Through the hobby of lifelisting I have come to enjoy photographing my catches as much as I do finding and fishing for them. Nothing beats adding a new fish to the lifelist, but we all know not every day brings a new lifer so catching particularly large or beautiful specimens of the fish I catch often is the goal most of the time. I just figured out how to post photos to the forum (Finally) so I thought I'd share some of my favorite photos I got this year of (mostly) micros.
Fully colored male creek chub
Large male Rainbow Darter
A very Yellow Bullhead
Beautiful Male Steelcolor Shiner
A very large (at least for my area) male Longear Sunfish, Look at that forehead!
This is the biggest striped shiner I have ever seen...... an absolute TANK. ~9"
My favorite fish picture I took of 2017, a stud male Central Stoneroller caught actively spawning. Perfect specimen.
Lets see those textbook patterned and jumbo sized small fish!
