When I went up to Indianapolis for the Pacer game this past weekend, I stayed with my grandparents and they live on a lake. Its on the north side of the city a little west of Geist reservoir (if anyone knows what i'm talking about). I was checking out the water when i noticed this fish that washed up on the shore. At first I thought it was a wiper because there are so many in their lake, but it didn't have the stripes. Then i had a theory that someone was dumping Asian carp in the lake from the river next door. Finally, i looked it up and am pretty positive it's a very large shad.
The measurements were 13 3/4 to 14 inches long.
Not sure if images will work, didn't have an attachment option.

It has been a while, but I found the pictures I never got posted back in February. I started using photo bucket because that is what everyone seems to use on here. Plus I don't like the way the picture shows for attachments...
