Crappie, Black Michael Spencer

Species: 
Crappie, Black
Location: 
Lake Mendocino, California
Date Caught: 
Thursday, March 24, 2016
Notes: 
Caught and released fly fishing. Originally entered as White Crappie, corrected to Black Crappie. I've caught both in the lake, just grabbed a quick pick and tossed this guy back. I'm used to the Black being much darker. Once I looked at the pics, I realized it was lacking the bars and has too many dorsal spines for a White.

Yep. I just logged on to correct it. I've caught both in the lake and blacks are usually darker. Thanks for the correction!

Ya just Can't catch um from the couch.

I just logged on to correct it. I've caught both in the lake, and the blacks are usually darker, but I noticed when I got home that the pattern and spine count were off for white. 

Thanks!
