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?

      What do you think Smurfy? No answer maybe we better send out a search party.

      A good ice fishing suit ( ice armor, striker gear etc) or waders just put layers underneth. That's what I would do.

      I hear ya on the ice safety.  I am trying to plan appropriately for possibly fishing in 3-6" of standing water.   Thanks guys!

      Hey guys!  Just started the a topic discussion for the Rainy River Conditions.  I did check the river today and there is some open water east of Birchdale Landing and posted some pictures of that Landing and Franz Jevne.  Thanks!

         I went and checked the river just before 9:00 am this morning.  The river is open just east of Birchdale with only a narrow spot open.  East of Franz Jevne (about 2 miles east of Birchdale) the River is almost completely open with some shore ice.  The temperature was 19 degrees and it looks like we are suppose to stay below freezing until Sunday with a high of 32 degrees and then it will get cold again.  It is hard to say how the river will open this year with cold weather coming again but here is what it looked like this morning.  Depending on the weather we may not go and check the river again until Monday sometime.   Where you can see pavement is the Birchdale Landing and the other access is at Franz Jevne:
