Caught this yesterday on Nip... Could not make out what it is, has spiked dorsal fin and more of a shout than a mouth. I am thinking of some type of goby, but have not found any similar image.

A log Perch looks closer than the Congoli....see link below.

I agree Longfish, it does look like a logperch. As you can see in my original photo, it bit on a 1/4 oz jig head... weird bite, fairly aggressive. I had never seen this before. Thanks for the research and info!

This image from Wikipedia is very similar to the one shown in my picture. Lots of info on the web from the States, but not a lot from Canada. One interesting thing I read about this fish is that it does not have a swim or air bladder. It lives on the bottom and feeds in the sand and rocks.

Definitely a Logperch.
We see smaller juveniles regularly hiding in the rocks in shallow water, when we're catching crayfish for smallmouth bait.
You lift up a rock and a Logperch darts out and under another rock. They're fairly common.
Have to say though, I've never seen a full grown adult...nor one caught fishing.
Enjoyed the photo and post.

Actually Disco...to be completely correct...it's more likely a Common Logperch (Percina caprodes) as opposed to a Blotchside Logperch (Percina burtoni).
There's eleven species of Logperch, I believe...all very similiar...with different but sometimes overlapping ranges.
The Blotchside Logperch is endemic to the US, has a range that includes Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Virginia and N. Carolina and is classified as endangered/vulnerable.

The Common Logperch, which is prevalent in Lake Nipissing, has a much wider range and is 'not' classified as endangered nor currently under any fisheries management plan
