Nice catch! Looks like it might be a silver redhorse.

Thanks I was wondering that too, I got some really good pics of the lips and decided on Golden, let me know what you guys think, I've not caught either of them before now.  Thanks!! 8)

There have the mouth pics up, I thought Silvers had little bumps on their lips?  The area I was fishing has Greater, River, Golden, Silver, and Shortheads in it, I was sure it wasn't a SH, but not sure on Golden or Silver, any help would be awesome!!!

Cool, man thanks a bunch.  I have that chart some one recommended here printed out, but trying to get a good picture that isn't blurry, not hurt the fish, and hurry makes it a bugger to figure these out.  Thanks again, I will change it on my list too.  8)
