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!!

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
