Crystal Lake - by Lakeville

Recommended Posts

Guest

I have been on Crystal once so far this year and it was slow I don't think there are any walleye in there but there is suppose to be northern but I have never had much luck on that lake. I think it used to be good but got over fished, just my opinion. Tons of small panfish though. Some of jetskiers have really been rude out there also. There were two a while back that were jumping each others wakes in the no wake zone.

Mr Special

CycloneFisherman,
Welcome to the forum. Crystal has good bass, northerns, tons of stunted sunnies and crappies but they're are keeper to be had and even some really nice muskies. Don't know of the walleye though. But if you soak a sucker minnow off the fishing dock on the north side you should catch something nice. Try about 6'-10' down and cast to the left from the left side of the dock.

Good luck

Has anyone been fishing Crystal Lake lately? I have been going quite a bit and getting skunked from shore. Granted I have been fishing for Northern/Wallye and I know there are not a lot of them out there.

I will take a moment to vent as well. I have been fishing from shore on Crystal which is a pretty small lake. And people with HUGE boats have been going 100 miles an hour in circles. And get pretty close to shore. Kinda upsetting.

I am new to the south metro and Crystal is just convenient. Are there more productive shore fishing areas in the south metro i should try?

Thanks.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
