The first two were caught in the Rum river, MN, under the dam closest to the Mississippi. 


The next 3 are the same fish: I'm thinking bluntnose minnows?





The next couple are from the same location, but I don't really have a good idea of the ID. 




The next two fish are from Minnehaha creek, from the falls to the mouth.


The first 3 pics are of one fish 




The next couple are of one fish as well. I'm thinking mimic shiner, but I am quite unsure...



Thanks guys. Any help is appreciated!

Those are some nice microfish catches. Don't know any of the id's for you, mostly chimed in to say that the time shortly before/during/shortly after the annual convention is oftentimes pretty slow on the forum. Everybody who can make it is to busy fish-geeking and those of us who can't are trying not to be sullen and jealous... ;) I bet you'll get more feedback in a few days.

'Til then, sorry that I can't be of any help to you.

The fish in your first three photos is a bluntnose minnow, Pimephales notatus. The others I hesitate to say because I don't know exactly what other cyprinids are in Minnesota.
