Saw this on Travis yesterday morning. Pretty sure it's not a carp. The pics aren't great, I need a polarized lens for my phone. Can anyone tell what it is? [img]http://texasfishingforum.com/forums/pics..._11.52.32_am.pn[/img]

Appears to be Drum, but like you said, pics are hard to make a positive ID .

Are Drum brown though? I really wish I had a polarized lens. I couldn’t figure out what kind of fish it was. Don’t know if you can see but there are spines going through the tail. This fish had a brown color, was working the the rocks and sand feeding on something. I have a short video that I’ll try and attach. Quality still isn’t that great.

The first fish is a Freshwater Drum, I see them all the time in such shallow water that their backs are poking out. The second is a Buffalo of some type, if I had to guess I'd say a Smallmouth as they're typically the most common. Both fish are a ton of fun to catch!
