I think you might've snagged a black buffalo, buddy. DO NOT show this to the DNR as they are EXTREMELY rare and on the endangered list. You'll get a ticket........

The fish doesnt have the long fin running down the lower back of the fish like the buffalo though. Fins match up with a sucker.

I'd say it's a silver redhorse. Best way to identify them is that the lower lip has a distinct V shape...but I am guessing it went in the smoker a while ago!

White sucker, White sucker, White sucker, White sucker, White sucker, White sucker, White sucker, White sucker. It's not that tough to tell if you have any clue on fish identification.

To me it looked like a hinged mouth at first. Looking at it zoomed in it does look more like a sucker mouth...

Maybe the OP can clarify...

White sucker; 100%. Easy way to tell is the scales. They start out smaller and more densely packed near the head and get slightly larger and spaced out more as you move toward the tail.

Fat one at that! Nice catch.
