Hi Italo i what would be the best bait to use for crappie in the welland river and do you know if the fish are safe to eat

Hi Mike…Some guys like to use a small live minnow, but I prefer to use a 1/8 oz. jihead/1″ TriggerX plastic grub. If you have a look at the Rapala Canada 2014 Catalog, http://rapala.ca/sites/rapalabrand.com/files/u995/2014%20Summer%20Web.pdf , and look at pg.130-133 you will see their excellent selection of “panfish grubs”. I fish these with a slip-bobber rig only 1 1/2-3′ below the surface. The crappie fishing should be good now if the river is not too murky. Any areas where there there is flow going into the main river will attract crappie like, mouth of creeks, canals, & even drainage ditches…God bless you, Italo
