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 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,

      still love my setup for bluegills but not the best when I use a size 10 jig and fishin for crappies. I might grab the clam springs and rig a rod up with the wire thats a little stiffer and see how it works. this would just be for deep fish.

      Out Sunday ... Looked like a City of Trucks and Castles ... Bite was slow but managed a few Crappies / sonnies on Plastics.   we lost a nice walleye near the hole on a moon jig and crappie minnow.   Might have to go Perching in the shallows on south side of MilLacs this weekend.  Hey Moose ... what ya using for Perch on Millacs shallows 12-18 FOW?

      Was out after work for a couple hours yesterday and got two walleyes to bite. The Landing is getting flooded out. Was kinda hesitant on driving out after seeing all the trucks parking on Shore and taking the long walk out. With all the black ice out there it was a little spooky but after seeing 17" to 19"of good ice  was pretty comfortable with it

      I will be interested to hear of your experience.  Please let us know.    I think the anecdotal evidence was that the service and quality was not up to the premium price, although that could be old news.     "fine dining" has been a tough sell on the lake.   Several places have tried and failed that I am aware of.

      Only fishing for crappies. With a baby at home only get a few hours after work to fish.
