Ontario Canada Crappie Fishing

The most popular artificial bait available is the jig. Thousands of varieties of jigs are available. While some fisherman swear by a certain type, color, or size, the smart fisherman’s tackle box contains a variety. Each unique situation you find yourself in should warrant a different type of jig. Since each part of a jig is separate, you can add variety to your bait by using different color heads, with different colors bodies and tails. The number of different colors variations are almost endless. Jigs also make it easy to change bait. Simply change the body on the jig head and you are finished. Another advantage is the fact that new bait does not have to be tied on each time you catch a fish.

Poles and Line

Because of the nature of Crappie, pretty much any pole will suffice. However, beware as Crappie do not put up an admirable fight like other freshwater fish do. Sometimes, you may not even know that you caught a Crappie unless you are paying close attention. This is the main reason a lightweight pole should be used. Cane poles are a good option if you are on a small budget. Cane pole sets can be found at just about any department stores fishing department or outdoors store.

When buying line for you pole, be sure to use a minimum of 4 pound line. It is rare that you will find a Crappie this large, but there are also a large number of other types of fish in Canada waters, such as Bass and Walleye. If by chance you hook another type of fish, you want to be able to get the fish in without loosing your rig.
