    Nope, This fish was caught on the Suncook river in New Hampshire. I caught several in a weedy section just above a big hole. They were very fun and fought hard too.

    It looks like some type of chub or maybe a fallfish. Cusk are in the cod family and have a similar appearance to a burbot. This fish looks like a member of the minnow family.

    Baby Tarpon? Cyprnidae? Fall Fish? They're all delicious.
