First off... Green in myopinion is probably the better walleye lake. However it does have a slot and if we are being honest.. you will probably not catch many fish that are keepers.. but you will stay busy... Chisago has some walleye in it..but not as many. The size might be a little nicer, but you willnot catch as many. In any lake.. I would look to the weed edges right now.

Deitz - is there more than one access on Green? The one on the East side of the lake was pretty shallow a month ago, and I was wondering if there's a deeper one to put in at?

There is an access on little green that is connected to Big green and that access is nice and deep. I know how to get there but can't name the roads for you. i think it is off of green lake ave which parralels Old Towne Road about two blocks to the west. I just put my Crestliner 1850 Sportfish into Green on Tuesday using the Launch you are talking about with no problems. I had to use the east side of the lauch as it is deeper on that side but I had no problem. a month ago I was not able to launch and had to use the little green access.

So the rain has brought it up a bit, then? Cool... I think I know how to get to that access on Little Green now that you mention it. I believe I used it once a couple years ago to get on for ice fishing.

Thanks for the update... cool.gif

as stated there is an access on little green.. the one on the south side of the lake that has the 2 ramps, if looking at thelake the ramp on the left is quite a bit deeper than the ramp on the right. So if you have a boat that needs a little more depth to get off the trailer, use the east/left one.

Slick, I don't think the rain has brought it up, but the access you are talking about has two ramps. When you are ready to launch, when you look out at the lake from the ramps, use the one on the right, it is about 2 feet deeper than the one on the left. I had the truck all the way in the water and still had to roll the boat off the trailer on the left ramp, but the right ramp just put the back tires of the truck in and you are good to go.

      I have an STP frog cutter so I make my own.

      The torque tab counters the pull caused by the rotation of the prop.   Trimming the outboard in or out(up & down) can make a pull show up or go away.   Your Merc uses an allen wrench or a socket and extension to reach the bolt to loosen the torque tab.  Merc uses a right hand rotation.  If the bow wants to turn right by itself you would move the torque tab towards to the center.

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓

      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.

      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!

      Thanks, James! That weather really put fish on the move. Our focus for the tournament was to get two big bites and catch a pair over 26". We felt like in order to do that we had to go west. We had a milk run of spots that were taking big wind so we just rotated through them during the day. Our fish came from 3'-13' casting jerkbaits, Rippin Raps and swimbaits. My dad had been catching a lot of walleyes on shallow rocks while pre-fishing for the bass tourney which really tipped us off on some locations and presentations. We only caught six walleyes during the tournament but they were the right ones. We feel unbelievably fortunate to have had such an awesome experience!
