I haven't heard boo on Forest Lake lately. I do know that they are getting muskies on White Bear. Other lakes in the area are starting to bring in fish at the weedlines.

Welcome to the forum...

When I fish F-Lake, I usually launch from North Shore Blvd on the third basin and fish the west side of the third basin. I've caught my share of largemouth and pike there with artificials (plugs and spoons). I was there two weeks ago and hooked a 41" 'ski and had another nice one follow my lure to the boat. I did the figure 8 ... and figure 4 ... and figure 37 ... couldn't get the bugger to bite!

Here's a link to the DNR map of Forest Lake. The three basins are known as lakes #1, #2 and #3 from left to right on this map.

http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/data/lakemaps/b0285010.pdf

The launch I usually use is on the east side of Lake #3. The city park launch is on the west side of Lake #1.

The place I'm talking about is the south side of lake #3. As the lake slopes up, there is a nice weed line running east-west that I work. I usually start a little deep than then work my way toward the weeds as the sun gets lower in the sky.

I've also had some fair luck along the edge of the deep hole in lake #2.

The link didn't come through...oops!
Let me try again...if not, goto the Minnesota DNR site and use the lake finder to get the map
