Hornyhead Chub, Nocomis biguttatus

 

This medium-sized chub minnow is named for the prominent tubercules the males develop during the spawning season. When sold as bait, they're commonly called "redtails" or "redtail chub". These are an expensive bait item, but eagerly sought after by walleye anglers. They're also good bait for pike, trout, catfish, and bass.
