Picture of a Black Crappie. Flati and silvery in appearance and marked with irregular dark spots, the crappie is a very attractive and desirable fish. The black crappie has 7 or 8 eight spines in the dorsal fin. It prefers clear water conditions.

White Crappie

Picture of a White Crappie. Looks similar to the black crappie but only has 5 or 6 spines in the dorsal fin. The dark spots on its sides are consolidated into vertical bars. The white crappie is more tolerant of turbid water than the black crappie and well suited to reservoirs such as Lake Tschida and Patterson Lake.
