Green Lake (Chisago)

11 posts in this topic

First off I wanted to thank Mike's Bait Shop for giving me infomation about the lake and it's regulations. We did pretty good out there during the morning hours as we landing 2 walleyes and a northern. The eyes were pretty fat, one at 18 inches and the other at 19... three pretty good hits came off assuming it be eyes... alot of lookers and also caught a few sunnies... will be back there this weekend. Ice thickness ranged from 6 to 9 inches. Good luck out there and be safe.

Nice report, Rich at Mikes bait does a nice job keeping up with the area reports and will always steer you in the right direction. Ask him about fishing Mille lacs sometime, he's got alot of experience on the big pond too!

Does anyone know where the rock bottoms are at??? Just looking to try something new up there... had a map but lost it... I don't like fishing with the crowds so if you guys go up and see a couple of portables in the middle of nowhere... thats us...

I agree, the guys at the bait shop are top-notch!

I spent a few hours on Green the other day and the fishing was very good. Caught a lot of gills in the shallows, with some nice crappies mixed in. The crappies came through only a couple feet below the ice and were very aggressive. Also managed to land a few bass and broke off on about a 10 pound pike by the hole. Also watched a few walleyes swim by that were not interested. Size 8 Ratsos, no bait, we the hot ticket. Pink head with a white body... 6-7 feet of water...

Made it back up there and found the school of crappies. Alot of 8 inchers but manage to get a few plus sizes for the frying pan. Snow made it real hard to pull our portables but was worth it. Saw some really nice northerns on the camera but they weren't interested in our shiners. Again caught alot of blue gills but were small. Thinking about going back up there this coming weekend. Good luck.

Only on the very south part of the lake. However, i would not drive a vehicle out quite yet. The lake has slush and snow, not exactly helping with the safety of the ice. Ice seems to be around 8" on south end. No roads plowed yet.

My fish truck is a hair heavier, so i think I will wait. It may be old and rusty, but I don't want to turn it into a submarine just yet!

I usually fish Glyers bay for crappies and is that were you guys are having the best luck? I heard down by little Green has been good as well. Most important question, I am planning on taking the four wheeler and hauling two shacks on the snowmobile trailer. Will this be an impossible dream with the snow/slush or is it packed down from snowmobile traffic back to the bay.

Thanks for the help

      Me either but I have given a few a chance to be! Like the time one just opened our door up on LOW and stepped in at the same time as saying DNR. I did not see a badge and said where's your badge? He had a mini one inside his coat on his shirt!  We all laughed, showed him our lic's and fish and he went on his way!

      Had a wheelhouse rented out of Isle Saturday through Monday AM.  Went several places in search of shiners, they were hard to come by, so had a mix of suckers, rainbows and fatheads.   Was set up in 28' of water. 3 eye's total (2 in the 16" range and a 21.5").  Two came on rattle reel with a rainbow and plain hook, the other came on a bobber - same set-up.  Caught a few perch jigging.     Everything came on a whole minnow.  Nothing on heads, maggots, waxies etc.   Popped a bunch of holes in shallower water and got nothing on tip-ups or hole hopping.  Planned to go east of The Graveyard, but I thought I should get home before the ice storm hit.

      I'm sure it will be pretty slushy this weekend. But it will refreeze next week end. If the forecast is right anyway!

      I'm not really complaining, just sharing my experience.  And i never had any preconceived notion that all CO's were pricks, it just sucks that the one experience I had was far from pleasant.   One of my favorite shows is North Woods Law - the one where they follow the Maine DNR around.  Anyways,  not sure if they're just being nice because of the cameras, but they all seem like stand-up guys and are pretty good communicators.   I've always had respect for those guys and the work that they do.  All I would ask for in return is mutual respect and a simple "have a good day".
