River or Greater redhorse...
<p>KenT and I had a blast landing this redhorse earlier today. &nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>KenT has some better pictures of the fish, but here are the shots I have on my camera: &nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/527982_3347590302433_194451061_n.jpg" style="width: 500px; height: 381px; " /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/530886_3347589822421_678580002_n.jpg" style="width: 500px; height: 375px; " /><img alt="" src="https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/304659_3347589422411_559000236_n.jpg" style="width: 500px; height: 375px; " /></p> <p><img alt="" src="https://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/558582_3347588702393_459985122_n.jpg" style="width: 500px; height: 375px; " /></p>

I hate you Michael

I hate you Michael cheeky I'm not taking you fishing at my spots anymore...stealing a River Redhorse right under my nose...I'm still looking for my lifer River...and I even drove to Ottawa for a remote chance at one...but caught none!!! cheeky

 

Seriously, congrats to Michael...I thought it was a River...we wanted second opinions and consensus. Michael also caught 4 other lifers today. What a banger day!

 

I'll have to send you the pics tomorrow night...just finished baking cheesecake...really, really tired.

 

At least the net went out with a bang! crying

 

** I'm just Ken here...KenT on SCSF...Ken+ on some other forums...and MuskieBait on others...It gets confusing, huh? laugh

Beautiful Fish!

Beautiful Fish!

Not asserting any knowledge in identifying, but my initial thought before looking at any responses to the thread was a River with that big block head...Awesome fish, congrats!

Hmmm does it still look like a River to you guys from this shot?  How do you tell?  

The dorsal fin isn't really as flag-like as I would expect, looking as other pictures of Rivers.  And there is a notch in the top of the head... like a Greater...?

Looks even more like a River in that shot.

Concave dorsal fin = River. Plus the tail shape. Plus the head shape.

Beautiful fish.
