Can someone tell me if this a crappie ?

Looks like a crappie to me. Except for the split in the tail which might be from an earlier injury. My son brought it home this evening and told me to look at the new kind of fish he caught. We live in Hickman county and Ive been fishing in the Piney River on and off for 12 years and have never caught a crappie. Anyone else catch crappie out of the Piney River ? If so then I cant believe Ive gone this long without seeing or catching one. But then again they say there is trout in the Piney and Ive never caught one of them either.
P.S. We live in the northern part of Hickman county if that helps. Also Im glad to see them...it was tasty \:D

Yep, crappie.
Might have ripped the tail making a bed or something might have grabbed it.

Thanks RUGER just wanted to make sure there wasnt another kind of fish that looked like a crappie. I didnt know they was in this part of the Piney and then maybe they are migrating ???

Often fish like Crappie will get into a river where they're not naturally found. This usally happens when they're stocked in a pond a big rain comes and the pond overflows into the river.

NO... it is actually a "Silver Carp."

If you catch more of them, just let me know and I'll take them off your hands.

Yes a crappie, but more specifically a black crappie (Pomoxis nigromaculatus).
