Burnsville Lake contains big muskies

BURNSVILLE LAKE
The old legend still holds that Burnsville Lake contains big muskies. It held them in the 1980s and 1990s, so why not today? In fact, fishing pressure remains minimal compared with the pressure muskie anglers exerted on this reservoir during those two decades.
Burnsville Lake still has good numbers of muskies, but the lake's best attribute is producing trophy muskies. How big? Well, how about the 55-inch, 47-pound muskie that was found by fishermen in 1996? This potential state-record muskie was found floating dead on the lake either having expired from a stressful battle with an angler or more likely died of old age.
