Green Lake


Recommended Posts

I read with great interest all the posts from people that think that Green Lake water quality is better than ever,and the reason that the weeds continue to reach deeper is because of that. I beg to differ with that opinion. I have fished Green Lake since the early 1960`s and at that time you could see a dime in 20 ft. of water. There was even a billboard along the hiway from Willmar to Spicer bragging that Green Lake was the second purest lake in the world. Going with that reasoning, Green must now be the purest in the world. I think not!!! We used to be able to fish anywhere in the lake in 15 ft. and never hook weeds. The reason that the weeds are gradually going deeper is because of all the nutrients and sediment that have come into the lake over the years.

If you could truly see a dime in 20 feet of water the walleye fishing had to be extremely tough back then. If you could see a dime in 20ft you must have been able to see a 5lb walleye in 60ft. Walleye fisherman now should be happy they don't have to tend to those conditions if that is true about the past history of the lake?????????????

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....
