Crappie fishing in Maine

For all its fishing opportunities, Maine has very limited crappie fishing. Three major lakes, Great Pond, Sebasticook Lake and Sebago Lake have reasonably good populations of crappie. Some private ponds may also have a small population.

Crappie are actually a member of the sunfish family and can be found in many Maine lakes. Crappie are known by many different local names. Paper mouth, goggleye, bridge perch, slabs and speckled perch, are just a few.
