There’s been some pretty consistent crappie reports coming off
Bald Eagle Lake, Forest Lake, Lake Phalen, and Lake Jarvis in 15 to
20 feet of water. The prime bite has taken place during low-light
periods of the day on these lakes. There are numbers of small
sunfish biting on Lake Jane in eight to 10 feet of water. Little
Lake is producing a few bigger fish in 12 feet of water.

Ramsey Lake is kicking out a few crappies in 25 to 30 feet of
water. Look to Maple Lake and the north end of Howard Lake for
sunfish and crappies in 12 to 20 feet of water. The sunfish bite is
just starting to pick up in recent days, according to most reports
from area anglers.

Stieger Lake is kicking out numbers of eight-ounce crappies in
22 to 30 feet of water. Dexter Lake, which is the bay off Whaletail
Lake, has started producing a few bigger crappies in 17 feet of

The evening hours are producing crappies in the 8- to 12-ounce
range in Wagener’s Bay over 24 to 26 feet of water. The Harms’
Point and Pillsbury Reef areas have been best in the bay. Waconia
Bay also is worth noting for crappies in 11 to 16 feet of water.
The evening bite is your best bet here. The sunfish bite has been
consistent, but the majority of fish have been small.
