I don't know if your familiar with Big Green. But there is a big drop of on the west end of the lake. It goes from about 15ft down all the way to 200ish in the middle. If you fish right on the edge. Jig for walleye with leeches or walleye minnows on a 1/4 oz - 1/2 jig head. For panfish find weeds and im sure you"ll find them, just use a panfish jig/hook and worms. Bass and pike along weed eges and the shallows. Just any bass lures should work for both.From shore go to the bridge on K. Bottom fish with a simple sliding sinker rig. For channel cats cut bait or worms on the bottom. Beware you might catch some carp too so keep your drag set.

Hope this helps.

Hello all. I will be visiting family for around 10 days in Ripon. I planned on doing some fishing at Green Lake and surrounding areas. I will be in Ripon on May 15 and could use some advise on what and where to fish for on Green Lake. I plan to do a combination of game and pan fishing, as well as, fishing from boat and from shore. I could use some advice on what to fish for, technique and equipment/tackle to use. Any advice at all would be appreciated. Thanks! Smile

Thanks for the info. on Chena Bait. Anyone know were I can purchase some relatively close to Sheboygan or do I have to contact the Company and have it shipped ?

Whiskers, anything happening for Crappies or Blue Gills. If nothing happening now, when do you anticipate it to start. The drive is 1 1/2 hour drive from Sheboygan. Any info. would be appreciated

looking for some info. A couple years ago we were watch a program (it may have been Mid West fishing program) were there were using a pan fish bait, on Big Green, that they tore a piece of this artificial bait and put it on a hook and you could catch umpteen number of fish without putting another piece on. I believe it came in a container and it looks similar to pork rine on a roll. I ask at a major box store and a clerk said it's been around forever but they did not carrier it. I'm 67 years old and have a little slippage and don't remember what it was called. Would like to give it a try.

Anything happening on Big Green as far as Crappies or Blue Gills ?

to fish by snagging, foul-hooking, or attempting to hook fish other than in the mouth. to keep foul-hooked, snagged or any fish not hooked in the mouth. to take fish other than rough fish by hand.

Iegally you can NOT try snag carp. But if you accidently snag one, just make sure you release it. Or you can go to the link below and look through the spearing and netting regs. Its really easy to catch them in the mouth too. Just a small hook a couple splitshots, sweet corn as bait and cast it out there and let it sit.

Rough Fish Suckers, redhorse, carp, and other rough fish (unless listed as threatened or endangered, p. 14) may be taken by hand or hook and line.
