What kind of fish is this?

Asked by peedub (8655 points ) May 12th, 2011

It kind of looks like a walleye or a redfish, but I really can’t tell. Please help.

It resembles a golden trout, except that the dorsal fins look somewhat different.

That is definitely a walleye. Scientific name: Stizostedion vitreum. A member of the perch family of fishes.

It looks like a walleye but they messed up the mouth when they mounted it.
