Dan DannenmuellerFall is here and with it will comes a change in the weather and especially the Crappie Fishing. It’s the time of the year when the Crappie really start leaving their summer haunts and fattening up on the plentiful food supply before it turns really cold.

I have just returned from a wonderful trip to Canada to film a Crappie show with my partner, Garrett Steele, which is hosted by one of the biggest popular fishing names and brands in Canada, Bob Izumi. The footage will show sometime next spring all across Canada and eventually on the internet.

As we soon learned, Crappie fishing in Canada is a hidden gold mind. We fished on Lake of the Woods and had a banner day catching numerous Black Crappies up to 15 inches. They are so colorful with predominate yellow and black colorations.

It took us a couple of hours to locate them using our electronics, but we found them in 20- 21 feet of water literally inches above the bottom and in considerable numbers. We tried all kinds of jigs, plastics, etc. but finally caught numbers on the Johnson Fishing Thin Fisher and related spoons.

We were so fortunate to be able to stay at the Crystal Harbor and Birch Island Resorts where the shore lunches, dinners and great accommodations were second to none. The scenery there is breath taking and the fishing superb. Watch for more ice fishing and northern Crappie articles in future editions.

God Bless and Good Fall Fishing,

Dan
