    Looks like a Roach / Bream hybrid to me.

    It does look very much like the fish in the picture, but it's a species we don't have here in Texas, although, judging from the attainable size, I wish we did!

    "Bream", in Texas anyway, seems to be a generic term which, along with "perch", is used to describe any kind of sunfish or all of them together. It wasn't until I read your post that I learned "Bream" is an actual species in some areas. I need to get out more

    Thanks for the reply!

    Thanks! I'm thinking about putting together a new line of "minnow rods". #0000 weight seems a little heavy--I might have to go with a -1 weight and a hook size a little smaller than 32's. Golden Shiner's could be the Tarpon of the minnow world.

    jdub in my river we have these chubs or something. they look like overgrown minnows also and make your hand stink like old nasty fish when you unhook um! anyways they will smash some nymphs like gold hares ears all day and they could use a 0wt rod! the smallest fish I ever caught was a shiner minnow 1 1/2 long. caught it snagged through the side just like you'd hook it for a perch on a spin rod. also caught a small minnow on a single chartreuse egg. lol.

    Would you filet this one or just throw it on the Barbie and have it with a good Riesling?

    That is an interesting picture and others might want to see it.

    Thanks, Frank
    Smaller images--sorry

    They may call them Bream in the UK, they look like shiners to me as well.

    Yeah definitely appear to be golden shiners. I've caught a couple in Lake Guntersville in that size range while fishing for bluegill and shellcrackers on spinning gear, but they don't seem to get much bigger than that. I would assume that it would be pretty fun though, considering how aggressive some of them are (caught my biggest on a Rapala size 3 original floater).

    I've never really heard of targeting them specifically with a rod either, although I'll probably do so now that you've gotten me really intrigued .
