Any daytime/afternoon bite on Green lately? Thinking of heading out for a few hours on Saturday to enjoy the mild weather and new ice!

Where was this thin ice? Are the trucks that are driving out sticking to a certain path?

Went out on Saturday for the afternoon. Trucks were everywhere, ice was about 15"+. Picked up a few crappies in 24' off the point. Lots of small perch to keep the lines busy.

Is it just me or are the crappies on green paper thin. I was getting them anywhere between 8-10", but there seemed to be no meat to them. Thoughts!!!

Any further reports of thin ice (5") ??? I was thinking of driving out this Saturday, but the earlier poor ice conditions on area lakes in general still have me a bit concerned... It's been a weird year for ice....

I was thinking of trying Glyers Bay on the south end for pike. Is anyone aware of any springs or other things that might cause thin ice in the area?

This is what is in the Outdoor News newspaper: Jan. 28: Isanti Knights of Columbus Ice Fishing Contest, 1-3 p.m., Green Lake. I never have fished this or the Princeton contest (also on Green in Feb.) so I don't know how crowded it gets.

Isn't that contest on the Green Lake in Isanti county? Or is that the one you guys are talking about. I was assuming that you mean the one by Chisago.

      Hello Friends   Well it appears our dock company will not be able to lift our dock this season (Frazer Bay/Smart's Bay area) due to his lifting barge only being in this area first weekend in October and we like to keep the dock in until after MEA (this year ending October 21). Any suggestions? It's a pretty simple A Frame with a ladder and an L. I know I could do it myself, but have always preferred to have someone else do it.   Thanks for any insight

      The panfish tip above is a good tip for Webb. I grew up fishing that lake and I'd say good luck! I haven't caught anything worthwhile in the boat on Webb in years. Tips vary based on species, but the points are good and look for the "hidden treasures"

      Curious what that cost to have it surveyed if you don't mind sharing.

      Questions. Would you like something on a motor route. Stick to or fish smaller lakes. Travel distance. How many days.

      If you have an aluminum boat and open access to bottom of the hull, you can just set the transducer in a little puddle of water inside the boat.  The signal of a working unit will read just fine through the hull.

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.
