Counting the dorsal spines I would say it is a white crappie. That is if my count of six is accurate and you rule out a hybrid or mutation.

I would say a white crappie since there are the vertical bars down the side.

Looks like a male white crappie to me.

build and coloration tell me its likely some kind of hybrid version , its built like a black and colored like a white to some degree ,but retains many features of both species . but on this hybridization venue folks tend to get sideways and throw out the I know for sure and you don't thing much of the time and if it is hybridized it could have been a generation or more back when it occurred and it could even be offspring of a hybridized parent . The other thing lots of folks don't realize about mixing genetics is that the offspring can retain the outward appearance to a high degree of either parent and it isn't just a 50 50 thing . its runs the gambit from 99 to 1 back to 1 to 99 and all the other possible ratios in between .
none the less it sure is pretty :highfive

Wow,thanks for the input, we used to catch white crappie in the middle 80's here (35 years ago). Then no crappie for many years, black crappie made a big comeback around 99,no whites, then very few crappie at all until 2010 or there about. We now enjoy a healthy population of huge black crappie. I am at 499 for the year (none killed),this is the only one that looks like a white crappie.
