Where should a guy fish for crappies on either Bald Eagle or WBL, any ideas?

Buy a lake map and look for deeper holes this time of the year. It is going to take some work to find them but will be worth it.

First get a rod with action like above. Second get a jig like above (I perfer little pink one, dave genz made and it glows pink when flashed). Use light 2lb test. berkley vanish works best. finally get the smallest split shot you can find, maybe two. Do not use bobber, but intsall bobber stop (when you check for depth, mark bobber stop at bottom)this will tell you were bottom is. Fish about 6" to 1' off bottom were i am going to tell ya. First bald eagle. I have family over this way and fished both lakes alot. On eagle their are two spot. First on south tip of cigar isle. right off of shore their is a steep drop. fish in 20-30 feet of water. if they aint biting go in 15-20 out from beach on east side. White bear lake, the lake is big find your self 20-30 feet of water and you will get crappies. i have got them from a bar on the north east corner and shrp drop off at south end of lake. Good luck! laugh.gif

P.S.

tip with smallest crappie minnow you can find. I have even gotten them of a plastic grub.

A buddy of a guy i work with said his uncle's brother in law caught some nice crappies in phalen on the south end in the 52 foot hole i guess he was using crappie minnows, some were over 9 inches, it might be worth a try.

This might be out of your area, but Minnetonka is producing a large number of crappies. The size is not great, but you can get about 3 or 4 keepers out of every 8 cought. We have been fishing in about 30' with a plain red hook and very small crappie minnows. We are catching at least one about evry 2 minutes..

There is a good hole in spring park bay (just to the left of the landing). There is also some great spots in Phelps. Just find a map and go to the 30 flats in phelps next to the breaks

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
