These waterbodies consistently produce trophy-sized Crappie, also called Calico Bass. The list was compiled using records from MassWildlife’s  Freshwater Sportfishing Awards Program . Keep in mind that these aren't the only places to try your luck. Big fish lurk in all of our ponds, lakes, and rivers.
