        Some kind of sucker or creek chub.

          Use to catch a lot of those out of the Bosque River near Hico, Texas. The ones we caught were mostly larger, near the 2 to 3 lb. range. My Great Uncle Jim just called them suckers. Not bad eating, but very bony, many fine bones, similar to a carp or buffalo.

            I'd say either a chub or a variety of dace.

              Looks like a chub. We catch them all the time trout fishing.

                It's a sucker. If caught in cold water they are better eating, the meat stays firmer. In winter guys will cut holes in the ice and use a sucker hook, kind of like an inverted frog gig, to snag them out of the river. My Dad's family would take the eggs, roll them in flour, salt and pepper, then pan fry them in butter.

                  Common American sucker. I know some old-timers who prefer them above all fish, when they're caught in the springtime before the water warms up. In my area, it used to be a pre-trout season ritual. The suckers would fill the cricks while they spawned, and guys would go catch buckets of them (might be why we never see runs like that anymore). In the bigger streams, I've caught them up to twenty inches, but never ate one.
