We were fishing in about 20 feet of water jigging with glow in the dark jigs tipped with little pieces of worms. We hit a pile of perch early on and were having a great time getting fish on the ice.
When the most exciting fish of our quest came out of the water!
Fish Number 7! The Fallfish, Semotilus corporalis
To most anglers this fish is just bait or forage, people don't generally eat this big minnow but rules are rules. In fact Wikipedia describes this fish as tasting like feces! It doesn't really say that but that's what some say...
The NH record is 3 lbs. 8.96 oz! Luckily for us this fish was a lot smaller than that.
Our first non-game species, I wonder what it's gonna taste like...
