I think I posted these before the crash back in 2010!

Hope they are somewhat interesting!

I will post what they are later.

Are the first two bowfins? The third a crappie ,correct? I've caught a couple that had no pattern except for a solid dorsal stripe.
I have very little in the way of fish pictures, I will try to change that. ;)

First pic is an alligator gar then a bowfin and the last a black crappie with a black stripe down the back. The crappie like these are getting more common now since they seem to breed and pass this color phase along to their offspring.

Blacknose Crappie are mostly what the DNR seems to be stocking here in Central Illinois. I've caught a couple hundred so far this year.
