It really helps to know a bit more about the environments you were
catching the fish in as there is a lot of zonation in Texas between
lowland stuff and more hilly habitats. Looks like you were in hilly stuff
though based on some of the species.

bullhead_minnow is correct. 47 is Campostoma anomalum (I think), 12 may
be Notropis stramineus perhaps. I can't tell what 26 is.
