    Kinda hard to tell now a days what is male and female....

    1. you can check by looks but nowadays males can have female conformation. Shape and size of pecs. Big round ones or big fan like.

    2. you can touch the fish and checking if the is obushi, males general have a sand paper rough face in early spring to late spring. This method is generally more accurate. You can also check for milt or eggs by squeezing the abdomial area. This method is better when the fish is older.

    3. also, some fish remain sexless..
    The world sleeps as the chance to learn something new passes.
