I have caught these my self, that is a fine specimen, that is as big as the get.

I knew the name of them but it escapes me at the moment.

I catch them where I fish for trout.

It is not a ruffe or a white perch,

it is not an invasive species but so far off the radar it barely gets notice other than being a bait steeler in streams. they like moving water near rocky terrain

what state did you catch him out of?

they do look like baby walleye, and that was what I thought they were when I first came across them,

a fellow trout angler told me what they were.

CoolThat is a "darter". It is a member of the perch family.
