Has anybody had any luck on White Bear this year? A buddy of mine says the are catching big crappies, but the DNR lake report doesnt seem to back this up.

They are in 20-30", and are scatter but when you do fine them, you'll have some fun.

What part of the lake have you been fishing, any thing of of Ramsey Beach? I spent some nights on the ice infront of the VFW. And one morning off of Ramsey neither very succsesful but did have some good times out there at the end of last ice season.

What time did you hit the eyes? Been out until 6:00 pm with nothing, just wondering if this is a nite bite lake.

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Zach that is a different zone.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
