    Default Fish ID

    I catch these pretty frequently in the cast net off my dock. Water is up a creek but I typically only see salt water species on my dock besides American eel. Further up the creek I find freshwater species. My guess would have been a juvenile while perch but I have never caught any adults fishing the fresh brackish or salt near by and am not to familiar with the species. Thanks in advancedClick image for larger version.†

    They are all about this size, mostly silver with a copper gold hue to the back tail and fins along with a little iridescent purple on the back sometimes.

    Im sure trout and other fish eat them. I dont know how hardy there are but im sure they will catch fish.

    Silver perch. You can get bigger ones they are excellent table fare.

    I routunely catch a few of them in my casting net. I have used them on jigs and under poppin corks. They are not hardy and die quickly. I have caught trout and flounder with them, but they would not be a 1st or 2nd bait choice.

    Thanks for the input yíall. Iíll probably keep letting them swim since I donít bait fish much in general. Hopefully they will end up in my cornmeal someday.
