I got the shads backward, too. 89% The threadfin picture was distorted, like it was put in the wrong size frame, or something.

100%   ;D - They need to add more fish to make it challenging!  Throw in some minnows and everyone will be twitching in their seats!

The trick with the shads was to look at the mouth shape and position.  The gizzard shad has a smaller, more subterminal mouth.

Once a fish nerd, always a fish nerd...and I wouldn't want it any other way!

Munga munga creek mate, we skun 'em!

84%, missed the shad and the warmouth never heard of em. D.O.W. Should make similar test For out of staters on how not to mistake a cattle, donkeys,horses,and moose, for elk. Before they are issued a tag! But maybe they figure they couldnt afford to loose the revenue for all the (texans insert your favorite) that couldnt pass no matter how many times they took it.

Haha, one of the rangers I know said he gets asked all the time at what elevation do deer turn to elk.

you are so right, harder to correctly identify since the pictures are smaller. Missed several of the sunfish and carps. I will keep my score to myself it is so embarrassing.

Two got recorded as sauger when I thought I checked the second as the saugereye... oh well, 31/37 or 84% percent... And I thought I learned something in the first quiz.
