Bass anglers continue to do very well on most area lakes. With a
few days of consistent weather these fish have been shallow. If a
weather front moves through, look deeper for consistent catches.
White Bear Lake and Forest Lake continue to give up plenty of
northern pike. Sunfish are hitting in shallow water on White Bear
and Coon Lake. Crappies are hanging on the deeper weed edges, and
walleye action has been slow.

Buffalo Lake is kicking out walleyes in 18 feet of water. Look
to Lake Pulaski in 25 feet of water for a few walleyes as well.
Spinner rigs tipped with leeches or crawlers have worked best. Deer
Lake and Buffalo Lake are safe bets for sunfish in shallow water.
Bass anglers are finding plenty of fish in the shallow weeds of
Lake Constance and Lake Charlotte.

The pencil reeds on Lake Minnewashta are worth looking at for
good-sized sunfish. Look to the grassy points for crappies on
Minnewashta as well. Stieger Lake, Parley Lake, and Lake Bavaria
also are producing sunfish. Northern pike and bass are hitting
sucker minnows on Pierson Lake. Hydes Lake is a safe bet for
numbers of 2- to 4-pound northern pike. The emerging weedbeds and
points are your best bets here.

The sunfish are really hitting in shallow water. Look to the
sandy flats and shallow weed edges for a few bigger fish. The big
bass have turned on in shallow water as well. Docks and trees seem
to be holding better numbers of bigger fish. Muskie anglers are
reporting quite a few follows, although the number of fish caught
has been limited. Walleye activity has been slow.
