Crystal Lake in Burnsville & Northerns...

4 posts in this topic

If a guy was looking to catch some Pike in Crystal Lake, where would he start? I am looking for a little direction, rather than searching the lake for two hours before I find them. Last weekend I fished Jane and could not keep the hammer handles off my line, and few were even decent size, and fun to catch..

But I am getting the urge to try a different lake...can anyone help?

I'd say hit the island, theres a bay with a little no wake entrance, you can fish the that, and theres a little sunken island not too far from there that is also good. You can also try the bay on the complete opposite side of the lake from the boat launch. Hope for some tigers too, there in there.

I've fished it numerous times for pike and have had great action. I'll tell you the 100 yd. stretch in front of the fishing pier on the left as you leave the access has always produced on the weedline, and fish the point directly across from that. Good Luck

      Had a jake come in at 6:25, thought it was a hen with it putting and cuts.  No gobble or fanning at all.  Caught us by suprise when we seen a little beard.  No bird for Abi yet.

      Finally made it out again.  This time with Abigail.  Bumped 2 birds on the roost walking out.  Hope they weren't toms or there are more near by!   Have heard a couple of gobbles in the distance.  Nothing close.   Good luck
