Was fishing yesterday at a local spot and caught a nice hornyhead chub. It measured 10" and really didn't want me to hold it, that's why my hands are so dirty. It almost got back in the water at one point but I recaptured it. Never seen a chub go so crazy. It also had blue bands by it's gills, is that a breeding coloration? After that I caught another one, a bit smaller plus a carp and a white sucker. A ton of other minnows are at this spot, from large to tiny and I want to target them. With the chubs it seems like I always catch hornyheads wherever I'm at, and not other types of chubs. There must be some creek chubs around, any idea how to target them?
Results of some dip netting last year... surprised at the number of species.
