I was just reading some Louisiana Sportsman articles and they were calling Redears, Chinquapins. Anyone ever heard of this?


We come from North California and South Alabam and little towns all across this land.

Yup, besides my Dad's half of the fam being from EasTex, I have an aunt and her fam that's from Louisiana. Heard, caught and cleaned quite a few "chinquapins". They also sometimes call them stump knockers. Might be a bit of origin there.


Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless His Holy Name!

I have heard Florida Bream and Shell Crackers a lot. Pretty common terms in Texas and Florida.
