Green Lake - Trash left on the lake

Recommended Posts

guntar

To the guy who drove his car like a mad man on the lake, almost running over my tipup and I'm sure other peoples. With your 2 young kids riding with you. Thank you for proving me right. You left half a garbage bag worth of garbage on the lake and shoved in the holes you drilled. Nice example for your kids. If I would have written down your license plate I would have called the DNR or cops. In fact the next time I see your car on the ice I will call the DNR/cops.

You are the people that will ruin and have ruined some of the beautiful lakes we have in our state. It makes me sick to see you teach this practice to your kids. It was great of you to bring your kids out fishing but please show some respect to the outdoors, your kids are watching and will treat the outdoors the same way you do.

I picked up your garbage this time, and will again next time if I'm there, but it just chaps my rear......

I will get off my soapbox now, but to everyone out there on the lakes that treats them with respect, talk to these people if you know them. Let them know that this type of behavior is not acceptable.

Thanks for reading and good luck fishing to everyone!

Good work on the clean up guntar! I only takes one guy like that to ruin a night, doesn't it? Sounds like that piece of work really soured your evening... bummer. Did you find any fish?

Every year it happens. Good work on cleaning up after them. It's all you can do most of the time. If you get a plate number, call it in. This ear hasn't been as bad with fewer people fishing, but I still find garbage most times I go out. I just pick it up and throw it in the sled.

I also thank you.. But I would be willing to bet, the person you are writing this to, is not a person reading these boards..

I was fishing alittle lake by Mora a few weeks ago and some guy came out at dusk and set up. I left and the next day I came out and there was [PoorWordUsage] everywhere!! Cans(12+) dozens of cigarette butts, several plastic caps, fishing gear, a busted tip-up and several roaches! I cleaned it all up and a local came over and said what a piece the guy was and must be, and that he is probably from the east side of St.paul or something. I replied that I was from the east side and I doubt he was! It is usually locals who destroy their own backyard!

Whoa now, FishSystem! I don't think you've ever met Guntar! wink He'd make it in office for about three days before he'd have 19 different groups of people ticked off at him! grin He'd probably go and make beer the national beverage and institute a policy of a four day work week for everyone. He might even require national holidays on fishing and hunting openers. Wow, the more I think about this, I'm starting to agree-- Guntar for President!!! smilegrinlaugh

LOL- Guntar is a good buddy of mine and I totally agree. Great work on the cleanup, Guntar.

      Rough weekend at the lake... but still better than any day at work! I managed to get out for a few hours Saturday morning and then got off the lake when the storms rolled in and stayed off. I threw for muskies for a few hours but didn't move any and then switched to smallies and boated a few on rock piles.  We were stuck for a while on Saturday with the road near Camp Vermilion washed out. Looks like the whole area got quite a bit of water. How'd everyone else fare?

      Does anyone know if you can get a digital thermostat for the roof top AC units? I have a coleman mach 3 plus. The fan constantly stays on and is super loud. But it does work really well for cooling. Any help would be appreciated.

      Spent the weekend on Ottertail, fishing tough. Waves 1 to 3 ft. 4" rain Sat. night, on/off rain all weekend. Caught a few biggest 18". Water crystal clear 15+ ft, even with waves, due to millions of Zebra Mussel in lake. Weeds and clam shells had many Zebras attached. Still better than working.

      My intent is not to bash here. Many Rapalas are great lures but a heads up I had 5 of them on the casting deck of the boat in the heat within 3 hours every one of the split from the heat!!! Wow that was money down the tubes. I have never had that happen. Also it is never a good idea to slap a lure to get weeds off I'm aware of that nonetheless my bride slapped her's to get a weed off nothing violent but what she got back was a lure in pieces. I love many of the lures but wont be buying any off those again. I have had the lips pull out on the Shad Raps before. My favorite is the Fat raps those are indestructible.

      It happens.  If you timed if post-spawn, its definitely tougher.  It takes them a while to recover and get into their summer pattern.

      Stovetop?  Walleye on west end is tough because there are fewer and they are mostly larger fish that don't seem to behave the same way as smaller ones.

      Pike should be working well on the deep weedlines leading into the two slop bays that Del mentioned. They are commonly calle "The Nursery". Largies should be anywhere in the weeds. Del also hit the nail on the head about the Windsock island and the bay behind it. The windsock island area can be a good walleye producer in the early mornings and sometimes in the evenings. Don't forget to try the larger "bay" (really more of an indentation) past the Windsock island and its associated bay. Lots of boulders in there so be careful, you'll see some shiny rocks! I've had good success in there  for both species of bass and pike, lots of nice sunnies too. There is a reef that runs from the point directly out across Norwegian from the resort marina and runs from there to the other shore running to the northeast. Good spot for the evening walleye bite. You'll probably also want to try fishing the Merry Go Round and the Stovepipe on Wak-Em-Up Bay for walleyes and smallies. I'll try to post more info when I have a bit more time!

      Thanks for the heads up. You going over weed tops or deep?
    • MinnowBuckets
      Is anyone doing well for smallies or walleyes on the river right now? I haven’t been out in over a week and the water has gotten pretty muddy with the recent rain.
    • jigginjim
      If you live on the lake from what I have seen and heard they put the boasts ok n when nobody is at the ramp checking. So much for the great inspection, no decontamination after leaving the lake, that's a major issue I see. So far I have not seen any of the inspection crew at other lakes. Nobody on Constance, Buffalo or South ramp of Maple lake.
