Tips for Great Crappie Fishing on Lake of the Woods

We have had a bunch of excitement with the Crappie fishing on Lake of the Woods. It has been enjoyed by the young and old since our opening weekend. Crappie are among the most sought-after game fish by anglers at Lake of the Woods. They are widespread throughout the lake, very abundant and excellent table fare.

Crappie reproductive behavior should be of interest to anglers, since most crappie are caught in the spring. Black and white crappie are members of the sunfish family, along with bass and bream. In all species of this family, the males hollow out nests and guard the eggs and young fish. Crappie build their nests close together but usually in smaller groups than bream.

Crappie Fishing Tips

Crappie nest earlier than other members of the sunfish family, generally when the water temperature is between 60 and 65 degrees F.

Use the lightest weight jig weather conditions will allow, and tip with a live minnow.

Crappie fishing is a great way to introduce kids to the wonders of Canadian fishing and share some unforgettable times together.
