If u don't find carp on crystal you could always hit lake wisconsin also as its right there. I have been seeing guys carp shooting out there for the last week. Don't know of their success however.

Having a tournament on a body of water this size is ridiculous.

I think fish and mud lakes just down the road would be a better bet

I am not positive about all tournaments on Crystal this year, but I know Schoepps puts on tourneys here. Call Dale for more information at: Dale Schoepp, 608-643-6396

But, if you are curious and have a few minutes, go to this link:

http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/fishing/tournaments/

You can see every tournament approved by the DNR for any body of water. But, you do need to keep in mind that many tournaments keep their boat count 19 or less so they dont have to register with the DNR, so the calendar with the tourneys on the DNR site isnt exactly complete. Hope that helps!

not a report, but rather a question.

Last year I remember seeing a bass tournament on this lake, but don't know who put it on. Does anyone know of any tournaments on this lake for this upcoming year?

TIA

Pretty decent crappie and perch bite today. Fishing in 11 FOW, fish were suspended a bit and fairly aggressive, all fish released. Waxies were the trick. Question, is it common to catch crappies over 8-9"? Having trouble finding bigger then the 9 inch mark.

Fished for about 3 hours tonight. Took awhile to figure out what the fish wanted. Started using a tip down with minnow, jig with waxie, and jig with spikes and a minnow head. Started switching everything until I finally found what they were biting on. Small red glow jig tipped with a waxie and charging the glow jig frequently. Fished in 11-12 FOW with most fish being marked between 8-10 FOW. Finished the night with 6 crappies all over 8", all released.

If you are fishing for Northern Pike, Fish Lake is the place to go. There is a fisheree this Saturday so it will be packed with people.
