Fish ID

I caught this a little bit south of Peoria. It's 24 inches long and it seemed to weigh about 5 lbs though I didn't have a scale. I looked online and can't figure out what kinda fish it is.

Northern Pikeminnow.

That is the dirtyest Pikeminnow I have ever seen. Was it like this when you caught it or did you keep it out of the water?

Kill every single one you find. They are non beneficial fish. DO NOT kill Whitefish. They are real silvery and have tiny mouths and are NATIVE.

5 lbs of fertilizer...

Hard to tell for sure from your pic. But, it's either a pike or a carp.

I like Jiggzy's fertilizer idea!

Ya that looks like a a Northern Pikeminnow.But its a little darker than usual. Its worth about $4.00 at The Pikeminnow Sport Reward Fishery Program. :)

It isn't a carp. Carp have a nasty looking sucker mouth and a much different and often larger dorsal fin.

I believe they are NATIVE. Not sure if they're beneficial in the eyes of a salmon/steelhead fisherman, but they have their place.
