Pteronotropis on Hook and Line!!

Shiner, Lowland
~1 inch

Caught this beautiful Lowland Shiner exploring a local creek. My first ever fish from the genus Pteronotropis, one of the most beautiful groups of shiners. Very few people have caught these on hook and line, and now I know why, not an easy species to add to my list.

I'm not enough of a minnow nut to know much about the Pteronotropis genus, but it's a neat little minnow nonetheless. Nice catch.

Susquehannock, thanks man, definitely my favorite shiner so far!

Tim, Hopefully conditions are right Thursday!
