I'm new to this site and also relatively new to fishing. What the odds are of catching a yellow/golden crappie? I believe that is what I got and I would like to verify that I am correct on the species of the fish. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Any input is appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Diego

Diego I believe that to be a blue gill, not a crappie but just as tasty....... food

Welcome to the Texas Fishing Forum. That at first glance does kinda resemble a crappie. I believe that it is really a sunfish, bluegill, perch goes by different names. Enjoyed looking at the picture, Thanks

I don't think that is a crappie. The blue speck on his gill gives it away. Still a tasty panfish.

Close, but no cigar.
Golden crappie looks like this.

HOLD THE PHONE!!! Though it is a specimen of bream, the golden/yellow coloration is still very rare!!!!!!! Congrats on the catch, despite it not being a crappie!

welcome to the forum!
Ditto to what Beltonbanger said! That is the first bluegill I have seen that was gold, seen a few crappie pics, but no bluegill! Thanks for the pic! Very rare!
