    My kid landed this last weekend I have no clue what it is lol.

    Any guesses? I kinda thought it was a log perch but the bottom fin is not right.

    Thanks

    Doesn't fit any native fish species I don't think.

    I'm guessing grown up baitfish, somebody dumped their minnow bucket last winter.

    Nope the killifish has a different jaw line. .


    It may be log a perch lol. The pictures that I looked at last night looked like it had a different shaped fin. This book shows the bottom fin is the same on the log perch.

    What I don't see it the top fin it doesn't look thike it's there ? Who knows maybe it's hiding [emoji23] lol.

    Yeh your's does not appear to have that top fine but I thought it could be sitting flat,close as I could come to what you got.
    That baitfish booklet is generally available at the MNR office's.

    Log perch usually have more and thinner bars on their sides looks more like a banded killifish.
