Thing that is really throwing me off is the lateral scale count. I come to like 70 scales. That seems like a lot for a redhorse.

Hmmm starting to think it is a white sucker now...

White sucker. 

What state was it caught in?

Yeah, 100% white sucker. They have smaller scales (and thus also significantly more lateral scales) than redhorse.

The scales on a redhorse will be the same size from front to back. A white sucker has smaller scales near the head and they get larger as you move toward the tail.
