Crappie (Croppie, Bachelor, New Light, Campbellite, Saca-lait, Chinquapin Perch, Bridge Perch, Goggle-Eye, Tin Mouth, Speckled Perch, Shad, John Demon, etc.): Caught on light Black Bass tackle in the Mississippi Valley and the Southern States, with worm and minnow bait. Frequents all running streams and lakes, around old snags or inlets. Is a ready biter. Weighs up to three pounds; one-pound specimens are more common. This fish to the Southern angler is what the Strawberry Bass (northern croppie) is to the rodman of the North and West.
