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.

      Got out for a couple hours yesterday. West end of Francis again, several small sunnies but no crappies this time. Access is pretty beat up, need waterproof boots but the ice is holding up so far. Couple guys had an Argo out.

      Nice @AlwaysFishing23!   We drove by there last night and were tempted to pop a few holes but had burgers on the brain too much.   I got over half of the bottom part of the list done today and 1 part of the top list done, which was much more fun!   A friends custom 6.5 dialed in.  Started at 500 yards and finished at 1000; 7 mph cross wind.  My favorite hits were the 4 inch circle at 550; the 4”x5” plate at 700 and managing a 12 inch 3 shot group at 1000.  Man, he’s got this baby down.

      Wow the fish were on fire but little. I caught so many 4-7 inch gills and one 3 over 7 inches. Crappies were harder to come by and 5-7 inches. 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Got out fishing this morning at about 9am and was off by 2. Had a group of good buddies join and ended with 3 limits of big gills (8”-9.5”),  (limit on this lake is 10 per person per day) 2 jumbo perch, 3 decent pike, and 3 largemouth ( all pike and bass were released immediately as they are out of season). AWESOME day with a good group of buds. Sight fishing in 4-5FOW made the action even more fun😁 if you were able to get out it was a great day to be out with friends, family or the kiddos.

      We get mailboat delivery on Black Duck Island (east Frazer Bay) starting around the 1st of June through the first week of September. Other times, the Tower PO is good about holding mail. Aronson Marina runs the mailboat and could answer your question about Portage Bay.  Good luck, Dick
