For those who might be interested in keeping a shiner with similar body proportions, high color at times, and much smaller at maturity than the Striped Shiner...take a look at the Crescent Shiner (Luxilus cerasinus) with a photo here: http://www.cnr.vt.ed...s/crescent.html


That is a nice fish, i need to find some.

Hey Brian why are you running tandems?

There are so many of the shiners that you can catch more than one at a time. They seem to get excited when one finds some food and will chase after them, often you end up with two on at once.

I've witnessed them behaving similarly Brian.
I love to use small crawdad crankbaits for them locally and on more than one occasion I've caught two on the same tiny lure. They try and strip the crankbait right out of the other fishes mouth.

Great pictures! I used to catch them as a kid but never knew what they were. Any info on their captive care would be great! Can they be mixed with daces? I've found them in the same area as black nosed & long nosed dace.
