Raptor, fished Crystal friday night from 4:30 till 8. Caught about 12-15 walleyes, none big enough to keep. Moved the house Sunday morning hoping to find keepers.

There are some nice fish in the lake. The Wednesday before Christmas a guy got a nice 4 pounder about 50 yards out from the boat ramp. I caught a 28 inch 8 pounder there a couple years ago on New years day.

Has anyone fished around the aerators on Crystal? Heard a rumor they were catching 3-4 pounders around it. Was there last night and caught a bunch of smaller ones. The ice out there is still 12" - 14" 30 yards from it.

Should be a few stragglers out there over 4 lbs. But this lake and Loon for that matter froze out a few years back. Too much paper work to get the aerators turned on in time. The majority of what is being caught now is from the massive re-stocking effort. I'm sure a couple eyes survived the freeze out, and those fish should be 4-5 pounds by now. I doubt there is anything between the predominant year class that people are catching and the few 4-5+ pounders out there. But those 4-5 pounders will be rare for a few more years.

I have had my tip-ups in since 5:30 tonight and just caught a 15" eye at 9. It's been slow the past couple of nights here on Crystal, worried about the cold weather coming. Anyone else?

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.
