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The sign at the access is out of date or the new DNR rules and regs book is inaccurate.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

      I also have a north facing cabin at the bottom of the hill and I have the Weboost as well.  without it I just barely have reception and with it mounted to the outside of the cabin I can get enough reception for calla and texts (2-3 bars) and slow internet. I plan on mounting it in a tree this spring and should get better reception yet. I paid $399 at best buy for mine about a year ago.

      cg2, Welcome to the forum.   You may try looking at the DNR Lake finder site to look up some of the lakes in your new area for their test results.  Good luck.

      Hello all,   I am new to the area and don't know where to begin fishing. I'm looking for a lake around Mankato that has walleye / crappies in it. I would like to make it out a few times this fall yet and then hit the ice hard. Any advice on what lakes to start with? There's so many that I don't know how to choose which one to go to. 
    • MinnowBuckets
      Gonna try and get out for a bit over the weekend and hit some shore spots. Will post a report if they bite.

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.  
    • eyeguy 54
      Hows the action. Got out a couple times and it was fun. 
    • eyeguy 54
      congrats on the PB ! great time of the year. great pic!
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them 
    • eyeguy 54
      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.
