Yes, there is a fish called crappy (pronounced croppy). Having never eaten one, I can't go any further.

I'm not sure even the new and improved pronunciation makes it sound any more tempting!

I love crappy. An area restaurant here fries it somewhat like catfish is fried. They do a fabulous job and it's a yummy meal.

When I lived in Minnesota, my grandfather used to fish for crappy. My grandmother pan-cooked the filets in a little butter, seasoned lightly with salt and pepper. A squeeze of fresh lemon juice and yum, yum, yum!

I cannot believe I accidently unsuscribed to this. How did I manage that? Thank you for telling me some wonderful things about southeren IL. We almost settled in Bardstown, KY as well. One thing I couldn't come up with at the moment: Our part of Illinois is real cheese country. I mean the good stuff. The basics are made around here, but people are getting more artisiinal and making some truly wonderful aged cheese. I live in the "tri-state-area", meaning that Iowa, Wisconsin, and Illinois are all within spitting distance. Great cheese, pork, and veal (where you have cheese, you have veal). Yummmmmmmy

Just for giggles, I thought I'd compile a Top Ten list of why Ohio is the most unique place in the world, good or bad. Anybody else up for it?
  1. The Carter Family.
  2. Home of the Delta Blues, in the style of Robert Johnson and Blind Lemon Jefferson (a Texican, but didn't know it cuz he couldn't read the signs), They've been honored and copied by folks like Muddy Waters, Eric Clapton, and The Rolling Stones.
  3. BB King!!
  4. Electic blues taken from the Delta to Chicago by the likes of Muddy Waters.
  5. Memphis Grizzlies :The NBA repeat champs in '08 and '09
  6. University of Memphis Tigers
  7. University of Tennessee Volunteers, Fair bit East, but we still pride on 'em.
  8. Shine, Tennessee Whiskey, and Kentucky Bourbon. It's a regional thing. Buck, I'd bet you've seen a TN. bottle passed more than once.
  9. Beale Street
  10. Davey Crocket
