Ontario Black Crappie

Spreading faster than a wildfire the Black Crappie is now home to hundreds of Ontario Lakes and Rivers. With a recent population explosion they have quickly become a favorite amongst ice anglers for their hard fight and excellent taste. Limits vary from zone to zone but a productive outing can often produce numbers well into the fifties!

On traditional light tackle the Crappie provides an awesome fight for its size and average size can vary from half to one pound. The 'slab's as they are lovingly called taste similar to Perch and a good outting in springtime or winter can produce a nice feast. Found in shallow waters during the spring season the Crappie will slowly migrate to deeper water with gradual temperature increases.


The Ontario record for the Crappie is 3.6lbs.
