n/s center vs green

3 posts in this topic

which of these lakes is best for walleye/pike/bass?? my dad is coming up from arizona and wanted to take out fishing and have a good time catching them! i have had some success on s center but never fished green. i hear green has tons of walleyes but are small. thanks!

Right now, in my opinion. I think Green is putting out more fish... There is a 17" slot on walleyes, and I would be willing to bet you catch a few walleye, but not over 17".. so you will not be able to keep any. South Center is also over run with teeny eyes... But as of now, green is the better for bass... I'll give South/North Center the nod on panfish however.

Heck, do both! Its easy in a day.

yea i hope to get to both places. I like the big numbers that green has, but wish they were a little bigger. caught a few walleyes on n center on opening day. mostly pannies on s center. does anyone know if there are good pike there as well on the s/n center lakes?

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
