The Fish in Cross Lake MN Are Angry!

Permanent link to Cross Lake real estate listings for sale.

One day while I was trolling on Cross Lake in Crow Wing County MN for muskie (using my over-sized Lindy rig with live raccoons on it,) my son was dragging his index finger along the surface.  Suddenly, a bluegill sunfish bit the end of his finger off. I thought he was acting like a baby about it, until the boat stopped moving.  A large Minnesota northern pike had chomped the propeller  clean off!  Ok, so maybe it was not a big deal, because it was only a an old 15 HP Mariner outboard motor.  The thought came to me, “Man, these fish are angry!  No wonder they call it Cross Lake!  These fish are cross!”  I keep throwing bait in the water and they just keep snapping my lines and coming back for more.  I wonder if the Cross Lake lake home owners are scared to go wading!  Are the fish just crabby because they are overcrowded?  Maybe.  However, there 1750 acres of sparkling water surface on this lake! Perhaps they are just hungry.
