Green Lake

13 posts in this topic

Just came back from a trip out on Green Lake. We found the walleyes hanging around the 'clouds' of baitfish in 40-45ft of water anywere from 25-40ft down. The trick was getting the cranks in that range and we were able to do it with leadcore line. The bite was the best towards evening but we were able to pull some out during the afternoon. 20"er was about the biggest. Every once in awhile we would hook into a nice sized smallmouth bass. Kinda wierd hooking into a bass in 50ft of water but boy do they put up a fight.

I don't know if it was much of a secret as the bite was almost brutally slow for walleys. But that is coming from a guy that normally fishes Mille Lacs. The smallies kept our hopes up with the frequent bites.

On the Mille Lacs forum we share tips more. Doesn't seem like much flow of information on this region.

prime, by all of your posts, it seems like you fish on green lake quite a bit. i also fish out there quite a bit, the last 10 yrs. or so anyway. i have never seen you on the lake. you would think i would see you evey once in a while anyway. i could tell you most of the people who fish out there on a regular basis. maybe you only fish out there after dark. maybe you don't fish out there at all and i am just mis-reading your posts.

searchin,i am probaly fishing where you are not.

have fished with 8 FMERS this year and with about 18 trips with the out of towners FMERS and some neighbor and family trips [33 times this season.

If you see me on the lake you must be out of your realm.

We ahve been calling it Catching this season not fishing.

Last week we fished several times in a new Lund Alskin 20 footer with yamaha 115,week before blue Ranger Bass 21 with 225,sevaeral trips in a Warrior Red and grey poly with a 200 Mercury.Week before that in a ranger white with 150 mercury,and so it goes .Other times blue kayak,or green Lund dc with ii5 Johnson.Started the season in a red Triton Bass with 250 mercury.

We normally put boats in at county park campgrounds where these persons are staying.

try to fish with freinds and give away locations,and they always have a new spot i hadnt tryed.

.Next two weeks simply leave the lake alone as its too hot

But we did evening fish after thursdays bass league and Saturday evening till 12;30.It was good

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!

      maybe he didn't see the question yet? google is your friend. this one sounds like its for vets that are at the VA.  not sure. Check out Take a Vet Fishing online.  couple events coming up. not by Duluth tho.
