Crystal Lake in Burnsville

7 posts in this topic

Does anybody know if the northerns and muskies have been biting on Crystal Lake in Burnsville?

I live a few minutes from the lake and haven't heard a whole lot lately. Personally, I have only been on Crystal once since ice out this year so who knows. Low light periods would probably be best time to give it a shot.

I see your live in or near New Prague. There are alot of better lakes near you than Crystal.

Pannies, a few bass is all I caught out of it this year. Add to that a few local kids boating on the lake mooning all the shore fisherman. Some people have no respect.

What other lakes are good for skies and northerns that are closer to new prague than crystal lake (besides cedar) because it is choked full of weeds.

I got one nice muskie out of crystal a couple weeks ago on a deep weedline fishing for bass...

I will have to say Crystal is way better than Cedar this time of the year. The only drawback is the traffic on Crystal. Get out there very early or during the week and you will be just fine. We have also pulled a few nice fish recently. Good luck to you,

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!

      MN DNR is the most authoritative resource even though it may take a little getting used to. You can also study the contours on this website to identify humps and holes.   Minnesota Fishing Contours

      Looking for a freeze up on Friday.  Temps will have been favorable for over a week and then the wind lets up.

      I am not that talented to carve and paint like that. But I love wooden duck decoys.
