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

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

        We have fished both days out of Vidas.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
