Went to green yesterday afternoon/evening. Didnt do so well. Marked fish,but they seemed finicky. I threw everything I had at them only caught 3 keepers and a handful of small ones. Has the bite been like this or just me? Any other lakes around producing decent crappies? O just wanna bring home a meal of fish

That has been my luck around here this year. Just can’t get on a good bite. I will have do some more scouting to find a solid bite around here.

North Goose was producing crappies fairly steady earlier along with some decent sunfish. Ice was 14.5 last weekend but, the bite was slow and you have to remember the limit is five for crappies on this lake. Checked with a couple of home owners on West Rush who keep fish houses on that lake, they said the ice last weekend was averaging 14 inches. Not quite enough for me to feel safe taking out the wheel house but I will after a few days of this cold spell.

Was on West Rush yesterday crappie fishing. 18 - 18.5 inches of ice was the norm. The bite was slow but I came home with enough for dinner. Fished from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. over the holes south of Cigar Island. I may have to put the auger extension on soon? It sure saves on the back once the ice gets thicker, especially in a wheel house where you're already up an extra foot or so when you drill.

You have keep moving with crappies during the day on Green. After dark the perch activity slows down and that is when the crappie fishing is better for most. The perch are always thick in green and allow the pike to quickly and the eyes. 

 

During the day the crappies roam the deep basin area of green lake and are on the move chasing the food down. These are my favorite fish to target. It will require lots of holes to be cut, but is a good way to put numbers on the ice. During the day wax worms or plastics are great.

 

after dark I like to set up some the shallower flats or structure in green. Don’t just think of the big sunken island. There are many smaller ones that produce better for me. After dark I like glow jigs with a minnow, rattle spoons that glow, and plastics that glow.

Mobility is a problem with a wheel house. Moving 4 times during one outing is not nearly enough. If you aren’t catching the fish you want after 10 minutes, move. Don’t just sit there in that wheel house.

      yea I keep thinking of getting a different motor but runs good. its a 40 Johnson. I am happy with the boat itself and don't plan on a different one either.

      There are good panfish, both above and below Pillager dam. in Lake Placid, As the water warms, look for the milfoil beds on the north side of the river to establish itself.  If the edges as well as the deeper water adjacent to the weeds.  I like to fan cast a split shot rig vs. a bobber set up. Below the dam, in summer panfish can be caught directly below the dam as well as near Cty 1 Bridge and along most of the inside turns of the river east of there. There are some nice sized panfish in the system, please let the bigger ones back.

      Anyone ever fish this lake before? Looks like it could be a good early season lake. Where exactly is the access? Is it a marked road? Pay box or do I have to go to the house and bother the guy? Appears the river might be too high to fish next weekend, so it’d be nice to find a little solitude on a nearby lake over the holiday weekend.

      I was the one with the 26-1/2" fish yesterday that weighed 5.15 #s. Was a skinny spawned out walleye!  Catch her again in 2/3 weeks and she will be 6/7 lbs for sure! 
    • JerkinLips
      I'm sure that the 5.15 pound walleye was a skinny 26" fish.  The regulations book lists a 20" at 2.7 pounds and a 26" at 6.2 pounds.
    • PRO-V
      Believe it or not it's a 1993 1660 ProV with a 2 stroke Pro 60 Yamaha. Still runs like a champ. I'm starting to get to the age that it doesn't pay to get a new one. It's always stored in the garage unless we're on a trip.

      Must have been a tough day of fishing with a couple hundred good fishermen catching only an handful of fish over 5#.   I'm puzzled by the fish weighing 5.15# and and 5.81#.  Seems too heavy for a 20" fish and too light for a 26" fish.  The chart I use suggests a 20" walleye weighs 3.12# and a 26" walleye weighs 7.18#.  Of course there is huge variation around this prediction chart.  Wonder if these were these long skinny fish or short chunky fish?   Thanks for posting the results bb and congrats on 10th place.
