Fish Identification help!

Recommended Posts

Good day, 

I need help in identifying these fish that I caught in the St. Lawrence River! Other fishermen on the dock nearby say they are Carp but I am not so sure.

There isn't a limit on unknown species. If you can't ID, you shouldn't keep it. 

I was being my usual sarcastic self.  If you don't know species your retaining to keep and consume  it's probably best you throw it back. No different then poaching IMO.

Unquestionably, fallfish as many have noted.  The biggest of the three is a dandy.

A fellow who used to belong to a fish and game club in which I was also a member fished for fallfish and ate them.  He poached them in water and claimed the flesh was as sweet as trout.  I did not try them.
