Crappie can be caught in this area of Lake of the Woods, however, they are a secondary species of fish here. Early in the year, anglers do find some crappie as they move into the shallows to spawn. The weeds in the bays will usually hold some fish. As water temperatures warm up in the summer, crappie will move deeper and become harder to find. They will usually stay deep through the fall with some fish going shallower as water temperatures get more comfortable. If you can find some of these schools in the deeper water in the summer and fall, you can catch some very nice fish. However, you can very easily go look for them and have a hard time finding them.
