Quoted text from wiki...

"The common name (also spelled croppie or crapp), derives from the Canadian French (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_French) crapet, which refers to many different fishes of the sunfish family. Other names for crappie are papermouths, strawberry bass, speckled bass or specks (especially in Michigan (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michigan)), speckled perch, calico bass (throughout New England (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_England)),[3] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crappie#cite_note-3) sac-a-lait (in southern Louisiana (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louisiana), lit. "milk bag", a rendition of Choctaw sakli)[4] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crappie#cite_note-4) and Oswego bass."

So now when someone asks how the fishing was we say it was "Beer" instead of "Crappie" Oh well.
