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

      We've done OK out there this year. Nothing special, but better for us than last year. 

      Last time out, we found piles of fish in 60-70 feet. Caught a few, couldn't release them, and stopped fishing them.  Got a couple jig rapping shallower, got a few trolling, and got a few on spinners.  No one pattern got skunked, but nothing stood out, either.

      Sorry for the late response....I suspect not many folks are building skid houses these days. :)

      Our houses have steel skids.  One had wood, but we changed them out.

      Like the food and like the menu. Like the fact there are places to eat on the lake and will continue to support them.

      Thanks, cigar guy.   Might check into it next year.  Or maybe not.   They always used to have some expensive entrees but we just ignored them.   

      Even 12 for a burger is sort of high for the area, but the view is worth something.   Probably stay with the Crescent.   I don't see how there are enough tourists for the landing to make it.

      I have put my guide clients on lots of pike this summer. So far largest bass is 21"- 5lbs  Pike 36" Approx. 8-9lbs, Walleye is 23 inches 3lbs. The walleyes will get better as the water cools. Time to start jigging, everything you got. I'm even started using my crankbaits.

      I'm a local and yes we boycott the place. Friends have been told that they aren't wanted there that they only want the tourist business. Wife and I boat to Wolf Bay when we go out. We live 2 miles from the landing and wish it was still run by Jack.

      Well I made a decision to put the trolling rods away and go do some jigging.   It seemed to be a good one.  I concentrated on rocky transition areas.  I had three slot fish in an hour.  Went back in for some VC pizza and picked my kids up and went back out for a evening trolling run and that produced as well.  You have to love this lake.

      We have friends up and they wanted to take us out for dinner, via the boat.  With the wind, the only place was the landing, I tried vetoing It, but lost out.  Had $12.00 burger and fries.  Very good and the service was fast-only 8 others in the dinning area and a few at the bar.  I checked the prices on the wings-$16.00 for 1-1/2lbs.  Del, they had a pretty good burger menu.  I asked about the 20% off deal and the waiter blew me off and said he didn't know anything about it.  I asked who I should talk to, he said the manager or the owner.  We paid the bill and left without asking.  I liked it a few winters ago when they had ,25 wings and 2.00 beers.
