      I'm a fish biologist- every report, paper, or fish ID book that I have read spells it crappie.

          Where I'm from they are White Perch. Properly spelled Crappie we southerner's also pronounce it with an "A" rather than the long "o".

            I never heard anyone in Alabama call a crappie anything other than pronounced "crop-ie", no "a" sound in the word. Some of you must be from Southern Michigan or somewhere other than Alabama, Mississippi, or Tennessee. LOL

                          I thaught It was Croppie until I started seeing posted hear. Never heard it called Crappie before. Sound's more like sour meat than a fish. I'll eat um no matter how it's spelled.
