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

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.

      Bass, especially Smallmouth Bass.   Why are they my favorite? A symptom of growing up along the Mississippi I would imagine.  The walk along the shores of The Miss. have given me pretty much every species that swims here.  Nothing get me more excited than the acrobatics or the will of a Smallmouth.   In open water I just seem more drawn to grab the bass bag and chase bass more than other species.  Come fall, it will be tunnel vision, bronzebacks.

      Bass.   It’s what I find myself fishing for the most. I can fish for em anywhere and there are SO many different ways to target them.  Anything from finessing to big, bold bites and big hooksets.  Even if you’re not catching much you can at least entertain yourself with precise casting practice for certain presentations.
