Green Lake

Big R

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

      my dad grew up in The Pas, my grand parents owned the avenue hotel and they had a place on Clearwater. Summers we would go up and fish and ski and such. Lots of good memories, other than the horseflies (Bulldogs). My experience was always it really didn't matter what you used, for lakers as long as it was shiny it got hit. Our technique was pretty simple, drop it to the bottom and reel is up fast. they hit hard on the way up and its clear like superior so you can see them a long way down if you have good ice. The river right out of town is good for char too.

      Yeah, ok, I'm using the 8. My drill also overheated after punching 5-6 holes in quick succession. Thanks for the responses... sorry for hijacking the thread

      So I just came back from Lake Winnipeg, and the 3 feet of ice they have there and found my auger lacking. I gave up the gas auger years ago to switch to the clam plate and drill. Around here, even Bemidji where I fish the most, I have never had a problem with getting through the ice. Lake Winnipeg is a different story. Anyway, I have a 6 inch bit now, and when with drilling a couple holes side by side to deal with the big fish but thinking back to my old 10 inch strikemaster I was almost willing to deal with all the issues I had with it to have some space to wrangle a fish. Soooo, im looking at going with an 8 inch bit, with the Milwaukee and the clam plate. I know that clam had a gearbox in the past that would help with that but seems they no longer offer it. will I tear up my drill with the bigger auger? I have two 9 amp batteries  and double the torque now too so I'm figuring a few  extra holes compared to the five amps and 650inc pounds I had for the previous drill setup. Suggestions? thoughts? other than getting a gas auger, cuz that isn't happening.

      That would make a difference now wouldn't it?  Oops my mistake I have a 6 inch just got done fishing today with 5 amp battery I got 27 holes at 19 inches of ice. I noticed the drill seemed warm after drilling 5-6 in a row but no problems. I don't have a gas auger any more but I see what the guys are saying about a power auger.

      Thank you.

      If you want to get in there by snow mobile or walking over, Wolf Lake is worth a try.

      Thanks all. FYI I'm located on Frazer Bay on Vermilion. Give a shout out if/when you may be on the water up there. I may give the Pike River Flowage a try tomorrow or Saturday. I'll provide a report if I go. Thanks again.
