shore anglers on Vadnais Lake and on Forest Lake in 18 to 20 feet
of water. The northern pike bite has been consistent on Forest and
Lake Peltier along the outside weed edges. Look for a few crappies
in the shallows of Lake Phalen, White Bear Lake, and Lake

The north end is producing a few walleyes on crankbaits at night
in eight to 10 feet of water. Bobber fishing with shiners is also
producing walleyes off Anderson’s Reef. During the day, deeper
water has been more productive. The shallow shorelines continue to
produce nice crappies in two to 10 feet of water. Look for emerging
vegetation to be holding better numbers of crappies right now.
