White Crappie or Black Crappie

Having a tough time trying to figure out whether this is a black crappie or a white crappie? I caught it in Buffalo, NY and they are in fact in Buffalo.

Looks Like a White

First photo has only 6 dorsal spines and a hint of barring, so I'd bet White.  2nd photo is a Black.
