Crappie & Bluegill fishing “ON” in southern Ontario.

Posted on May 1st, 2018

It’s Crappie & Bluegill fishing time!! With shoreline temperatures starting to warm up, crappie are moving in. This is the time to target shallow, mud bottom  shorelines out from cattails, canals, and especially shallow mud-bottom bays with lot’s of docks.

Daytime fishing should be excellent as long as you locate the fish. You can use small live minnows, but a 1/16-1/8 oz jig with a small plastic grub like the Lunker City Hellgies will produce plenty of good size crappy. Best set-up is a slip-bobber rig on 4-6 lb. test line and a 4 lb. Sufix fluorocarbon leader. No need to work the jig/plastic grub, just cast it out and give you float a small twitch every once and a while and watch the float go under!
