Thanks Ion66 they do seem to be an elusive fish. Not sure where they hide

In mid June, July and August during the day you will find very small schools of big crappie where you catch big crappie ice fishing. There might only be 2 or 3 big crappie in those spots, that is why so many people do not bother fishing for crappie in the summer. The bigger the crappie the fewer you will find together in one spot. There are thousands of big big big crappie out there in the Kawarthas, but they basically travel in pairs or trios after they get bigger than 15 to 16 inches. There in fact may only be one in a certain area. If you would like to catch more than a few but don't mind the crappie being 8 or 9 inches long try the deep weed beds near the trenches. If you want to catch a monster crappie wait until Sept. Oct. Nov. and come fish with me at night. Better bring a lunch though we could be out for 18 hours at a time. Giant crappie do not follow a schedule.

Panfish on a light rod is the bomb! Totally underrated. I would love catching slabs all day instead of bass! Great catch!!

I shore fish mostly so i hope to come across something like this!
