muskies in white bear

7 posts in this topic

Going to fish white bear on thursday for the muskie. Dont know too much about the lake but we talked to are old boss and he told us we should go there. What kind of lures should we be throwing in the warm waters. and any where abouts to fish would help also.

Not sure about WB. But Bald Eagle has been kicking out some fish for my uncle and buds. Best luck has been on lures with black and orange.

Good luck

Was out there last week.... best advice would be to look to spots away from as much boat traffic as possible.

As for the lures: Saw a lot of small sunnies breaking the surface, just read one about a guy on WBL that had a muskie grab his sunny, so maybe look to a crank bait presentation to mimic the sunnies? They were scattered across the weed beds. There's a Rapala shad rap in a bluegill pattern that I wish I had when I was out there.

Good luck!

i have never fished white bear this time of year for the marchetty. i have seen a fair number of fish on large spinner baits come out of there in june and had some luck on small sandcats. later in september and october the fish have come from orange blade/black hair bucktails and large sucker minnows.

there are some great humps to cast in the middle of the first lake between the marked bar and the gap between the island and peninsula. i would try the south side of the island and peninsula first thing in the morning and move out to the humps later.

good luck getting your boat out if you fish past 10 on a sunny day. i was out at the beach a couple of weeks ago and it was a complete zoo; there had to be a 45 minute to an hour wait to get a boat in or out.

If you get out of bed early the lake is just about dead. Was out there on Sunday at 5:30 fished till about 10. And was one of the few boats at the access when I left. Had no issues at all. I was fishing on the south shore by bellaire on sunday. we were on the edge of the weeds pulling cranks and had a huge 50+ incher roll about 20 feet from the boat. They are deffinitly in there. Good Luck.

That has been key for me on White Bear. Out at 4-4:30 and off the water buy 10. The lake is nice and peaceful with just a few muskie guys and some fishing for those other species; sand carp, sun carp, striped carp, small mouth carp etc. It seems like there is a bell goes of at 10 AM and the recreation boats come out and the fish go hide in an instant.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!
