The top pic is shad, the bottom is fish. Looks like a spoon or crank or maybe an arig would tear whatever it is up

You can make color adjustments to help determine the bottom density, looks like shad in the first pic, and drop a spoon in the second pic. Check here for help with adjusting your unit.
