Crooked lake

Realtor Boy

Recommended Posts

I used to to this lake alot when I was a kid, but now for the past 10yrs or so I have just driven past it to go to other lakes. Has anyone had much luck for any keeper size fish yet this year???

I know most of the action is out by the point straight out.

Its hard to get anything in the lake with some size... It seems to get hit hard all winter long, the way people piled in there for the stocked walleyes was hilarious! I was out there yesterday and had some fun catching tiny sunfish after tiny sunfish... There are some nicer sized fish in there, unfortunatly there just not common...

Been out here twice this year, decent sunnies and crappies,but you gotta sort through them. Also a couple of walleyes not worth keeping.

I've lived in Andover my whole life, are you talking about the crooked lake in andover!? A 22 pound northern pike came out of there!? I've fished there for years and a pike of any size is hard to come by, i cant believe someone got a big one like that out of there!!

Wow, that is pretty impressive! With how activley Northerns generally hit and the bass pressure that the lake sees, its nice to know a few nicer fish survived! Maybe its not really the 10 houses piled out on the point last year that took all the 11" walleyes, it could have been the Northerns snacking!! smile.gif

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
