They actually fought hard for a minute or 2. Up to the point that I got them in. Not sure it's a creek chub. I just read this article about them and it says that they are 4-8 inches long but up to 12"? Theseguys were 10-14 inches or so.It's a creek chub. Very common. Did it fight hard for 5 seconds and then roll over and play dead? That's what they usually do.
