I did a search for chubs/stripers and got about a million hits then I realized I had made a typo and was searching for chubby strippers...
Sorry, my bad

JC's "sucker "isn't a hornyhead chub..no spot on tail.
Silver chub are rare..ont. distributuon lake Erie, Lake St. Clair.
I've seen lots of trout-perch ( Buddies did   commercial minnow trapping and I'ld help often )and they only get to 5" long.
Other chubs generally have a dark lateral line and a change in scale colour above and below.
I'm pretty sure both fish are fallfish..due to size !
I've seen golden shiners up to 8".
Okay ..off to that chubby stripper search.

wow! is this ever eye opening! a gizillion chubs/fallfish/minnows!!!

i have been having a debate with my nephew on this for years.  ;D

they do look to be fall fish of a type, at least. the size as you say makes them most likely, just some local sub spieces perhaps? these are found all along the river systems of nb side of the bay of fundy. they show way more red and black than other fall fish.

i stand corrected. but my nephew still calls them chub...!lol!

Fallfish my guess. There is no such fish in New Brunswick Ipop. No redfaced chub. Thats a slang name for a chub in spawn colors. Here is the New Brunswick ID key that will be used for future fish that are being misclassed.

Judging by all of the doctors and biologists creditted in this one Id say it is pretty sound. Ipop if you have a fish that is not on the inland list then take pics of all of its fins, get close up of scales and kill it to give to these doctors.

first , on the lighter side, i am deeply disappointed that my 6" golden shiner is only average! :'( 8" you say eagleEyesFlash!? and after all that work to catch one big enough to post...then i couldn`t catch one for the tourney - how disappointing! your silver chub and trout-perch are 2 seperate species? i`m assuming that they are only found here due to being used for feed for the smallie as they came here on the train from ontario and the states, same as the reb brested sunnies and shell crackers. i`m not sure if the long eared are native or an import too. our pumpkin seeds are native. i have only ever caught those 2 trout-perch but you here about them every once in a while.

I dont really want to get into the this to much John. All I can say is that if you catch a fish not on the list you will need to provide us with photo evidence and allow us to help give it an ID. There are many on here that are very good at ID and I myself am a F&W Tech as is another member. We will figure it out so long as you take good photos when this takes place. Particular areas to photograph are the mouth in relation to the eye so we can determine distance the maxillary extends and fin placement and tail open so we can see lobes and the dorsal spikes and anything else you think leads you to believe that it is a different species of fish. If it is a sunfish(pumpkinseed) we have many guys on here that catch them all the time. Take a picture of its spot on its gill cover and good photos of its side. These fish adapt to their surroundings and color varies greatly due to that, sex, spawning, substrate and food. So pics are needed.
As for the source. They are the best you have to deal with and as their title suggests they are pretty darn studied.

Hey Ipop,
Your golden shiner was big enough to take a hook and is the only one ever shown in CKA.
Enough with minnows!
We liked your strippers.
An entry of a sturgeon or A. salmon would be cool.
Fish -on bro !! ;) ;)
