At right around 26 seconds I get a brief visit from a sucker I can't identify. It's to the right of the frame. Is it a White Sucker? That'd be a lifer for me, believe it or not. Go full screen and frame to frame and you can actually get a half-decent look at it. Wish this vid was as clear as the one straight from the memory card.

No, I'm not. It just didn't look like the other jumprocks I saw. I'll try to post that video later today so they can be compared. Will give the minute mark too so you don't have to watch anymore "only exciting to Matt" video than necessary!

That's really judgmental of you, Matt, to say that 'all Jumprocks should look the same'.  #stopthefishhating

I agree with jumprock.  Striped jumprock.

Here's a link to a couple fish I id'ed as Striped Jumprocks. The body shape is obvious to me now, but this pair had subtle mottling while the fish in the first video didn't. These fish have more evident striping, too. The jumprocks in the new vid are at 12 seconds, whole thing is only 23. Other jumprocks I saw looked like these last two.

Thanks for your help, all.

I couldnt tell from the video, but... Little ones (say 4 inches) are mottled almost as much as a hogsucker. Bigger ones get the more uniform color I saw in the other video
