Crappies on Crystal?

6 posts in this topic

Wondering if there is anything going on Crystal(Burnsville) right now for crappies. I know perennially they are small, but don't need much to keep my 9 yr old happy. Any thoughts are appreciated! Thanks

Have not fished Crytal in a couple of months but every year in the past finding the crappies have been no problem. Try right out in front of the beach, in between the beach and the island. There probably will be plenty of people out there. Good luck!!!

I SECOND THE LOW LIGHT HOURS. MY BEST LUCK WAS IN FRONT OF THE ACCESS ALSO. They were in the 20' to 25' area. BUT THE LAST TWO TIMES THEY SEEM TO BE IN THE 12' TO 15'. Minnows are the best bet so far. Give it a go and have some fun.....><(((*>

I fished out there one evening. I got bored with catching small ones. I must have caught 50 all under 6" in 2 hours. I kept moving spots hoping for better size and never found it. I was told by guys with permanents that if you pick through enough you will find a few decent sized ones.

Thanks for the help guys! I'll be out on Saturday with my daughter. I'll have a black Dodge Ram and a black Otter flip over. If you're out, stop by and say howdy.

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      6 inch that is a 4.5 inch

      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?
