Crystal Lake in Burnsville & Northerns...

Recommended Posts

Alan

If a guy was looking to catch some Pike in Crystal Lake, where would he start? I am looking for a little direction, rather than searching the lake for two hours before I find them. Last weekend I fished Jane and could not keep the hammer handles off my line, and few were even decent size, and fun to catch..

But I am getting the urge to try a different lake...can anyone help?

I'd say hit the island, theres a bay with a little no wake entrance, you can fish the that, and theres a little sunken island not too far from there that is also good. You can also try the bay on the complete opposite side of the lake from the boat launch. Hope for some tigers too, there in there.

I've fished it numerous times for pike and have had great action. I'll tell you the 100 yd. stretch in front of the fishing pier on the left as you leave the access has always produced on the weedline, and fish the point directly across from that. Good Luck

      It is my understanding that Pepin ice went out with the assist of the Coast Guard ice breaker.

      The ice was very crystallized last night but still 20+ inches.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.
