Unidentified Shiner

Unknown Shiner?

Unknown Shiner?

This is so far an unknown type of shiner. I only caught two of these, and both were exactly the same. I was using a tanago rod when I caught these. Characterized by broken, dark blue, geometric patterns on its sides, a row of neon blue dots going down the center of the tail, and a distinctive, lyre shaped tail fin. Does anybody know exactly what species this is? Caught in a secluded little creek in upstate New York.

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
