        I always thought it was croppie because crappie doesnt fit. They taste good, and are fun to catch since you can just pull them int o the boat. Godd for younger fishermen/women

          Linguistics experts may not always agree, but "crappie" sounds alright to me.

                  Teufelhunden has it right. We call 'em specks too.
                  Difference between a white and black crappie- its the number spines on their dorsal fin (top fin) White Crappie have 6 spines, Black has 7 or 8.

                        It's crappie but it really doesn't matter it's your own preference. Good luck fishin'!

                          Croppie where I come from, same as in Merriam-Webster's dictionary. Still throws me whenever I hear someone say crappie. So how do you pronounce Rapala?
