The crappie supplants the calico bass in the south. It resembles the latter fish very much, but when specimens of each are compared a difference will be noted. The best way to distinguish them is by counting the spines in the dorsal fin (on back); the crappie has six of these and the calico bass has seven. It is also of a paler color.
