White Bear Lake Reports.

Recommended Posts

Beef46

Anyone have any recent White Bear Lake reports? I am going out next week with a buddy and have never fished this lake. If anyone is willing to share any decent areas (not necessarily Hot Spots) it would be greatly appreciated.

We will be going out after work so we will probably fish crappies early and try to locate some walleyes later in the evening.

Thanks in advance for the info.

I was out last sunday and had marginal luck. My bro and I fished around ordway bar 5-15fow. Caught a couple of crappies using fatheads and lindys/bare hook.

Fished the 'sunken island' along the north-side of that same bay and caught a few snakes. Bobber fished there at dusk with jigs and caught a couple of smaller walleyes.

Good luck!

If your fishing after dark, try trolling some raps (floaters, countdowns, shallow shad) in the shallows. The windy sides are a good place to start. Don't be afraid to troll above or in some weedier areas.

I don't think you will catch anything in White Bear Lake. You may have to sell your boat to me for 50 bucks. I wish you the best of luck floating around the lake!!

Well, was on WBL last nite and it was average. A few snakes, a few eater Sunnies (put em back though) a bunch of 1 lb bass, a 14" Walleye within 10 minutes of getting on the water(put him back).

Wasn't great but caught fish. Beautiful nite to be out.

BUT SOMEONE NEEDS TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THAT BOAT LAUNCH!!!!!

I watched 4x4 trucks get stuck trying to pull out their boats. I waited for an hour for 3 boats to pull out. And who in the he!! is going to put a curb in the middle of a sand launch. Just plain stupid.


PS. I had a van and had no problems getting out. Just did it the smart way.

Sly, thanks for the info. It did help a bit. The spots we caught most of the fish I had marked on my Lakemaster Software and GPS and what you sent me confirmed what I had marked. We caught fish there.

Last time I was there, between the trailer sinking into the sand, and the big heave in the ramp, and the steep nature of it already, I almost needed 4-low to get the boat back out.

Whew! It can be a doozy.

If I had 2 wheel drive, I would probably still be there, tires smoked down to the steel belts. grin.gif

Good fishing,

Was there last night with ebass for the first time. It wasn't to bad , we caught about 6 fish in a couple of hours, mostly on top waters. Man is that lake clear as water or what!! Are there any tips anyone can give to catching bigger bass any help would be great!!
They certainly have to do something about that launch. If you have a somewhat heavy boat you better have a 4x4. If I didn't have it I probably would still be there. Saw a guy out there last night in a brand new f350 w/duallys get stuck with his back wheels buried. We tried to help but nobody had a tow rope.


Good Fishin'...

I used to fish with spinnerbaits along the cattail beds and did pretty good for bigger sized bass. Did hook into one that would go near 5-6 pounds, had him on for a while until he broke the line. Dock fishing was also pretty good when the sun was out.

Those are some healthy looking northerns. Sounds like you had a great day! Must be nice to fish during the week. I am very jealous of that. Catch any muskies on this pattern?

BIG bass - try deeper water. I have caught many 3-5 pound bass fishing in 20 - 30 feet of water fishing for walleyes.

Report: 2 nights ago I was out on White Bear Lake fishing with a buddy and we were flipping jigs with Berkley Gulps into the docks along the Birchwood shore fishing for bass - we caught our share of 10 - 12" bass when I set the hook on a fish that definitely was NOT a small bass. It was around 9:15 and it was starting to get dark. The line was flying off my reel and the fish went completely under the boat and jumped on the other side. Neither me or my buddy saw the fish jump, but we both heard the big splash...a couple minutes later my buddy netted my 33" Northern! I've always known there are bigger Northerns in WBL but usually only catch the pound and a halfers the lake is noted for. Great fight...a lot of fun to catch. There were two 10 year old (or so) girls sitting on the end of the dock where I caught the fish and both ran to shore scared when the saw me hold up the fish. I also caught a 17 1/2" smallie in the Birchwood area. Not a bad night on my favorite lake!

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?
    • jkrash
      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.
    • Wanderer
      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒
    • osok
      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.   
    • Tom Sawyer
      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....
    • Wanderer
      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.
    • Borch
      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
