Blackwater, I have caught them behind my house while fishing for bluegill. They are bait stealing but they pull right good for a little bit.
Some of the oldtimers around here call them a roach but as far as I can tell, that is a fish in England.
As some have said, they are also called a shiner.
Is this the same big bait fish they fish for large bass in south Georgia lakes under a balloon?

Yes, the roach is a fish found in england and europe, and yes, golden shiners are the premier bait for big bass.

My grandpa called them roaches too. In fact that is all I knew them by until I was about 15.
