Anyone seen a fish like this? Looks like a bass but also kinda looks like a crappie

Definitely a white crappie. White crappie have vertical bars on their sides and also have 6 or fewer spines in the front dorsal fin whereas black crappie will have seven or more spines in the front dorsal fin. Both can be found at Arapaho Bend ponds.

This is definitely a crappie given the single top fin.
