Does anyone know anyone know where ciscos spawn on Big Green? Do they spawn shallow or deep? I've had one person tell me they spawn deep, adjacent to rocky areas. Another guy told me they spawn in shallow bays. Does anyone really know where they spawn on big green? I don't fish for them or like eating them, just curious to see what the real answer is and know which guy is full of bs. Thanks. Fin

Ouch. IDK for certain, it's been a few weeks since I've been out, but I'd start by finding weedlines in 8-15 FOW and work the edges of the weedlines. Live bait on a jig head, or maybe with a beetlespin too. Maybe throw a reed runner over the top of the weeds. These are the things I'd start with for pike and walleye, some nice smallies will probably show up. Early or late for eyes, anytime of the day for pike. If that doesn't produce then you know the drill, move shallower or deeper and switch up the bait. I have not targeted panfish on GL.

I'm not 100% sure but have been hearing quit a few reports saying the fish are bitting in the water, with only a couple of people finding some rough fish on shore, but the shore fish seem to be few and far between.

Thanks for the info. Paying not a problem. Just wanted to know if I needed some singles or fives. Haven't been on Big Green for quite a few years since sold the family cottage right down the road on Lake Shore Drive. Itching for something different then down here, so decided to come try for some smallies.

Fished Thursday afternoon 2 and half hours, 16 crappies with 5 thirteen to fourteen inches. The rest 9 to 12. Sent them home with my son in law and grand son. Went out alone Friday pm and got 9 with 4 twelve to thirteen inches. All but 4 (gave those to a couple guys in a pontoon boat) still swimming. Rain then soaked me down and made for a damp ride back to house. Try the weed edges 10 to 12 foot with small spinner bait.

Daybreak yesterday, once again found me on the water. I had to try my new sonar unit. Hit a mid-lake bar and caught 19 big white bass and about 3 times as many smallmouths. Fish were hitting in 30-40 feet of water but in the top 10 feet. The biggest smallmouth was about 3-3 1/2 pounds, nothing big. Kahlins Slim 3" in rainbow or Tenn. shad were very effective.

Finally figured something out, rocky gravel cut by shore. (Worked last year too) wacky senko and not green. Who knew. 26 smb in 2 hours. 9:30 to 11:30. Slept in too. Not huge, big fish was 2.5# with a couple close to 2#. But smallies fight like hell so all felt 1 or 2 lbs bigger. My son caught most of these fish. All on 4# test line pictures will come.

Better consistency today with several doubles. Threw wacky senko's in the rock rubble cuts close to shore. Caught 15 or 20 smb from 1lb through several 2+# Hooks pulled on 3 fish much larger. Normally we land these but today was not the big fish day.
