Yeah, that what I think it is. Be careful. Look to see if the jaw sticks out from the top lip. If it does not, it is an American shad, which are ILLEGAL to keep and you will get a nice hefty fine. Know this from catfishin.

No worries, I did not keep it. I have no desire to eat any shad. I hear they are oily and bony. The only thing I ended up keeping was this 24"er.
