Whitefish on Green Lake

Recommended Posts

tritonman

Has anyone been icefishing for whitefish on Green lake? There are tons of them in there but I've never tried icefishing for them on Green. In the GloryDays of Leech lake you could catch hundreds of them a day! They are a blast. Don't need spots, just curious if anyone does it.

Tullibee's are in Green lake, the population is unclear. My uncle would gill nett them in the fall, when the DNR opened the lake for that. As for ice fishing many guys in the area would rather wait for spring then, spend time fishing tullibee's. I would like to try for them but a 4wheeler would be needed at this time to chase these little (1/2 to 2lb)fishes. Maybe if more guys around the area would give it a shot they may find a whole new late winter fishery.

I used to net in them in the fall also. But in the past five years two of the old timers I netted with passed away and the nets haven't seen the water in two years. They are a blast to catch through the ice though. I've always had my best luck using a flasher(like a spoon) and then another foot of line with a teardrop sunfish hook tipped with waxworms. They fight hard and when you get on a school of them the action is non-stop.

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.
