Last weekend my friend Matt Miller was in Iowa visiting family, so I met up him at the Rock River near Moline to do a little fishing. It was cold and rainy. I caught one smallmouth bass before he arrived, and then we each caught one shorthead redhorse.
Shorthead Redhorse (Moxostoma macrolepidotum)
Mine was clearly a male.
And I'm guessing Matt's was a female.
It was really cold and really wet, but at least we caught some fish. It was good seeing you again Matt!
