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.

      Never did report back from last weekend.  We fished Friday evening through Sunday morning.  Friday and Saturday were pretty slow, between 5 of us we had about 6 keepers nothing over 15", and were fishing pretty hard, moving a lot.  Got up early Sunday morning and had a great bite on a main lake reef, we ended up keeping a limit between the 3 of us that were out there.  The other two were pretty disappointed they slept in.  We were sitting in 28' of water and caught most of our fish on minnow heads and a rattle jig, as well as a couple slot fish on a shiner under a tip up.

      Are the catfish still biting decent out there? Usually make it up earlier in the year have not made it up yet this year but I'm looking to come up one of the next couple evenings.
