Anyone care to get a newbie to the lake started? I don't need any secrets, but a starting place and/or any areas to avoid would be nice grin.gif

Bursville Crystal......... EAST end is good for pan fish and northern. Fish between the swimming beach and the little island. You can't miss it . There will be a little village there in a few days

The bite is best after dark.

It's really not too far actually, I live very close to the lake as well and just have a 2man portable that i drag out on foot. I reccomend the lake though, good fishing.

Go straight out from the park in about 10-12 ft of water and set up tip-ups with large minnows and hang on if one goes off, very large muskies in Crystal lake in Robinsdale

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
