Are they crop-e or crap-e in your neck of the woods?Crap-e here in North Carolina.

Crap-e just sounds nasty and is more of a northern pronounciation I think... they're crop-e here in 'Bama, for most people anyway.

"Sounds Nasty?" Nothing wrong with a good crap. Crappie here in Georgia. No O in Crappie. Some here try to pronounce as Croppie with an O sound. They have seen too many videos and tv shows. It's like Pecan. There is no O in Pecan.

There are some who call them specks or sun trout. When I was growing up in SE Ga that's what they were called.

They will always be specks to me. I don't think I'll ever be able to call them by the "C" word. Besides that, I've never had one come when I called it anyway!:D

They are "On the hook!" whatever you call them. I like "Crop ee"

Here in Louisiana they are either white perch or sac au lait. But no matter what you call them they are still good to eat.

Here in Indiana its croppie. I was working a sport and travel show and I think it was in Nashville. I had to go to the show office, and on the way back I was stuck behind a young couple for a good 5 minutes. Both of them were saying "no hun its pronounced this way". I was finally able to ditch them. Made it to our booth and about 20 minutes later guess who walked up to me. He explained he was from the south and she was from the north so what is the proper way to say it. Both of them had daggers in their eyes thinking "you better say it my way". Yeah, no win situation for me. I thought for a few seconds and said the proper way is pomoxis annnularis. Both of their mouths dropped open, looked at each other scratching their heads and walked away. I think that was the end of the argument.

Up here, if you can catch them every day, they're crap-ee's. If you only fish weekends, they're " those d*** fish " :D

It's kinda like the way we say it down here in 'Bama... 'cept it takes us a little longer to say it.:D

Have often heard the term "papermouths" down South, only a couple times around home (Ohio), mostly it`s pronounced "croppies" generally ...or "YUMM!" after turning golden brown, with homemade hush puppies...
