Fish of Leabank Square - Bluntnose Minnows
Check all these amazing fish out!!
No sooner have the reedbeds been installed - than hundreds of minnows have moved in underneath them.
Minnow is general term used to refer to small freshwater and saltwater fish, especially those used as bait fish or for fishing bait. More specifically, it refers to small freshwater fish of the carp family.
There have been a few carp drifting by - so look out a soon-to-come entry on them. In the meantime - it seems the best time of day to see these tiny beauties is in the afternoon - for some reason.
Stay in the same spot for a few minutes - and these shy minnows will soon cloud by.
