which one did you pick and how did you do? Crystal Lake in Burnsville?

Given the region, looks like maybe Crystal lake in Robbinsdale??? Lots of little crappies, can fish half the shoreline from shore, and not big, like 70-80 acres. I have had a litte luck out there this spring, seems like they prefer the northeast corner by the pier, which is a popular shore fishing location. But nothing big enough to keep.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.
