Let's hear it from Green

My first year in the last 5 I haven't been able to make the Green Lake opener. That can only mean they are jumping in the boat. Anyone doing anything?

Ya I went to fish green for 2 hours on Sunday before the wind and rain hit; I was actually on the lake when it did so I went in quickly.
I only caught a small perch. I had the camera down for a bit and didnt even see any eyes. Plus I didnt have enough time to search so my oppurtunity was at a slim.
One of these years green is going to produce. (I hope)

And keep those hooks sharp!

Has anyone done well on Green? It has turned into a great Smallmouth lake. And we always are able to catch a few small walleyes but nothing impressive.

Just Wondering,

Heard a report last night, 25-40 near tips of shoreline bars and structure.

Green always seems to start slow... and stay slow for walleyes. With the lack of rainfall the clarity has really increased, makes it tough to fish shallow. On the other hand you can see and follow the weedline at 12 feet, it is clear as a bell. The DNR has done a great job managing the smallmouths on Green, maybe they could now concentrate on something the vast majority of anglers are looking for~ walleyes or muskies. Smallmouth are fun to catch but it doesn't take much talent. They don't fight like a muskie and they sure don't taste like a walleye.

WAS OUT ON GREEN ON WEDNESDAY AROUND NOON. WAS VERY WINDY. FISHED THE SPILLWAY FOR ABOUT 15 MINUTES AND GOT POUNDED BY THE WAVES. MOVE TO THE ROCK BAR BY LONE TREE AND PICKED UP ABOUT 5 SMALLMOUTH. MOVED AGAIN TO THE EAST SIDE BRIDGE AND CAUGHT A CRAP LOAD OF LARGEMOUTH. SAW A FEW BASS SWIM BY THAT LOOKED LIKE THEY WERE PUSHING 7 POUNDS!

I fished green on sat afternoon but could only get some very nice smallmouth bass. Hopefully it will warm up pretty soon so the turn on. I had my young son with so I didn't go down deep for them.

good luck!

      Tried my luck on Lory lake for some pan fish. trying to catch a meal. didn’t find any sunfish over 7” and a few 9” crappies. Not what I was expecting hoping for a little better. Might have to try a littler bigger lake for some better results.

      Mmmmmmm~~~~ here's one for ya! For years we have been trying to get our fave Mayfly Rafts & Spikes into a booth at The State Fair. Rafts = ~~~  Honey Waffle coated with Dark Chocolate Glaze n Peanut Butter then sprinkled with Frozen Real Maple Syrup dipped Mayflys.  To die for.

      @cherokee muskie-mike is spot on the dog food... When I use to camp at hoodoo point campgrounds I tend to use nightcrawlers if I have any to spare (in a minnow trap). Caught too many rusties while fishing.

      6/22/18     West Metro Water temp is in the 70's and sunfish are up on the beds. Look for harder bottom areas inside of or adjacent to softer bottom with weeds. The smaller females will be staging over the weeds--you may see them boiling--and the big bulls will be guarding the nests (beds) on the firmer bottom. Got my son and Dad out to catch a bunch this morning.  Ultralight 7' spinning rods/reels with four pound test Berkley Nanofil works great to cast to these bedding fish from a distance and get a good hook set. We use a 1/16 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig tipped with a 1" to 1.5" soft plastic (minnow, grub, tube, etc.) under a slip float to adjust for beds at different depths. Usually you will be targeting 2-8 feet of water, depending on water clarity. Take care not to keep everything you catch. It is fine to keep a fresh meal once in a while--sunfish is awfully tasty--but put plenty of fish, including the biggest bulls, back. Needed to keep the natural cycle of reproduction going. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Fished the lake this morning ,,, water temps were 72-74 and the flys were hatching ,,, unhooking the walleyes they were coughing up fly larvae,,, Need to power wash the boat now ,,, No keepers today but lots of overs and 2 unders mixed in with some pike and sunnies on flicker minnows ,,, Go figure

      Thanks everyone for the feedback. I was beginning to think I lost my touch. Took a beating this winter, but hopefully it will come back again. Also would like to see some more restrictions on the crappies. Time to start checking the deeper weed beds I guess. I know the water temps have been fluctuating a lot this spring and maybe they skipped the spawn.

      Crappies have been hard for me to pin down on other waters as well.  Seems they are not were they usually are and I wonder if the weird winter to summer transition is to blame.  Time to start looking in other parts of the water column.
