Along with the photo, include the name of the body of water where it was caught, location (address, closest bridge, or other landmarks), and date it was caught.

A biologist will get back to you with an identification. 

Not only will you learn about the fish that you caught, you might also be providing valuable distribution information for the species to the DNR.
