MILLBROOK, AL (WSFA) -
Some of the top fishermen in the country were in town in March for the Bass Pro Shops Crappie Masters Elite Tournament. They fished the Alabama river and Lake Jordan. All the guys agree it's a great place to catch the tasty fish. But they don't agree on how to say it.
"Crappie (crappy) is how you say it and that's it," said South Carolina fisherman Matthew Outlaw. "There's no "O" in the word, it's not croppy, it's crappie." Others disagree. If you're from Alabama you say it crappie (croppy)," said another pro from Florida.
It seems like how you say it depends on where you are from. But some call this feisty little fish something totally different. "Some folks down in Florida call them specs," said Crappie Masters president Paul Alpers. "In Mississippi, it's white perch. And in Louisiana the are sac-au-lait."
Wow! Five names for one fish, and apparently there are more. But this is the Crappie Masters (pronounced croppy by organizers) tournament, and one thing they all agree on, when you don't catch any fish, it's a crappie day!
