    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

    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.
