That's what I thought it was (and what my wife thought she hooked). The youngest and I are actually home recovering today, when I saw the picture I thought they had a nice sized bass, but noticed the head was a bit wrong. Figured it was a catfish of some sort and my daughter was covering the whiskers. As big a crappie as I've ever seen.
Wife made some gumbo out of the other crappie and blue gill we've caught this summer, yum.
