Green Lake Crappies

9 posts in this topic

I hear there crappies in Green - I dont want to know where, I just want to know if there is any size to them. Is it like every other metro lake - loaded full of potato chip sized pannies?

There are some decent ones in there, but there is a 9 inch minimum regulation.

The 9" min reg is for Green in Chisago. The number of larger fish seem to be coming back a little but you still have to weed the small ones out.

Yeah, there are crappies in there, but catching them 9 inches plus fish can be hard to do... Seems like most are in the 6 to 8 inch range...

I'll be down in that area for the holidays and people have said it's tough to get skunked out there? True? Where does a person access the lake? depths? Thanks!

You can check with Frankies Bait up there. They are usually good about pointing you in the right direction.

      I love these fish! The attitude is always fun and they taste great. The strip of y bones can be cut right out with a little effort.    I know where I'll be early in the morning May 13th with topwaters and swimbaits!

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.
