I stand corrected.  Spottailed shiner looks like the right call.

Yeah it's definitely a new species for me. Glad I caught it! I'm leaning towards spottail shiner now after doing a little research. If I was tip up fishing I would have put it down a hole that's for sure. I was looking for perch and kept getting tiny bites on my spoon, finally hooked into whatever they were and this is what came up.

Emerald shiner.  No spot on tail.

All I know is I wish I caught it!  That'd be a new species for me!

Spotfin Shiner is not a bad call but I'd go with Emerald Shiner.

It’s not a smelt but it looks similar and now I’m hungry for some.
