It's a shiner isn't it?

I have only caught one (on Lake Athens) and it was around 10" or so in length, lighter colored.

Where did you catch it? If near the coast and the water has saltwater access then it's not all that uncommon but if you are land locked then you have done something I haven't seen.

Something I just thought about, if land locked it could have been brought in by Harvey. My best friend lives in Port Arkansas and his pool got flooded during the hurricane and was full of bluegill from a freshwater pond hundreds of yards away.

was there a spiny dorsal (3-4)?
cant imagine a mullet running that far upriver, but Falls on the Brazos SP is the first obstruction it would come to on the main river if it did, so feasible I guess.....

fishbreeder is the man to contact about this on here.

I've fished that area many times. It's a Mullet... The river is full of them down their. Super good Gar and big Catfish bait.
