Whitefish on Green Lake

6 posts in this topic

Has anyone been icefishing for whitefish on Green lake? There are tons of them in there but I've never tried icefishing for them on Green. In the GloryDays of Leech lake you could catch hundreds of them a day! They are a blast. Don't need spots, just curious if anyone does it.

Tullibee's are in Green lake, the population is unclear. My uncle would gill nett them in the fall, when the DNR opened the lake for that. As for ice fishing many guys in the area would rather wait for spring then, spend time fishing tullibee's. I would like to try for them but a 4wheeler would be needed at this time to chase these little (1/2 to 2lb)fishes. Maybe if more guys around the area would give it a shot they may find a whole new late winter fishery.

I used to net in them in the fall also. But in the past five years two of the old timers I netted with passed away and the nets haven't seen the water in two years. They are a blast to catch through the ice though. I've always had my best luck using a flasher(like a spoon) and then another foot of line with a teardrop sunfish hook tipped with waxworms. They fight hard and when you get on a school of them the action is non-stop.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
