Crappie


Crappie are secondary here on many of the lakes and in the river systems.  However, there is some good fishing for crappie here on some of the waters if you choose to target them.  They are usually under fished as most anglers are here for walleye and smallmouth bass.  If you do fish for them, target them in the shallower bays in the spring and early summer and you’ll have a lot more success.  The bite is better on the deeper weed lines in the summer, but many of these fish will school up in open water making them harder to find and catch.  The Seine River system is where many anglers go if they are looking for crappie in this area.
