Black Crappie (Pomoxis nigromaculatus)

Description: 

The Black Crappie is widespread across central and eastern North America from Texas to Canada, including the Mobile Basin, Tennessee, and Cumberland river drainages. They have been introduced widely because of their popularity as a sport fish. They live in a variety of habitats in association with structure. Black Crappies can be distinguished from White Crappies by having a longer dorsal fin.
