This is a hornyhead chub, not a creek chub.

Argh! And I caught so many creek chubs all month long.

I always use the presence of a black dot near the base of the dorsal fin as my primary indicator

I did the same thing - didn't notice until I got home.

I know how to tell them apart. Do it frequently. I look at this and it's immedialtely clear what it is. I looked back and there are shots of actual creek chubs from that night. I guess the mosquitoes just forced my brain into a rush mentality.
