What kind of fish is this


Recommended Posts

It is not a smelt, smelt have an adipose fin. This looks like it could be a chub. Check to see if the mouth is on the ventral portion of the fish (facing downwards below the mid line).

I have also caught chubs while ice fishing in lakes in Maine, typically when using worms for brook trout in close. I haven't caught emeralds before, but have used them for bait a lot. Actually, I prefer them to smelts because they are more lively and my catch rate is better. Although, some days they only want smelt!
