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

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
