White Bear Lake and Bald Eagle Lake in the beautiful City of White Bear Lake - Weekly Fishing Update....

Week of July 17, 2017


Another great week to be fishing in Minnesota! 

Here is the fishing update for the week of July 17, 2017 - White Bear & Bald Eagle Lakes


Walleye are being taken from the St. Croix River in 20 ft. of water using leeches.  Water Bear Lakes have a variety of fish being caught.  Bass are in the very shallows in the warm water, under docks has been a great place using plastics and sucker minnows.  Northern's are best with the use of spinners and cranks over the weeds in 8-12 ft. of water.  Pan fish are all over the lakes in 8 ft. using waxies and crappie minnows.  Muskies are being taken off Ordway Bar and Manitou Island in about 12 ft. of water using bigger bucktail lure.


The weather is hot keep safe and drink plenty of water!


Thank you to our friends at Blue Ribbon Bait and Tackle for the fishing update and their expertise.
