Does anyone know anything about the crappie bite on Green Lake in Chisago? Its next to chisago lake and I always see plenty of people out there but never have had any luck myself. I've heard about some eyes too but never have caught either.

cgw,

There's a pretty decent population of walleyes in Green from what I've seen. Now, what I've seen have been incidental walleyes while summer bass fishing. However, I've caught quite a few.

What time of day are you fishing? I think you'd up your odds fishing at dawn and dusk. If I were going to hit that body of water, I'd look at Limberg's point on the west side of the deeper basin of the lake. Or, there's a gravel/boulder bar running north-south just west of the public access. It doesn't really show on a map, so it's kind of hard to describe how to find it. There's a small land point on the south shore with a flag pole on it. Go straight north about 300 yards and you're on it. It runs out into the lake quite a ways from there.

Anyone else got some handy pointers for cgw?

ray,
thanks for the tip. i've fished that lake for years just to catch and release the bass because its so much action and fun in the winter but i've rarely given the walleyes or crappies a shot because i've never heard of many people coming out with anything. i'll definitely look into that.

You are correct - the minimum size is 9 inches. My son and I fished the west bay last Sunday (better than watching the Vikes!). We caught about 20 crappies but released them all - a few might have met the minimum. We fished in about 7 feet of water.

According to the 2003 Fishing Regulations crappie has to be 9". There is nothing about any size on Walleye.

That's for Green I'm not sure about Chisago. But I have been checked on Green, so I know that one for sure. There should be a sign at the boat landing, stateing the size limits. Good luck

The sign at the access is out of date or the new DNR rules and regs book is inaccurate. The 2003 reg's only say the minimum size is for crappies, which is 9", nothing is mentioned for walleye.

Not sure of why there is all this confusion. Read the regs. Green is within the ceded territory (page 25 of the regs) which includes lakes in Aitkin, Chisago, Crow Wing, Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Pine, Sherburne, and Washington. This means that you must check for signs at the lake regarding walleye sizes and/or limits on lakes within these counties. There are currently signs on the access stating a 17 inch minimum size limit. I would obey those signs. There is a 9 inch minimum size limit for crappies (page 30 of the regs).

      Same here, our 1st color unit, 520 c(?), had that type of transducer(blue/5 pin) & it didn't last 1, maybe 2 seasons. We replaced it & the 2nd lasted much longer.

      I had a lot of problems with Lowrance transducers of that sort of vintage, the ones with the blue connectors.   It seemed to me that they didn't deal well with being frozen.   Now I store my transducers inside in the winter (I know that isn't possible when ice fishing).   I went through 3 or 4 transducers before realizing the problem.   Try borrowing a transducer to try.   Sounds exactly like what mine did.  Gradually lost sensitivity and would lose the bottom.

      Conditions for snowmobile riding in many parts of the state are as good as they’ve been in a long time, prompting what Department of Natural Resources conservation officers call the biggest number of riders in years to hit the state’s 22,000 miles of snowmobile trails. While zipping around on a sled is a great way to experience Minnesota’s snow-covered outdoors, Enforcement officials remind riders to leave the booze on the shelf or in the refrigerator until after they’re done riding. Alcohol is a factor in more than 70 percent of snowmobile-related fatalities in Minnesota. And it isn’t just intoxicated drivers who pay the price for their bad decisions. Earlier this month, Eric Coleman was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison for a tragic incident last year when the snowmobile he was driving struck and killed 8-year-old Alan Geisenkoetter Jr. Coleman, who was drunk and whose driver’s license was revoked when he crashed into the boy, had multiple previous DWIs in a motor vehicle. The incident prompted state lawmakers to close loopholes in the state’s DWI law. “We hope the increased penalties for people convicted of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence will cause them to think twice before drinking and riding. But they won’t bring back Alan or heal the damage this senseless crash caused his family,” said Jen Mueller, a regional training officer in the DNR Enforcement Division and the agency’s Enforcement Education Officer of the Year. “There’s never an excuse to drink and drive and we have no tolerance for people who do it.” The new law – Little Alan’s Law – went into effect Aug. 1, 2018. It means people convicted of driving while intoxicated – regardless of the vehicle they’re driving – lose their driver’s license and are prohibited from operating motor vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles, motorboats and snowmobiles. Before the law change, people convicted of DWI in a highway-licensed vehicle still could legally operate ATVs, motorboats and snowmobiles. The changes apply to violations that occurred on or after Aug. 1, 2018. The DNR anticipates Little Alan’s Law will affect more than 2,000 people each month in Minnesota. But since the law requires a DWI conviction – and these cases take time to move through the court system – specific numbers aren’t yet available.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
