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The sign at the access is out of date or the new DNR rules and regs book is inaccurate.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).

      Fished for a few hours this afternoon after the rain went through and the wind died down a bit. Tried a good dozen places in between black bay and the Brule and only got around 10 fish for the effort. The water was still pretty much ice cold at a cool 65 degrees in the main lake. We checked a few off shore reefs and saw zero signs of life on the ones we checked. The places we did get a few fish was were there was a rock to mud transition near shore on points. All in all another tough outing for us and on a side note, on the way in we pulled cranks in shallow water and the May flys were thick on the surface on the wind blown side.

      I fished at the Forbes canoe access below the dam one day. And caught a 16 inch on a fly. I will give it a float and report back after the fourth

      Any tips on smallies up there? First time coming up.

      Nice report as usual, Hoey. We are fishing Wed and Thurs. Sounds like it will be ugly hot coming up. Hopefully, the fish will finally get into their summer patterns.

      Definitely hit up some trails. My kids love to hike and explore. They surprise me with their willingness to keep trekking along. 
    • JBMasterAngler
      As long as there are bugs to eat, the trout will always hit the surface. As summer progresses, there will be less and less trout to catch.

      Does it ever quit blowing?  Tough conditions this week. Fish scattered all over the place.  Bass hitting the best, panfish the least. Walleyes in the middle.  Best for us has been late afternoon on lindys and leeches. Nothing great but with the warmup coming I think things will improve. Did see a 7-8 lber caught ,  on a Daredevil of all things.  Keep the beer cold.  Go get em.  Rayguy

      Hey guys! We were up last weekend but only got to fish for a few hours. We caught a bunch of pike anywhere from mid teens in length to the low 20” range. We also caught a few bass and a few walleyes. Biggest eye was 19. We contacted all our fish from 16-20 feet. Most of our bites came on a jig and minnow. My wife and brother and law were trolling spinners but only managed pike. We did try crawlers without any success but again we were only out for a few hours. We fished on whitefish and targeted bars and a couple of wind blown underwater points. Good luck this weekend! Maybe we’ll see ya out there!
