Dumb Green Lake Walleyes!


Recommended Posts

Was out on Sunday night trying to do some peaceful trophy smallmouth fishing and the dumb walleyes wouldn't stay off of our lines. One after another after another (all good size). We did manage a 20", 19", and a 18 3/4 inch for smallies. Hopefully I'll have better luck today (with the smallies that is). wink.gif

Jim, jigging crawlers in 10 FOW...location (I really don't want to give that up)...hint...if you search around on this site you'll find your answer!

Not too many walleyes tonight on Green. My neighbor and I managed to find a 20",19", and a few 18.5 inchers for smallies. The bite has seemed to slow down a tad.

Lol, well I went out monday night in search of eyes up shallow (6'-12') and all I could get is smallies. Got a few nice ones too. Couldnt keep those pesky things off my line. smirk.gif

I will be out there this weekend. I heard the walleye bite is tough so I am going to target some smallies. Is is worth going out in the morning? I like to spot fish them with jigs and plastic. Will this be productive?

My brother and I fished the Little Crow tourney and ended up in about 30th with about 3 pounds. I probably caught 60 lbs. of smallies out there in those two days.

Bigfife, the morning can be an excellant time to catch smallies on Green. In fact I've had the best luck so far this season during the morning. Also try an hour or two before dark. This can also be productive.

We've found that the bite seems to be better when its overcast...or when there is low light conditions (dawn and dusk).

Spot fishing may be tough, as I found the bigger bronzebacks in deeper water with a little bit of a chop on the water.

I'd say go for it. Green Lake is a World Class smallmouth fishery right now. I've been AVERAGING 18 inch plus fish! Catch and release the biggins while you can before the DNR opens the regs on them and they will all be gone in a year or two. frown.gif

Smallmouths in green are like carp in the mississippi, you can catch them whenever and wherever. Just drop a slip bobber and a leech in 10-14 feet on any drop, you'll have more than you can eat. Any fool can (and will) catch smallmouths on green. It takes zero talent/thinking/preparation. So... Not much sport in it but yeah, you can catch as many as you want until you are sick of it. Good times for a while. Start eating 'em until the DNR can fix their embarrasing mistake and gets the lake balanced again. Incidentally, I toured the hatchery in new london- you hear a lot of "we aren't exactly sure why.." and "..for some reason, the fish seem to.." Yup, DNR in Minnesota- finding the best way to help develop natural/wild areas since 19whenever.

Earlier this year I read about some of you guys catching a lot of rock bass on green. Was wondering if there still biting and on what or how. Wife and I might try on the fourth. If walleye don't bite maybe try them.

Lol, rock bass are always biting! wink.gif

I would try in the 20' depth with a jig and worm. Or if you want you can bobber fish too. You might even run into a nice sized sunfish too. Or should I say you might even run into a walleye or a smallie.

Rock bass are good to eat. I eat them when I target them and dont have a problem. But when Im going after walleyes and catch them, they are my worst enemy. lol

If the weather is nice on the fourth it may be tough fishing with all the nuts out on the lake. Spicer is usually crazy with the lake even crazier. Be careful.
