I've never liked the word crappies; they are speckled perch hereabouts, and I've always fished for them in the cooler months. I think they taste just fine...Geo

Yup. Well, some do. I just call'em roaches. We also call shiner baitfish roaches. We do not hold either in high regard...Geo

I never knew a speckled perch was really a crappie until I saw a picture of one in a magazine. And what's worse, some people call them croppies. If you're going to say it, say crap-pie, not crop-pie. If they're crappy, just say so.

Gil's confusion about how to spell speckled perch is understandable because he's a Francophile at heart. Stan must have grown up watching yankee fishing shows on the TV...Geo

In these parts Stan, most fishermen pronounce the word croppie. I Googled "crappie pronunciation audio" and got the result with the pronunciation spelled out as "kraa-pee", and if you click on the face, there is an audio clip that you can play fast or slow. I couldn't post a workable link, just a screenshot.

Another result had this to say:

Why is crappie pronounced Croppie?
The word crappie comes from Canadian French crapet “sunfish.” Speakers of English borrowed the word first as crappé [krop-é], pronounced like “crop-ay,” which then spawned the variant croppie [króp-e].


I also found a YouTube video that pronounced the word as "crappie", but many of the comments that followed vehemently disputed that version.

I've never eaten them caught from very warm waters, so they have always tasted great to me. I guess that you could say I have never tasted a crappy crappie. But none compare to the cheek meat from a walleye. Now that is a delicacy.

I'd say that just about covers it, Keith. Thank you! Not sure I'd prefer them to fresh-caught Walleye, but it's been awhile.

Open that link and the message is: "Start Resizing and Cropping". How would you pronounce that?

I've eaten croppie.....errrr crappie from the lakes here in N ID that I can't imagine, any fresh water, white fleshed fish tasting better! I have eaten crappie given to me, that were caught in mid-late summer from the Snake river that tasted like mud! I don't think I've heard anyone in these parts, pronounce it any other way than croppie.
