Crystal Lake (Dakota Co.)


Recommended Posts

Anyone been out on Crystal Lake? If so any advice on where to set up. I will be bringing my 5 and 7 year old boys out in the afternoon and would like them to see some action. Thanks

During the day go to the island area. Consistent sunnies and occasional perch and crappie all day long. Take a tip-up for yourself and set it shallow right against the island. You'll have a shot at huge winter bass, pike or tiger muskie. My biggest winter bass (4lbs+) came from the thick weeds 5' on a 6" sucker close up to the island. The action wont be hot on the tip-ups but you might get a flag or two.

Afternoon and evening go straight out of the boat landing to the summer fishing pier. Look for 20' of water and the small crappies should be too far behind. They will be anywhere from 7' to the bottom.

Decided to go out today at 3:30 for an hour before work about 100 yards from the fishing pier didnt try too hard popped one hole and caught sunnies and crappies consistenly on euros and waxies in 20 fow. Unfortunately when I was leaving me being dumb I thought my car would be able to make it off the ice alright even with all the snow we got today well I got stuck for a good 15 minutes until a very nice gentleman help push me off with his truck I wanted to keep my momemtum going so I didnt get out and thank him personally so if you re a FM user THANK YOU SO MUCH I appreciate your help, if you see this shoot me an email my family own liquor store in the area so Ill get you a free case of beer of your choice or w/e you want. Thanks again and its nice to know there's usually someone on the ice that is willing to lend a helping hand.

Mr fish not really worried about a heater as long as it works, let me know when you re free and we'll work something out. I'm for anything as long as we re catching fish.

Meeting up at the parking lot where the playground and the summer fishing dock is would probably be best... Maybe a bag of chips or something to snack on

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.

      Now you know darn well your not in Boston....unless there's a Boston in russia?😂😂😂 How's life over there?💩.

      The creek  bite has been nothing short of awesome as we come to the end of Sep.... Some days are definitely better than others, but even the slow days plenty of fish can be caught if you put in a little time and effort.   3 and 4 inch z-man plastics as well as grub style plastics have been getting the job done for me again this week.  Also been using some number 5 shad raps just to change things up a bit... 😁
