Crooked Lake?

9 posts in this topic

Anybody know any reports of crooked lake? I was out there a couple days ago and didn't have much luck, a lot of small gills and perch. I fished about 150 yards out from the launch. I noticed a bunch of houses further out toward the point, but I didn't go that far. This lake is real close to my house and I fish it a lot in the summer for bass, but I never really fish for anything else. Just wondering what people are catching.

I saw all those houses also when I was out there Sunday with my snowmobile. All I can think of is there is a bid drop off at that last point and they are getting Walleye and Crappies. The panfish are really small and so are the northerns you catch. I am just like you I fish it in the summer for Bass and there are some lunkers in there. I have caught many many BIG bass in that lake over the years.

I went out last night for a couple of hours. Pulled in 2 small crappies and a small gill. Tried by where all those houses are, but still didn't have much luck. And yeah the bass fishing is great. I took my little brother out who is nine and he caught his first lunker at 5 lbs. Thought he was going to get pulled into the water. Now he's hooked and wants to go fishin every day. Thought about takin him out to crooked just cause it's close but I'd like to also have a fish fry too.

Those houses are all sitting out there because again 1 person caught a nice stocked 'eye out there or even worse, they're still living in last year when some people were getting walleyes out there... Problem was is the DNR only put so many in and now they're all gone for the most part! It is funny though driving by there and seeing all the houses on it like its Mille Lacs or something...

It got walleyes stocked in 2001, 2003, and 2005. Each time the DNR stocked fry and fingerlings.

      Went up north today with @eyeguy 54 and we found plenty of ice if the access would have been better we would have driven out. We fished hard as both of us have similar fishing styles. We jump hole to hole picking off the aggressive fish with plastics. The wind did not do us any favors but we still caught a good number of fish. If eyeguy took photos maybe he will post em. Thank you eyeguy for the call I wanted to get out fishing today.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.
