Green Lake Near Princeton

Fished this lake once a week in the summer but yet to get out this winter. Just looking for an ice thickness report! And if you want to say a thing or two about the fishing that would be great too!

Thanks!

I was headed there yesterday and stopped for bait in Zimmerman. They told me 5 inches with a lot of SNOW and Slush. Went out to elk instead. Plenty of ice there would be great if you wnat to catch 4"perch. Got frustrated on elk and headed to mille lacs for the evening bite. That didn't work either. good news is i have minnows to drown still smile.gif

I was thinking about goin there today... not w/ that ice report though. I've ice fished this lake the last couple years and have caught some nice walldogs, and crappies at night.

      How big are the hooks you're using, wookie?   Make sure they're big enough, especially if you're using big minnows.    I also use heavier line than most people (10 lb flouro) on our rattle reels so I can set the hook with a bit of gusto without worrying about breaking off.  I might get a few less bites than my friends using 4 lb or 6 lb test, but in the long run I bet we both get the same number of fish on the ice.

        Lighten up Francis!  LOL!  It was a blanket statement.  We see it all the time.     If you wanna get away from Sillytown, keep on fishin!

      I have read that mercury levels are a reason there is no commercial harvest on vermilion. But it was probably the same thing you read as I have not found a second source of that. There is commercial harvest of rustys on other Minnesota lakes so there must be a reason it's not done here.    For or what it's worth, the DNR has suggestions on how much fish to eat because of mercury.
