Green Lake Stocking

12 posts in this topic

Back to stocking of walleye in Green Lake Spicer Mn.We will be updating you evry two weeks.As of today we talked with many persons and clubs over 50 miles away to 350 miles away.I have fished Green Lake 42 times this year daytime before 2:00p.m.Another has fished it 36 times from 7:30 a.m. to dark.Its probaly not going to help any but we are finding fish.Today I talked to a person that fishes alot on Green and he told me of pretty good success.I talked to DNR fisheries about a hour ago and he said that this years net count may be as high as 9 fish per net.He has not made the decision as of today if they ars going to write permit or not.We contacted walleye suppliers 15 minutes ago and they are making permit application early next week.As of now their are a significant number of walleye fingerlings and carryover available locally and we do not feel worried about private availability.As far as DNR stock and availability we wont know for several days as they are just completing thier study and putting together their recommendations.Locally they are going to bring it up to state fisheries and try to give us an answer when I contact them back in two weeks.Still plenty of time to act on this so wont get impatient but like I said we have made the move to apply for stocking privatly as we must move on.You will know this project as ANGLER MANAGEMENT 101.Our mission is to control the angler within by offering a good fisheries as is possble .

primetime,now you say you have talked to many people from 50-350 miles away about stocking green but you still can't tell any of us locals a contact name and number in case we want to help out? you impress me,. you can be coherent enough to type in this world while you are still living in another one. primetime , shoot us some facts, not your b.s.

Enough talk about walleyes and Green Lake. Lets get a lake around this area stocked with Muskies. There are plenty of lakes in the area a person can go to to catch walleyes...Diamond, Florida, South Long, Ringo, Norway etc. We are lacking a Muskie Lake in this area and I think it is time to focus attention on that. Currently, if you live in the New London-Spicer area, you have to travel over an hour to fish a Muskie Lake.

I'll second that muskie vote, we have many lakes that could handle them. But then again that would just start the crying from the anglers that only fish walleyes saying that the muskies are eating all of the walleyes.

Screw it, lets stalk muskies instead of walleyes on green! Might as well have it all there.

with the large populations of perch, sunnies, and small largemouth bass in green,right now would probably be as good a time as any to try to get the muskies to take off in green lake. there aren't as many large pike in the lake right now (comparing it to 5-8 yrs. ago) so i wonder how muskie would hold up?

searchin we talk to persons from 50 to 350 miles away about their lake stocking ,they could care less about Green lake.Didnt know my two weeks were up.Others involved will be at public meeting when held in September.You probaly know most of them.The question you have probaly answered already is you want to help.cool.We are waiting to see the local fisheries report on age groups,increased netting counts and how many fingerlins and carryover they are prepared to stock this fall before we proceed.One thing we want to be is supplemental.if they use our funds just to pay for fish they already planned on stocking we could have just as well have bought pheasants or took another fishing trip or something that only benefits us.I always figured that paying the fees for lisence boat registration and other taxes would be sufficient enough to make sure they do the best possible job they can do.Like I wrote while being coherent as possible September,and yes now I am off,two weeks actually fishing and raising a little hoopla in my other world.It should be great.Yea MUSKIES would also be a great addition.

EsoxCop, I think the best place for muskie stocking would be the river north of New London. Lots of hammerhandle pike for them to feed on, as well as the other little fish. The water is shallow enough that it would warm early to have a good bite starting in july. With miles of water, would make a great start.

We got a couple off Miltona in late June/early July but lately we've only raised a few. It's been pretty slow

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
    • ANYFISH2
      wow, that is one dark walleye!
    • ANYFISH2
      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!

      Decided to fish Big Detroit saturday with a buddy.  Had bites but my 24 v 75#  trolling motor couldn't keep me in place so that sucked.  When we left the access to go fishing I asked the young man how late they were open till so I could make it back in time to get washed since I was going to fish a different lake on Sunday morning with the nephews.  I will be here till 5:30!  Sounds good see you before 5!  Fishing sucked, Wind BLEW, RAIN SUCKED!  So we packed up at 4:30 drove to access get there around 4:40 and they are gone!  Hot on my heels is a local fishing guide and he wasn't happy also because he had the same game plan.  Was told that there would be one at Melissa till 5 pm religiously.  Got there by 4:55 and they were gone from that lake too.  I honestly don't feel comfortable enough to do a safe job washing since I don't have a pressure washer and I really don't want to spread the Zebra Mussels from lake to lake and I know it was only a few hours 5-6 but honestly whats the point of AIS being there if they don't stay till the house they are supposed to be?  There was an easy half dozen boat trailers still at the access so it wasn't like we were the only two left at the access.

      Had some fun Saturday morning crashing through the lily pads on a small metro lake.  2 fish over 5 lbs and every fish absolutely choked the bait.  All I want to do is throw top water now, haha.  Wish I had longer arms or a partner in the boat for a decent photo.

      I really hope they don't screw this place up. I love it out there and have done a lot of hunting there. I sure wish there were fewer horse trails. It shouldn't be so easy for hunters to access all the woods. That makes it harder to get away from the guys who want to hunt no more than 50 yds from a gravel road.    The dunes seems like a pretty special place to me. DNR does a lot of things that leave is scratching our heads, let's hope they manage this place properly.

      Im staying at Arrowwood July 2-5 and looking to catch some 'eyes for a fish fry or 2. Never been to the area before so I dont have much to go by other than my overall knowledge of Walleye fishing elsewhere. Ill probably be fishing early mornings and dusk for obvious reasons, but also because my boat will be used for the majority of the days for entertaining the girlfriends family. Im open to fishing not only Darling, but Carlos and Le Homme Dieu as well. 

      From what ive read and can see on Google Earth, the lakes are pretty clear, and from experience, usually means tough walleye fishing for this time of year. -I grew up fishing Woman Lake in the Longville/Hackensack area and that lake is as clear as they come. The only way we can snag some 'eyes in the summer is to fish the deep weed lines. Is that the approach I should be taking on these lakes? Does dragging rapalas across mid-lake flats produce? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Thanks,

      Gavin.

      Ha, I've read stories about that lake being filthy. And I know about those warnings on the link you posted I just wonder if this stuff is blown out of proportion. Reason being I can't find any confirmed cases of people having mercury poisoning from eating freshwater fish. I know mercury poisoning does exist but can we really get it from fish? You'd think if we could then there would be cases down south where folks are eating catfish from the Mississippi.    We ate a few 30+" Pike during the ice season, I ate more than my wife, and I only did that from lakes that are safer according to DNR and MDH fish tissue surveys. I kept it to once a week for her and I ate the rest. I went over the one meal a week rule several times for myself, but then went a while without taking home fish while the season was closed. I'm not glowing yet haha.    I also don't understand why walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat per those surveys when Pike are above them on the food chain.

      Surely they have a Terrova on the floor. Doesn't matter what size THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME. Also, boat dealers have showrooms with all kinds of stuff mounted on boats.
