NORTHEAST METRO

The weed edges of Big Marine Lake, Forest Lake, and White Bear
Lake are producing northern pike. Bass continue to bite on most
area lakes, with Lake Phalen kicking out a few bigger bass. Look
for sunfish on Forest and Lake Jane in 8 to 12 feet. The best
walleye reports have come from Clear Lake, Lake Jarvis, and Big
Marine Lake.

pike. Hit Beebe Lake for consistent crappie action in 15 feet of

Lake Minnewashta is producing sunfish at two depths. Look in 5
to 10 feet or 20 to 22 feet of water. Dexter Lake is giving up
good-sized northern pike in the channel area. Bass continue to hit
on Lake Bavaria along the inside weed edges. The Minnesota River is
a safe bet for numbers of 10- to 15-pound catfish and a few
walleyes.

LAKE WACONIA

Bass continue to hit along the weed edges and shallow reed
areas. Topwater baits have produced a few bigger fish. Look for
sunfish in these same areas, and the walleye action has picked up a
bit this week as well. Look to Kegg’s Reef and Cemetary Reef with
slow moving live bait rigs early and late in the day for the most
consistent walleye bite. Muskie anglers are reporting a lot of
follows and an occasional biter. The swimming beach area, Pillsbury
Reef, and Reinke’s Bay are all worth investigating.
