East Crooked Structure

4 posts in this topic

I'm coming up to PR again and this time I'm gonna try to hit the eyes up. I've fished on potato and some other area lakes but thinking about trying the Crooked Lakes. I know that East Crooked is really deep and round but it doesn't look like it has a great deal of structure to it. I'm not looking for anyone to tell me where all the rock piles are, just looking to know what the lake has to offer so that I can know how to prepare. Any help would be better than what I know of it now.

Thank You

Tony

P.S.-- I'll try to fill you in on how I did after I get back.

weed edges and sand rock tansition areas are best. stop by Northern Bait in Park Rapids and i will show you some spots that have been good to me. Jonah

So I am back from East Crooked with a mixed report. I only got out fishing on Sat. because of the weather on Friday night. The morning bite was terrible. I had a hard time even marking fish. Later on in the evening was a little better. We pulled in a walleye or two pulling shad raps on the north side in about 20-30 ft of water. We also had some luck with lindy rigs using nightcrawlers. The one issue that we had were keeping the rock bass off. Once again we had a great time and look forward to coming back up again.

Good Luck All

Tony

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!

      Was at Carnilian a few days ago....looked like the front end of a truck went through just in front of the access.
