It came from my own mouth, I fished for bass mainly, so when I was fishing for crappie I made it up. We are prob. the only ones that call them that.

How about the basic names of white and black crappie?

Specked crappie is the only other one I can think of.

Interesting thread LakeRaider. There are a number of other species of fish with multiple names. I guess it depends on where you live or grew up.

crappie

Not actually another name but 22-30 inch muskies often call 5-8 inch crappie lunch;)

I look for overall crappie size to increase at Alum Creek lake since the introduction of muskies there. At Piedmont lake crappies are almost non existent mostly due to poor spawning habitat but partially due to high muskie population.

At some lakes where brushpiles are submerged to create crappie habitat the population of crappies is maintained.

Take a look at what I found near a brushpile for crappies.



This was not a coincidence since I have repeated the same results over and over:cool:



Locating brushpiles is my first priority when fishing a new lake for flatheads.

Another name

I've heard them referred to as Striper Candy too. Where you fish too, at Brookville, Lakeraider ! Stripes wouldn't touch a shad, only wanted "candy"

Your right

Back in the old days at B-ville when only suckers were legal for stripers, somehow a crappie would end up on the business end of the rig. lol. Raider:"
