Ever heard of the Crappie? It’s a great little fish to catch during the ice season. These fish can be found all over Southern Ontario, and are great eating! The nice thing about Crappie is they school up in numbers, so if you can find them, they’re easy to catch. Binbrook Conservation is a nice reservoir that holds great numbers of Crappie.
Targeting them in 15 to 20 feet of water should put you on the path to catching a few fish. All you’ll need are a few jigs, tipped with minnows, and you’re all set. Try varying depths off the bottom to find the proper area to catch them. If you have kids, this is a great way to introduce them to ice fishing. Crappies are willing biters, and will keep kids interested. Your kids won’t get bored! It’s a great way to spend time with your family, and make memories that will last a lifetime.
