look like any of these. :D

This one is smaller than the rest do you think it is a resident Rainbow?

Nice catch Adam!
That first fish looks like a "Fat-head"

Thanks guys!

I was was wondering if members even read this message board anymore.

I think what threw me was the lack of a kype on the first fish and that huge belly. It was 3 inches thick from nose to tail.

Tight lines,
Adam
