I don't know what kind of fish this is?

 Hello.. I was fishing the Red River today north of Lindenwood. I caught a bunch of Gold eyes so I cut them up and thought I would use them for Catfish bait. I instead caught a fish that looks kinda like a silver bass. I am not sure though I tried uploading the picture from my phone and it's not working. The fish was silver in color with some bluish purple coloring on top... it had large lips that extended..when opening its mouth no teeth at all that I could see. It had a line of small holes along its side and its bottom fin had a longer point.. I have looked online and it doesn't look like a carp or sheephead or really anything else for that matter. It was a nice catch after catching a ton of goldeyes. Didn't freak out like them when they caught it was a pretty calm fish..I ended up catching three total.. If  you have any Ideas let me know. Thanks.

Its somewhere in the head...You'll have to go on a little treasure hunt the next time you catch one. Some people even make jewelery out of them cause they look like a rough pearl. (Hmmm, my wife's b-day is comming up)

Them pearls are kind of neat. If you shake a drum you can hear it rattle in it.
