Well I see the picture was removed but it is all good
as that fish is IDed. It is a northern studfish. Now I
have to go back and catch some more. I wish I would
have tried getting a few of the others home but they
were so large I feared they would not make it in a
gallon bag.

The problem is they were not found in back water or
slow moving water. All of the ones I caught were taken
from the fastest moving area of the spot I sampled. It
was a ditch with in the river(very small here) which
was maybe 2 feet deep and 3 feet across with large
rocks. The water was very rough there.

I will be going back there Thursday, weather
permitting. If I can land more of these, I will set
them up and try to breed them. Any suggestion for web
site reading on this topic will be helpful.
