Went up to the devil's triangle to test the new seine net out that I got for Christmas. Didn't spend much time in the water but I was able to catch this greenside darter, a few dace, and some stonerollers.

No, I wasn't expecting to get anything so I didn't get my camera till the darter showed up.

It's good to see one so motivated.

Somebody else who isn't afraid of the cold! There are actually a few of us hiding around here. Neoprene sure helps...

I keep trying to get in the water here in Wisconsin, but it must be a miracle, cause all I can do is walk on the surface!

Good ol' Yankee water can be mighty uncooperative sometimes, can't it? I remember that same phenomenon from days of my youth. Kinda miss it, to be honest.

I don't know.  This was my first year out in the water hunting down fish and I've got a terrible itch to get back at it.  Chances of a trip south are slim to none, so I await spring...

Menomonee Falls is by Milwaukee and not on the Menominee River on the WI/MI border, right? The latter is ice-jammed and flooding from what I understand. That is certainly winter water to avoid!

Correct. We have the Little Menomonee river, which is maybe 15' wide in places.  I fish little creeks, mostly, and also the Milwaukee river.  We do have quite a few small to medium lake in SE Wisconsin.

Looks lonely out there. Just the way I like my fishing holes. Nice gill, too!

Went back this weekend before the storm. Lots of rainbow darters and what I believe are speckled chubs but its very likely just a stoneroller. I have contacted Dr. Keck about the chubs/stoneroller. I will provide an update when he emails me back. What do y'all think it is?  :-k

great looking rainbows... are you sure that your unknown is not a female dace... not sure what you have up there... but looks kinda like what I would expect a female blacknose dace to look like after capture... but its really hard to tell with that drop of water hiding her mouth (oh and I am terrible at this game... I join in every once in a while just to keep it interesting).

The drop of water is making this all the more fun! Micheal, you are probably right. Do note that their color didn't seem to change from the net to the holding tank.

Dr. Keck emailed back and said " The minnow is a Western Blacknosed Dace, Rhinichthys obtusus. The scales on the dorsum between the head and dorsal fin are smaller and more crowded than all the other scales, which narrows the possible species. Stonerollers, Campostoma spp. , do not have crowded predorsal scales". So it looks like you were right Micheal!

Thanks, Todd. I just couldn't keep them out of the net, so into the photo tank they went.

You had a nice collection of fish on this trip, especially those rainbow darters.
