When anglers are trolling for walleye they can accidently catch Sheepshead and White Bass also. These are the fish that they are most likely referring to. Because these fish aren't really kept most anglers will refer to them as junk fish.

Anyfish you don’t want to keep and eat are considered junk fish. Even fish you just don’t want to catch.
