White Bear in late Fall. 3000+ acres, and the recreational traffic is done by that point. Lots of structure, so you can try a few totally different techniques.

I've seen a few big fish out there too.......

What Cjac said ^^^-- but after dark - there is even less recreational traffic then.

Forest - but that's because it's the one I know best. I enjoy WBL and BE, and intend to get to know them better now that I have my own ride.

Each lake has its peak times and they are at different times of the season. I fish all that were mentioned above, at different times of the year.

White Bear in late summer and fall. St. croix in the late fall. And a few Tiger lakes when I'm to lazy to drive. Opps I almost forgot about French. Some nice options in the metro.

Porter... I dont consider French to be part of metro... Faribault is a good 35 min drive south from Bloomington which where I live...

Rebel,

Your right about French. It's not in the metro. I live in Apple Valley. French is about 30 miles from my house, White Bear is 32 miles from my house, Forest is 50 miles, and Waconia is around 35 miles. I'm kind of stuck in the middle.

Porter, I live in apple valley as well and know what it's like to be "stuck in the middle" I just started fishing in this area and I need a little advice. If you have a chance, I'd appreciate it if you could give me your email address, I'd like to ask you a couple questions about a few lakes in our area. My address is mmwaschek@charter.net
