    Which is a black and which is a white or are these both blacks or both whites? Thanks for the help.

  4. I have to post one more time to submit URL link
  5. This applies to the second post of pictures you put on. The bottom is a black crappie and the top is a white crappie.
  6. I agree. I am counting 5-6 dorsal rays on the first one and at least 7 on the second one.
  7. I agree that the bottom is the Black and the top is the White. They both taste the same to me, I'm not predjudice...

    Did anyone notice the URL included a hybrid crappie? I didn't know they could cross! I've seen hybrid sunfish, they seem to be more naturally occurring than other hybrids.
  10. Yeah, I kind of wondered about that one. I really didn't know they could cross either. I wonder if that is some sort of forced cross-breeding? It would seem that if they could cross that most lakes would have all hybrids eventually since there is such an abundance of both species in many lakes.

    It must be a southern thang.
  12. I did a quick search and saw it mentioned for stocking in ponds. Something was mentioned about a lower reproduction rate. Other than that I have no clue as to whether they occur naturally.

    thanks for the help guys. the link also showed a black nose crappie. I caught 1 last year from Caesars Creek and it was cool to look at. First one I ever seen.
