NORTHEAST METRO

Northern pike continue to hit sucker minnows in 10 to 12 feet of
water on lakes such as Forest, Big Marine, and Jane. Look for an
occasional flurry of evening crappie activity on Lake Peltier and
Big Marine. These fish are now suspending over deep holes. The
Bayport area of the St. Croix River also is worth noting for
crappies. Sunfish and walleyes have been tough to locate in recent
days.

SOUTHWEST METRO

Work the deep hole in the center of Hydes Lake for crappies.
This bite usually peaks as the sun sets. Red Rock Lake is still a
safe bet for sunfish in eight to 10 feet of water. Northern pike
activity has slowed with the recent cold snap, but lakes such as
Minnewashta and Auburn are kicking out a few fish during the
morning hours.

LAKE WACONIA

Numbers of northern pike in the five- to nine-pound class are
being caught along the weed edges in 11 to 14 feet of water. Look
for suspended crappies along the weed edges and deep holes of
Wagener’s Bay and Waconia Bay. Sunfish also can be had in these
bays during the morning hours. Walleyes continue to bite, but many
of them have been short. Look to Cemetery Reef, Pillsbury Reef, and
Anderson’s Reef for better numbers of fish in 15 to 22 feet of
water.
