Crappie action has picked up considerably this week in the bays and shallow shorelines areas of Lake Jane, Demontreville Lake and Olson Lake. The marinas on the St. Croix River, the north end of Bald Eagle Lake, and White Bear Lake also have given up crappies.

Lake Parley and Rietz Lake started giving up crappies in 6 to 10 feet, but these fish will move shallower, possibly as soon as this weekend. On Lake Bavaria, crappies are being found in 8 to 10 feet. Look for them to move into the shallow bays and shorelines.
