How's your regions tounge when it comes to saying crappie? Do you hear/say Crap-pe or Crop-ee more? I hear Crap-pe more often.

Or perhaps you hear these instead: papermouths, strawberry bass, speckled bass or specks, speckled perch, calico bass, sacaulait, oswego

Sac-a-lait, or white perch. Don't ask me why, they aren't perch and they aren't white.

The people I talk to say Crappie, although a few dictionaries I just checked say Croppie is correct. I generally hear Croppie only on TV.

Of all the nicknames for this fish, the one most frequently heard around here is Strawberry Bass. I've never heard or seen sac-a-lait except on forum discussions like this. Nobody ever says "I went sac-a-lait fishing today."

I wouldn't doubt Croppie is better TV word, I do find it amusing when a mom walks her kids out by the water and asks if we're catching anything, "some crap-pe" with her kids chuckle and the moms face beet red :laugh5:

Was at Guntersville last month. A conversation with a woman in the elevator at the hotel went like this

"Been fishing?"
"Yep, been here all week."
"Crappie?"
"Yep. Fishing's been crappy all week."
"I meant are you fishing for crappie?"
Is "basstiality" the same as sleeping with the fishes?

Everyone I know calls them Crappies, or Calico Bass, I have heard Strawberry Bass used a time or two as well. The only time I hear them called Croppies is also on TV. Usually by people fromt he south, the Lindners or In-fisherman guys call them Crappies.
I am not afraid to suck.

Back home (Oklahoma) we pronounce it "crop-ee". While we're at it, we also call white bass "sand bass", and all bluegills, shellcrackers, pumpkinseeds, etc. are called "perch".
If you think you deserve something, you probably don't deserve anything.

I hear the word crappie all the time to the point I accidentally started saying it now too.

Calico Bass are a saltwater bass. Why would anyone call it that. I live in California and have only heard them called croppie and people that don't know fish say crappie.
