Trips, top kicker, is decidely more than a bluff catcher on the river unless you know something about this opponent that you're not telling us.
Given the size of his bet on the turn, I like a call. His bet could mean any number of things, including just second-barrelling a trash hand, barrelling AJ to not let you get a free six-outer, or barrelling 66 for the same reason, or just value-towning you with T9s.
With the information that we have on the turn, we can't fold when we're getting 3:1. Once we know that he bets the river we might second-guess our turn decision (since it now seems very likely that he has a hand like AK) but we didn't know that on the turn.
