Lake George

6 posts in this topic

So I was up fishing at Lake George tonight from shore by the dock area and this large fishing kept sticking his head out of the water and swimming on top...almost like a dolphin does...to me it looked like a salmon but I know that they wouldn't be around here...another guy docking at the moment seen it and was confused as by what it is too...any one know?

muskies have been known to stick their heads out of the water and swim around. No one knows for sure why they do this??? Don't think theres muskies in George though??? Weird! Could be a pike I guess.

We lived on George for 3 seasons and it used to be directly connected to Nest which feeds from MUSKY overflow from fisheries rearing pond on flood conditions.

So just like Green having them and 3 48 inch and larger from Nest last season its probaly a MUSKIE.

In November go out on bar below bible camp crosses with large one foot dead three days on the dashboard in a bag suckers on a green ELMER HINCKLY Jig with single blade same color and tou will have fun with 13 to 15 pound NORTHERN PIKE.

A freind of mine lived two doors down from where we lived and ice fished ,when asked how the walleye bite was he would say not so good.

In the spring when fishing was over he would show us several pictures of true catch and release walleyes.

Its truly sad that when county road was rebuilt they basically destroyed the height of water passage from Nest.

Those fish for George are now the last of a dynasty.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
