Just came back from a trip out on Green Lake. We found the walleyes hanging around the 'clouds' of baitfish in 40-45ft of water anywere from 25-40ft down. The trick was getting the cranks in that range and we were able to do it with leadcore line. The bite was the best towards evening but we were able to pull some out during the afternoon. 20"er was about the biggest. Every once in awhile we would hook into a nice sized smallmouth bass. Kinda wierd hooking into a bass in 50ft of water but boy do they put up a fight.

I don't know if it was much of a secret as the bite was almost brutally slow for walleys. But that is coming from a guy that normally fishes Mille Lacs. The smallies kept our hopes up with the frequent bites.

On the Mille Lacs forum we share tips more. Doesn't seem like much flow of information on this region.

prime, by all of your posts, it seems like you fish on green lake quite a bit. i also fish out there quite a bit, the last 10 yrs. or so anyway. i have never seen you on the lake. you would think i would see you evey once in a while anyway. i could tell you most of the people who fish out there on a regular basis. maybe you only fish out there after dark. maybe you don't fish out there at all and i am just mis-reading your posts.

searchin,i am probaly fishing where you are not.

have fished with 8 FMERS this year and with about 18 trips with the out of towners FMERS and some neighbor and family trips [33 times this season.

If you see me on the lake you must be out of your realm.

We ahve been calling it Catching this season not fishing.

Last week we fished several times in a new Lund Alskin 20 footer with yamaha 115,week before blue Ranger Bass 21 with 225,sevaeral trips in a Warrior Red and grey poly with a 200 Mercury.Week before that in a ranger white with 150 mercury,and so it goes .Other times blue kayak,or green Lund dc with ii5 Johnson.Started the season in a red Triton Bass with 250 mercury.

We normally put boats in at county park campgrounds where these persons are staying.

try to fish with freinds and give away locations,and they always have a new spot i hadnt tryed.

.Next two weeks simply leave the lake alone as its too hot

But we did evening fish after thursdays bass league and Saturday evening till 12;30.It was good

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!

      Who hates when your monofilament line wants to come off your reel. Let me share some tips and tricks with you on spooling your reel and help fixing this problem. https://youtu.be/CkFtOHn9nm0

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.
