Hi all,
I’m moving to Princeton in October and plan on making Green Lake my hard water fishing home. I don’t expect people to give-up their favorite spots, but if you can point me in the right direction to start my hunt, any help would be most appreciated.
Hope to see ya on the ice smile.gif

fubar, green has alot of pressure on it year round. i've had good luck to the left of the point in 28 ft of water sort of my hunny hole for crappies. sure you have to sort but if your willing you can find the bigger ones. as for the eyes i fish off felpsbar(sp) in 12 to 20 ft i think the key is to be portable and not be afraid to try spots you wouldnt think fish would be in the winter. i fish green year round and caught some big fish

fubar, me and some buddy's fish green religiously in the winter time. O.K. we go out there religiously in the winter time and drop a line, get away from the wife, and have some beers. But we do hook an occasional fish. I would be willing to let you know what I know about the lake if your interested. I'm not an expert, for sure, but I have lived here all my life. My e-mail is [email protected]

You might also want to try Blue Lake. I've caught some nice perch out of there off the sunken island in the north end......also Baxter Lake......very good panfish lake. You get some big ones there but have to sort thru some little ones first.....Good Luck to you

Sorry for not getting back sooner but we first moved my parents and now are getting ready for our move. I would really like to get together on the ice; I work the afternoon shift so I usually don’t get out till the weekend. I try to get out during the week, as long as the honey do list isn’t too long, but that’s rare. Looking forward to meeting some Fmers out on the ice. smile.gif

I guess I better hit the DNR site and make some lake maps. Thanks for all the advice smile.gif

walleye wisher,
Your name isn't perhaps Tom is it? I have fished Green a couple times with a buddy of mine and a guy from Blaine, mostly for crappies

      Was a few years ago, but wade fly fished upstream of 53 for a half day.  Tried every popper and minnow pattern fly in my box with no success.  Finally in the middle of the day switched to a larger brown bugger that looked like a crayfish and caught them till I got tired of it.  Unless things have changed, there’s a lot of bass in there.  Not a ton of size, but every now and then you’ll pop a nice one.

      This looks awesome, your kids are about the same age as mine.  I’m really excited to show them the north woods next week, hopefully a few fish cooperate too!

      By larger limit, I meant 6, not 4 walleyes. I count released fish as part of the limit, too. Nothing wrong with a 15” by any means, but we had larger fish we could keep.

      Yes, smallies thrive in the upper reaches of select areas of the St Louis. Lots of structure to get caught up in, but great small mouth habitat.

      I'm about to take my brother and niece over to experience the Soudan Mine tour this weekend. I've driven there before but he inquired about boating to the mine. With the new state park, is there a public boat dock anywhere nearby where one could hike a mile or so from the lake to the mine entrance? I don't make it to the east end too often so my knowledge of bays and landmarks is pretty limited.

      Isn't that the mantra for muskie fishermen?

      Went fishing on Basswood on Sunday. It rained all day but we had a good time thanks to Mike Stark and The Ely Fishing Guide Company.

      Never seen it myself but I looked at the satellite images and thought it looked worth a float.  The dam would probably tell you what you want to know.  Couple good gravel bars too.  Maybe the water is dark or it is mainly deeper - that I can’t tell.   I fished the Cloquet a little where 53 and 33 meet and found good action so I’m assuming the St. Louis would be similar in that area?

      I spent the past 11 days at my cabin, fished 8 of those days and got some projects completed.  Fished Father's Day weekend with my FIL, 2-BILs, and my son, then High School friends this past weekend.  Both groups went home with limits with plenty of fish to eat during our stay.    Yes the bite was tough.  We moved around a lot and did what the weather allowed.  No real patterns, depths, colors, baits, or presentations.  Just put in time looking for them.  I'd say the bite was OK/good, a 5 out of a possible 10.  Some days slot fish were the rule.  My biggest was 29.5.  Some of the fish are already very fat, while others seemed to be on the slimmer side yet.     One day both the Coast Guard and the CO where working an area we were fishing.  Seemed like the CO found issues with 2 out of every 3 boats checked.  The CG seemed to find issues with 1 out of every 4 or so - ended their day escorting a charter boat back to the Rainy direction.  Sounded like they were working the NW Angle this past week.  We were ready, but did not get checked.     I will be up with my wife the week of the 4th, arriving Monday or Tuesday and heading back on Saturday to avoid the traffic.

      I did not get out this past weekend due to weather and wind but the weekend before we started to make contact with walleyes but only seemed to find the 13-15" fish.  We caught them in the 14-20ft range using jigging raps, rapalas, and lindy with a worm.  We caught a couple on Cross and the others on Whitefish.  I am going to try and slip up there for a night or 2 this weekend with the weather predicted to be nice and see if I can't find a few fish.  Good luck!
