Crystal Lake (Burnsville)

3 posts in this topic

Has anyone been fishing Crystal Lake? I will be out there Saturday for a couple hours for panfish and pike and am wondering about ice conditions or good places to start searching. Any info would be much appreciated.

I live a block from Crystal and fish it quite a bit with my son. The crappie action is normally fast and furious around the evening hours. Normally the crappies are pretty small but they do provide some action. I have friends that do ok on tip-ups out there for northerns. Best place to start is right out in front of the beach between the shore and the island. You can't miss it as there is always 5-10 shacks out there. Good luck and have fun!!

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
