Looks like a shad or herring. Was it slimy and smelled realy fishy? Shad. Maybe an alewife?

Looks like a white fish. I have been catching them in Illinois, only the last five years or so. Don't know if DNR has been stocking them or if they are just coming. Pretty sure that's what they are. A couple have been good size.

Not an Alewife, my guess, some type of shiner
