Crappies are also known by many New Englanders as calico bass. Keep in mind that the listed waterbodies below aren't the only places where big fish are found. Not all anglers submit their big catches to MassWildlife and big fish lurk in many other bodies of water! When available, links to a pond map or specific website are included.
