Dipnetted from a large lake in north central Florida. Any help would be appreciated. All were no more than 4".

Small catfish?

I'm just making guesses, and I am very often wrong. First photo appears to be juvenile bullhead catfish. Last one is some sort of sunfish. No idea about the middle two, but your photos are glorious.
So happy that you are getting into dipnetting. I look forward to your future posts about your finds. I'm a native fish maniac. Keep the pictures coming, please. I expect to learn a lot from your posts.

I wouldn't hold your breath. I appreciate all of the compliments, but I'm also here to get schooled! (I know, bad pun.)

The last one appears to be a cichlid of some sort.

I asked a colleague who studies invasive fish in Florida what he thought, and he said it looked like a juvenile blue tilapia.
Here is another photo

Hey Noah.

These are all guesses, but I'd go with:

1. Channel Catfish (this is the one I'm least certain of)

2. Golden Top Minnow or a closely related species

3. Spotted or Largemouth Bass fingerling

4. Some variety of Tilapia?

Even if I'm wrong, I hope my suggestions might point you in the right direction.

Chris

Agreed, except the only change I would make would be #1 is a bullhead (probably a brown) and #2 is definitely a Golden topminnow.
