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The sign at the access is out of date or the new DNR rules and regs book is inaccurate.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 the SW corner today about 2 miles out. Lowest amount of ice I found was 10" and a few spots well over 20". Before anyone gets too excited I'm pretty sure these spots were where the ice push up on itself or below itself. Rough ice in general. Marked a lot of fish, tried everything and eventually got a few at dusk on a dead stick and a spoon. No big cracks but a few about half a foot and completely open. Nice to get out but was a long walk out and back.

      Well I wish you guys would do it after walleye closes. The last few years you guys have done it on the final weekend of walleye  so some people won't do it . Cats don't close so you can do it whenever you want.

      Didn't get to swing the sledge on Saturday. Had a bum ankle that has kept me sidelined and was feeling pretty good on Friday so I got out and about shopping. May have over did it and suffered a little bit of a set back but it's pretty good today. Should be able to swing the hammer tomorrow.

      Open water right in front of launch on linwood. 2 guys went through this morning. Up to their waists in water. Just be careful walking out. Had 9 inches everywhere I drilled on the lake.
