That's definitely it! Thanks for the id, its been almost two years since i caught this fish, always wondered what it was.

Pretty sure that is a Log Perch Darter (Percina Caprodes). Those are fairly rare to catch on hook and line. Nice catch!

To me it looks like a northern pike

That is a weird looking fish - its almost a hybrid between perch, pike and walleye :D

That or a northern pike. Hard to tell without seeing the face.

The mouth isn't shaped like a walleye.
