    The mystery fish also has the potential to be a common shiner. I think its the same fish based on the coloring, primarily red in the throat and on the tips of the fins, as well as based on the size and shape of the scales. I've caught a few this year, they have the same spiney head seen in your photo. Interestingly, they will rise to dries...

    The striped shiner and common shiner are very similar. In Missouri, where both are found, the easiest way to know which one you have is that some stream systems have one, some the other, but no streams have both. Both get up to about 7 inches long, and they will not only rise to dry flies but will take bass lures!

    I usually see those guys in the shallow runs. So it's inevitable I will catch one there. Hey, whatever keeps the skunk off!
