yep we let it go, right after the picture.It's a beautiful fish. Catch & release? Not judging, just . . . please say yes.
looked those up, except this one's face is different. i do belive its in the carp family. but its face is wrong, i belive its a type of redhorse (after some research) because of its mouth it was facing downwards like a sucker-A Carp without barbels eh?
Some carp do not have barbels e.g. Grass Carp, Crucian Carp, Gibel Carp etc.
That could also make sense, its actually on the list of native species here- unlike the buffalo carp.Looks like moxostoma hubbsi to me. Not a buffalo carp.
Yeah.. that post a year ago was also me. I had never seen a redhorse before. But this one looked so different it puzzled me.There was a very similar post to this a year ago or so and it was a reshorse in Quebec. I’m not sure where you’re fishing but they’re known to be I think west of Quebec. But it was in fact a redhorse. The gill plates look a little iffy to me, but the entire body shape and lack of barbels totally rule out the buffalo carp. I’m nearly certain that’s a redhorse.
