Just wanted to let everyone know who fishes Green Lake that there are a bunch of idiots over by pancake island. theres only 2 houses set over by that open water but they are in fact the most inconsiderate jerks on that lake. the lake is a free lake and no one has their "own" specific area. these guys just about ran over our tip ups and were shouting obscene words at us because we were fishing in "their" so called spot. the lake is for everyone and we respect everyone else's space and they don't. beware of these people they are rude and don't feel that they should share the lake with others. so if you want, fish by them and let them know whats up.

Fishman:
I have to agree with Setterguy, looking at the map here...Green Lake doesn't even have an island! South Center, however shows "Pancake Island" in the eastern basin...

ackotz,

The map didn't fit on the page.

There is a very small island way in the back of green.. or at least there used to be... However, Pancake is on South Center for sure!

yeah there is an island on the back part of green but i thought it was called pancake island, but I could be wrong. Anyways there are a bunch of idiots that think they own the lake when I was the only one that fished there for the last 3-4 years.

Sorry to hear that some people have made your fishing exp a little less fun. Hope you can find another spot away from the crowds again some time..

What did you used to get back there?.. Pike or panfish?

Hey Fishman...

Call the DNR about those guys (maybe they'll be cooking up some crack in their fishhouse, when the DNR comes-a-knockin!). They'll let them know whose lake it is.

Is that island you describe in the southern-most bay? That's really shallow over there right?

not too smart for guys with permanents to mouth off to people... they can't keep an eye on their house all the time... gotta stay cool like the fonz out there... be nice to each other or at least try to be.

yeah that island is by the narrows and it is pretty shallow water. they're catching bass over there but their going to fish the lake out with what they keep. (they keep small, small bass that aren't even worth filleting cause theres hardly any meat).
they're not even near a crowd of people. theres only two houses over there by that thin ice.

      On the south end... Ice roads and ice trails are extending out on Lake of the Woods looking to connect with schools of walleyes and saugers.  Some ice roads are out as far as 24 miles.   The subzero cold snap is good for extending ice into March, but it was tough on the bite.  Once the weather started warming up, so did the bite.   Most anglers report picking through numbers of small fish to catch eaters, slot fish and some true trophy fish over 28 inches. Depths vary depending upon outfitter based on where they are fishing, but as a rule, 32-36 feet has been the norm.  The morning / evening bite for walleyes in shallow water,16 - 19 feet, has been active for some. Jigging a lipless crankbait with vibration and rattles has been working well to catch some fish and also draws other fish into the area you are fishing.  Some fish in more of a neutral mood will slide over and take interest in your deadstick, a live minnow just off of the bottom. As a rule, glow and bright colors during cloudy days, the golds and silvers during sunny days.   A mixed bag for many being reported, including walleyes, saugers, jumbo perch, eelpout (burbot), pike, tullibees and even a few sturgeon and crappies.   On the Rainy River...   The golden hour (beginning and end of the day) continues to be the best on the river for those fishing for walleyes and saugers.  Some good reports this week. Some sturgeon have been iced at night by those hunting dinosaurs.   Ice conditions can vary on the river as there is current, work through a resort or outfitter for safety.   Up at the NW Angle... Resorts up at the Angle are hard at work staying on the walleyes.  As a rule, 24 - 30 feet of water is the norm.   Similar to the south shore, using a noisy, more aggressive lure has been effective, as has a jigging spoon tipped with a piece of minnow.  Work the jigging line in one hole with a deadstick and a plain hook a foot off of the bottom in your second hole.   Many eater walleyes caught this week with a variety of other fish in the mix.  Some anglers fishing the Ontario side for crappies are finding some nice slabs. Driving through Canada to the Angle no longer requires vaccinations or the use of the ArriveCan App. For those looking to access the Angle while avoiding customs, snowmobiling across the lake on the marked trails or utilizing the Lake of the Woods Passenger (bombardier) Service are best options.  Fish houses are out through March 31st, walleye and sauger season through April 14, pike season never closes.

      Visitors to Minneopa State Park may soon notice fewer trees near the waterfall area of the park. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will remove 20 trees from the area, including 17 ash trees, beginning Feb. 6.Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I can confirm that I have 3-4 bars the entire drive from Cook to The Landing. When I winter park at a cabin near CigarGuy, I get two bars way up on the hill but still through the trees. There is good reception out on the lake but I haven't exactly been riding around and pulling out my phone to check my cell reception.   Depending on where you are, you may have 4 bars or none. I have none still, but that's because I'm on the north side of a hill with tall trees between my cabin and the tower.

      Something else to just keep in mind here now too is that the deadline to remove permanent overnight unattended shacks is in exactly one month in the southern 2/3 of the state - March 6.  Plan ahead and don't let your castle get stuck out there beyond the deadline.  The DNR can and will confiscate it on site because I know people who have experienced this.

      I heard Green lake by Princeton has plowed roads and truck and castles out there. I will swing by to check it out. Please check the ice conditions for yourself. There is 4-6 inches if slush ice so take that off your totals as that is not very strong.
