12.0 in. Creek Chub caught by Dennis Huskins fishing in New Jersey on 10/11/13
12.0" Creek Chub caught by Dennis Huskins fishing on Friday October 11, 2013 at 12:00 near Long Valley in Morris County, New Jersey (NJ), United States North America using a 1/16 oz jig and grub a Grub

Went out 2 days in a row to hit all the trout places, I know for a shot at the fall trout stocking. I was at the Lamington (Black River)2 places, the South branch of the Raritan (very low) in 3 places, and the Muskenetcong River in 3 places. Thank God all close to home. Well I caught a Pickerel, 3 Creek Chub, 2 Sunfish, a micro Largemouth Bass, and a single Brookie of 9 inches that looks to be a hold over. (Fall Stockers are 12 and 15 inches and 1 to 2 pounds)

Well my friends from the 1960s around the C&O canal & Potomac River, and also Wikipedia called those, in your photo, "suckers".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catostomidae

In the Wikipedia article, it looks like the bottom feeder, that you're keyin about, is illustrated in right column, as "White Sucker", and the fish that is in your picture, or one close to it, is labeled as "smallfin redhorse" which my friends used to call "suckers".

That is the trouble with "common names" vs. scientific names, as we all no doubt agree.

The trouble with scientific names is that they are all framed in the speech of the universal enemy, rome.

I've been through this discussion before. Suckers around here are bottom feeders and have a mouth pointing down. These Creek Chubs / Fall fish live in fast current in trout streams near water falls and go for swimming bait. What say you Hank & Brian etc.?

Nice catch!

Creek chub is a minnow. That is a "sucker".
