What type of fish?

I caught some of these baby fish and can't figure out what they are. Was wondering if anyone had any insight. Thanks!

It looks like some type of chub to me but I might be wrong.

You should take those home and eat them. I hear whitefish are delicious.

Creek chub. I get them in there all the time.

Creek chub. Great substitute for sucker meat.
