West Crooked Lake

5 posts in this topic

Anyone ever fish this lake? My family and I will be at West Crooked Lake Resort the first full week in August. There are lots of great lakes in the area - that's for sure, but has anyone fished West Crooked? I'm not looking for spots or anything.. just wondering what people have caught...

Thanks!

I've fished it a few times. Shallow and fertile describes it. It was good for lots of smaller northerns, and panfish. There are bass also. Its a great lake to take kids. Lots of action. East crooked is real deep and clear. There's some real trophy walleyes in it, but you would need to fish them at night. Good luck.

It's a great lake for the family.....you should not have a hard time finding fish. Lots of panfish as iffy said to keep the kids really entertained. And there are some bigger fish if you look hard enough. You'll have fun......hope the new resort owners work out for you.......

Thanks for the info! If we don't find the bigger fish we'll have to hit a bunch of the other lakes in the area- there are a lot to choose from.. that's for sure! At the very minimum I'll have to stop and see Jonah and get any pertinent info!

      when i fish for pike or muskie i use 40-50lb braid and an 80# fluoro leader about 12" that I make myself...never had a bite-off and have reused leaders over and over again...oh, and have caught plenty with this set up

      Should I look for the cats more in deep holes now or more in shallow by bridges etc. Don't want your spot just general info. I know they can be any where but I'm thinking deep? Also would fat heads be a good choice now.

      Well my ice season ended, it was an extremely short year, with not alot of opportunity to get out. Still caught some good fish and had some good times with friends, enjoy the video!

      I'very never heard of anyone getting into them.  But I do see them cutting the surface early morning or evening.  Might be able to get a few on a fly rod.
