Mystery Madtom

Recently I caught a madtom on the Mississippi river near the town of Wolford MN near highway 6. I caught it at 11 PM using a pyramid sinker and a nightcrawler in moderate current. Right now I think it is either a Stonecat or a Tadpole Madtom, but I'm not sure. Any help would be appreciated.

I'd say its a Tadpole Madtom

I'd say its a Tadpole Madtom.  But the pics aren't the best for ID.  If its a tadpole its a big one.  Most of the time when you see a big one like that its a Stonecat.  But its head looks more tadpole like to me.  And its tail appears to be rounded.

I'd be fairly confident calling that a tadpole madtom.  The head just looks right...

Thank you so much for the

Thank you so much for the replies. I will log it as a tadpole madtom in my lifelist.
