White Bear Muskies

Recommended Posts

polarsusd81

I am planning to head out to White Bear in the morning tomorrow to try for some muskies. Is anyone willing to give any tips on places to start looking for them. I am planning to be throwing bucktails and possibly a couple cranks. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Start on the south end by Bellaire beach and work east, Stay in contact with the weeds and move the bucktail fast.

RU,

Not much at all. Been a busy summer so far. Things are looking up though. Heading to Rapids for a week and then the chip to fish with Sennett after that.

How about you?

Been pretty bleek here, only out 4 times so far and 2 have been in the last week. My fishing partner kept cancelling on me do to weather. I decided it was time to bring the little boat home. Good luck in the Rapids area and on the Chip, it's time for you to break the magical 50", I know a couple of your kids have.

We went out on Friday morning as planned. I was throwing a bucktail and not having much luck, so we started trolling with bucktails. Soon after, I had one that was in the 45 range come up but missed the bait. Then about 20 minutes later another came up and this time it wasn't a miss. My first musky, 42". In and out of the water in about a minute. She got a bit tangled in the net, but quickly got out of that mess and she swam away. Turns out Friday the 13th is my new lucky day.

Nice fish!

How is the low water out there? Are there some spots that are shallow? How about the landing?

Thanks.

We were out yesterday, we went out a little early for the evening bite, what a zoo. nothin but a few pike, my fishin partner also lost his rig to the lake,so we cut the day a bit short. It seems they have done some work on the boat launch, it is in much better shape than it was a few eeks ago thats for sure, but yes almost the whole beach is high and dry.

Saturday was a complete ZOO. High NNW winds made most of the lake very rough. That wind direction is about the worse possible direction for WBL.

The sail boat race takes up a nice share of the lake - although they were out in the part of the lake with the most wind and waves. One guy was in the MIDDLE of the race fishing a "hump" - I assume for "eyes" cool.gif

We fished the wind swept shore for about an hour and then called it quits.

Most anglers were stacked in three or four little areas out of the wind. A mix of bass anglers and families with bobbers. Add in a couple of speed boats with tubers in the calm area = ZOO.

Now I remember why WBL is a weekday or ice fishing lake.

I myself would suggest Forest Lake for Muskie... it's nearby.. and we couldn't keep them off during last years Fishing MN bass tourney. Just about every boat caught one while fishing for bass... our boat caught two.

For pike I'd say Forest lake once again.. but for bass.. I'd say Bald Eagle.. not the best for numbers but the best for size. WBL is great for numbers but they average around 14" (at least for me)

      Thanks for the reports guys.
    • MinnowBuckets
      The last few days have been pretty hot on areas of the river for a lot of nice bass between 16-18 inches, topping out at 19 inches for my largest. Many were fish located on spawning beds, some hitting aggressively and immediately, and some not interested in even acknowledging the bait. I started out with a 4 inch wacky worm on a VMC wacky weedless jighead, but found that I was getting larger, more aggressive fish by switching to a 5 inch wacky. I would Imagine that the spawn will be all but over within a few days.

      Hi folks... I wanna specifically address fishermen and women, boaters, outdoorsmen and women, and their spouses and significant others. Also, anyone who believes that our right to access public waterways supported by our tax dollars, and managed for our benefit by the DNR, should not be infringed upon by special interests... listen up... You may or may not know about a new program in Wright County to limit access to three lakes in the Annandale area where wealthy lake-home associations have coerced the County Board into implementing a pre-launch "AIS Inspection Station" in the city of Annandale. Anyone wishing to launch a watercraft on Lakes Sylvia, Pleasant, and John, must first travel to the city of Annandale (miles away from any boat landing), go through an inspection process, and be given permission to launch their boat in the form of a zip-tie on the trailer. There are MANY problems with this inspection regime. One problem is its hours of operation. It is open from sunup to sundown. This means that if you wish to go fishing in the evening, or at night, or early in the morning, you must first travel to Annandale THE DAY BEFORE you wish to access the lake, and get your zip-tie. Needless to say, this will undoubtedly prove to be a big enough burden on boaters and anglers that many will simply choose to go elsewhere, which, we contend, is the unstated goal of the Lake Associations who have funded this effort to lobby the County Board. They want non-residents off "their" lake. Another problem is the fact that these lakes are already unfortunately infested with AIS, which means inspecting boats on the way IN to the lake makes no logical sense. Only inspecting boats in their way OUT of an infested lake will have any chance of slowing or halting the spread of AIS. Another problem is that local businesses in Annandale, Southhaven, and to a lesser extent Clearwater and Maple Lake, will be adversely affected by the reduction in commerce that WILL occur as people from outside these fine communities decide to take their watercraft elsewhere. Another problem is the scope of this program, and the stated goals of those who are promoting it. They have said point-blank that they hope to have every county in MN look to Wright County as an example of what can be pushed through, as Lake Associations state-wide are organizing their resources and their political clout in an effort to see similar County ordinances implemented throughout Minnesota. This could, in the future, lead to a scenario where every boater who does not own lake property will first be required to travel to a central County Inspection Station in whatever county they wish to launch their boat, before they will be given permission to launch at a lake that may be many miles away from the station. We believe this is an infringement on the rights of Minnesota boaters and sportsmen to freely and responsibly access our public waterways. Even the DNR is skeptical of this program, but since it is a county matter, they are accepting it for now. Sorry for the lengthy statement. Now I'd like to ask you to take action. We have organized a social media page, over 600-strong now.... Our goal is to gather as many concerned people as we can in this group - and then appeal to the Chambers of Commerce in these fine cities, to organize themselves and appeal to the County Board for a reversal of this misguided policy, on the grounds that it will harm them economically as people take their dollars elsewhere to avoid the infringement of the inspection regime. If you haven't already, and you are concerned about liberty to access public waterways without undue burdens placed upon your access, would you consider lending your voice to ours, and joining our group? Thank you! Join Us!

      Not as easy to find bullheads in the chain as it was in the 80s-90s.... but you will still get a few here and there. The cats took care of most of the bullies over the yrs😉
