Yes, it is similar to the snails/escargots thing. But then I know a guy who once asked me what "ess car gots" was. I told him they were slugs, not the kind fired by guns. He understood.

Actually, it is a regional type dialect pronunciation. I've heard the fish name pronounced both ways depending on where I am fishing. In Florida they told me they were called "Specks". However, the species also varies by region as well.

All I know is they are hard to catch if you are not fishing at the right time of year. If you are, you can catch them one after another. I drift in the shallows when fishing for them in the early spring.

In Alabama Bream are called Brim. I never heard of Crappie until I moved here, and then all the guys at work would talk about Croppie. So I just looked it up, and as Dwayne said both pronunciations are correct according to the dictionary. Same for Bream/Brim.

I think I've caught Crappie in NY but we always called them Sunfish (of which they are a variety).
