Caught this on my fly rod today in the Gulf. (Pensacola area)
I believe it is a “Mullet” fish.
When I first got it I assumed it was a mullet but it looks a bit different from others I’m familiar with. Thus my post here.
mullets are extremely common here.
Mullet is also the plural of mullet I believe, in the same manner as "sheep".....what kind of cretins do we have fishing here......
Anchovie, better known as a bait fish.
Boooo thought this was thread about the Prom night game “What fish is This!?!”
It looks like it has large translucent teeth but i guess that is not the case.
Looks fishy to me....
Sardine or pilchard
Looks like the shad we use to catch Striper with.
Could be a sardine. A little more belly and smaller eyes than an anchovy.
looks like maybe a little ladyfish maybe, eyes are just a little to small to make me go all in on that though -
Not a ladyfish, but this was my first thought as well.
American Shad to be exact.
Well put the thing on a larger hook and throw it back in and troll around for a little while.
Lake Ouachita Arkansas, early April.
I didn't know shad went in saltwater.
They are ambidextrous. They can go in both.
Now that we know what it is, how did it taste?
