What Lake this week?

8 posts in this topic

Whats the lake to be on? I just moved up here and fished southern MN my whole life. Went to Ringo...nothing, had a rock on and bent my hook, but we've all heard those stories...so after the dead sea there, I moved the house to Green. Where's the best place to have a house on this glacial lake? DEEP! HELP. Looks like I need a GPS? Any insight would be great.

the lake is a top 5 lake in the state, and can be a challenge to stay on fish.

if you like green lake try fishing the rocks off of indian beach harbor, did well out there last year. Stay a little later than the people around you it could pay off

First I'd say stop at one of the bait shops and pick up the lake master lake map. If you have a gps the spots they put on the map are a good start for eye's. We caught a few last night, but I can tell you the eye's are coming looking and leaving. Can't pop the jig to hard or they leave right away. I'm heading out again to night with the portable to look for some of them again. If you in the area to stay I'd say join the Little Crow Anglers group ($10 bucks a year) they are a great bunch and will give you lots of tips. The common spots on Green will produce eye's, but it's the small honey holes that aren't on the maps that are key, but it's hard to give up those spots as I'm sure you know. Good luck fishing

Unfortunately Carolyn learning a new lake in the winter can be a real chore and green can be very difficult at times. I would stick with one of the smaller lakes such as nest or florida (especially if the kids are with).

Green is a great lake, I hit it all the time during the open water period. There is a fantastic crankbait bite for walleyes on that lake.

Oh by the way, nice webpage too! Nav

      People interested in deer still have time to contribute ideas and feedback about possible deer management topics that will shape Minnesota’s first-ever deer management plan, according to the Department of Natural Resources. Possible deer plan topics and an online comment form can be found on the deer plan page. Comments also can be submitted by email to DeerPlan.DNR@state.mn.us and people can attend public engagement meetings that will wrap up Thursday, March 2. Online and email comments can be submitted through Sunday, March 5, and people can both comment electronically and attend meetings in person if they wish. The DNR strives to maintain a healthy wild deer population that offers recreational and economic opportunities, while addressing conflicts between deer, people and other natural resources. Habitat management, hunting, research and monitoring are several primary tools used to manage the Minnesota deer population. More information on deer management is on the DNR website on the deer management page. ## Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Ever wonder how pure maple syrup gets from trees to the table? Visitors who come to one of the free programs at Minnesota state parks will find out everything they need to know to make a batch of syrup in their own backyard, using basic tools from around their house. Programs start this weekend at Whitewater State Park (near Winona). Options include a morning program from 10 a.m. to noon or an afternoon program from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25. Sign up by calling 507-932-3007, ext. 226, or emailing sara.holger@state.mn.us. Additional maple syrup programs will take place at several Minnesota state parks throughout March and early April. For the complete schedule, and more information about how to tap trees and make maple syrup, visit the maple syrup page. Some programs encourage dropping by any time for a demonstration of syrup-making in progress; others offer hands-on instruction with a taste of the finished product. Participants will learn how to identify and tap the right kind of tree as well as how to boil the sap until it is sweet enough to serve on pancakes, waffles or ice cream. Historically, the best time to collect sap has been between mid-March and mid-April, when temperatures are in the high 30s to mid-40s during the day and below freezing at night. It usually takes 30 to 40 gallons of sap from a sugar maple tree to get a gallon of pure maple syrup. The maple syrup programs at Minnesota state parks are free, but vehicle permits are required to enter the parks ($5 for a one-day permit or $25 for a year-round permit). Due to space limitations, some programs also require advance registration. For more information, call the DNR Information Center at info.dnr@state.mn.us or 888-646-6367 or 651-296-6157 (8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday).

      Most ice on the lake is still safe for travel. You just need to use a little common sense and stay away from current areas and possibly getting to close to shorelines, especially South facing ones. Could be 6" of water on the ice in some areas all right but I found only about 3" to 4" on the ice on Tuesday. That will run off or refreeze with a couple of cooler nights and we will have very good going for at least a couple more weeks. Cliff

      Minnesota fishing, hunting and trapping licenses for 2016 expire Tuesday, Feb. 28.  Licenses for 2017 are now available wherever hunting and fishing licenses are sold, online  and by telephone at 888-665-4236. All 2017 fishing licenses become effective Wednesday, March 1. New licenses are required for 2016 hunting and fishing seasons that continue past Feb. 28. Customers who purchase online via a smartphone won’t receive a conventional paper license. Instead, they’ll receive a text message or email that serves as proof of a valid fish or game license to state conservation officers. A printed copy of the text or email also can serve as proof of a valid license. License fee dollars support the ongoing work of DNR fish, wildlife and enforcement staff to conserve, enhance and protect our waters, fields and forests. Minnesota State Lottery and Legacy Amendment dollars are not available for the regular costs of doing that work. Learn how the DNR spends license dollars on the License Dollars at Work page.
