Had a good sunny weekend at lake greenwood and was having to spend most of the time doing dock/house renovations so didn't get to fish much but at one point I was out on the dock and saw this huge shape surfacing on the water. I got my throwing net and it took me a few tries, each time he went back down and resurfaced like 30 foot down farther down the bank, but I finally got em.
Turned out he was surfacing because he was sick and dying. Probably due to old age cause at this size this fish had to be quite old.
Been coming to lake greenwood for many years now and have never seen a fish like this, looks like a type of sucker fish.
So was just looking to find a proper identification of this huger sucker (no pun intended) and figure out if it can be caught on a regular fishing line or possibly eaten?
Here's a pic of it
