Fish sandwich i think your on the wrong thread. This crystal lake is east of pardeeville about 2 miles.
i wonder if the lime stone off of the camp ground that they filled the lake shore line with has more to do with it than the faulty septics the ph level is off the charts
Um, more like faulty septics have ruined the lake. This lake used to be a fish factory. It was also crystal clear, believe it or not. The fish are not stunted, they are sick.

Ice was very iffy. Had to ease around due to cracking and popping. The warmth has destroyed the ice here already. 0-2 on flags and nothing on jigs. Tried a dozen + hole before getting pushed off due to worsening ice and loss of shore ice.

Crystal is known to us locals as "fish-a-day" as in 1/day. I live a mile away but rarely drop a line out due to the long hike, carrying gear, etc.
If you are lucky, you may land a nice gill. Small perch and largemouth have the pond stunted. Great for exercise and drowning bait!
