The white perch and channel

The white perch and channel are correct.  The shiner is for sure not an emerald.  Not sure what it is.  Kind of looks like a common but something is off.

Here are some more pictures

Here are some more pictures of ones I caught. what I noticed right away is the black dot on the end of the tail, I don't see that on any of the silver chub pics. Also, you cant see this on the pictures but they have kind of a dark line running down the top of there back.

I think I just figured it out

I think I just figured it out. It's a spottail shiner.

Got these pictures from this website: http://www.seagrant.wisc.edu/Home/Default.aspx?tabid=605&FishID=147

Correct on the Spottail. They

Correct on the Spottail. They're the second most common Notropis on Erie after Emeralds, used to catch Spottails by the dozen from our pier on Erie back when the lake would be calm for a week at a time.
