Been catching these things in the cast net for a couple years now. Havnt used them for bait, but they seem to be everywhere. Get tangled in the net bunches at a time. Never seen them before, and not sure if its a common baitfish in early stages, or game fish in early stages. Havnt caught one bigger than 3 inches, so I assume bait. Just wondering if anyone here knows, and has used them for anything. Seems like they are there for a reason. Cant find stocking on them. Fish are clear all the way through. Look like a mini tarpon. Caught in braunig, and Calaveras. Thanks guys.
