Trying to figure out if the crappie being measured is a white or black crappie?

Count the dorsal spines. White crappie have 5 or 6; black crappie have 7 or 8.

LOL. I’d never dream of contradicting your expertise. I just thought I’d throw that out there for those rare occasions when someone wants to know and you aren’t right there to guide them to the truth......

Male white crappie. White crappie have vertical bars on their sides. Black crappie do not. Males get very dark in the spring during the spawn. Not a for sure thing but usually correct.
