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.

      I'm gonna let you in on a secret that I discovered many years ago on a lake that had low numbers of very large Crappies. We all know that sunset is a time when Crappies become hungry and active. They seem to appear out of nowhere and after a half hour flurry of action, they disappear just as quickly. Often when fishing this lake I would get a bite or two if I was lucky. One night a friend and I were set up in my usual spot and right on time, we started catching fish. We ended up catching over a dozen 13.5"-15.75" Crappies that evening. About halfway through the action, as we realized we were doing much better than I ever had on that lake, my friend commented on the full moon. It was just peeking above the trees, and the beautiful sunset was on the opposite horizon. Not realizing what provoked that prolonged action, we both were eager to go back 4 days later. I got 1 fish, he had 1 bite, as was typical for the lake. Puzzled, we were talking about our last trip, and we came to the conclusion that the sunset and moonrise combo was the cause of the outstanding action. People talk about the full moon creating better activity "because the fish can see better". I am VERY convinced that is NOT the reason.  Musky fisherman know about the power that the moon has. With moon rise, moon set etc. being times when a big fish is more likely to strike.  Other fish like huge Crappies feel the power as well. When the moon is full, moon rise and sunset occur at about the same time. The combination of both high percentage times at once creates a MAGICAL window that occurs once per month.  Since then I have capitalized on this monthly occurrence many many times, for walleye, eelpout and musky as well as the crappies. It is way more than just a coincidence it is MAGIC!! Sometimes the days before and after the full moon are also excellent, occasionally 1 is even better than the full moon night. But any time you are planning a trip for a challenging species or difficult location try to be there at that magical period and you will improve your odds of success.  It doesn't matter if its cloudy and the moon is not visible the magic is still there. Hopefully you can unlock the potential of a lake with this little tip.    Remember that C.P.R. (Catch-Photo-Release) is key to catching bigger fish as well as the key to the future of fishing.

      Out tonight with the kids, honeycomb ice on the top 2 inches with water over the sheet of thick ice. Exposed shorelines are soft, my dog and kids broke through while walking. Even though the shores are shot for driving I’m guessing we’ll have good walkable ice (waders) for a while...

      Haha - ya I spose!  Only we weren’t shooting paper.  Painted steel hanging targets with a spotter and spotting scope. Drive to em to paint em but no retrieval.

      Got out for a couple hours yesterday. West end of Francis again, several small sunnies but no crappies this time. Access is pretty beat up, need waterproof boots but the ice is holding up so far. Couple guys had an Argo out.
