Had not fished here for over 20 years and wondered what took me so long to get back as we had two good days on last Wednesday and Thursday. Using senkos up shallow around the docks and also throwing rouges and shad-raps in 6- 10 feet, we managed 45 smallies and largies plus also getting 6 or 7 pike. Best bass was a 3-10 largemouth and a 3-6 smallmouth. Quite a few also in the 2-3 pound range. Stayed mainly on the north shore as the SW wind provided a nice chop blowing in on the shore.

Another day of trolling for Lake Trout and nothing. Started at AM trolled across from Horners all the way to the end of the lake and back again. Locator full of fish at 50 to 145 feet but no bites. Used down riggers and spoons and plugs and jigged for 4 1/2 hours with nothing to show for it. Just can't catch a Trout in this lake. Any pointers from you that are lucky. At what depth is the thermocline ? Thanks

I was talking with Walker today and he told me 1 of the trout he caught yesterday was 40 inches and weighed about 25 lbs holy moley. Guess there still some big ones in the lake but you have to know how to fish for them. Im guessing that fish was about 50 years old WOW When I get a pix I will show it Kiss

Thanks for the info guys, I decided on Norton. I looked at Justin before and thought about talking her into his service; then realized I got obsessed with Big Green after the first time I was on it too. Norton seems more willing to target other fish if the lakers are not biting; that was what decided me.

Thanks again,

Mark

On Saturday, 5/16/15, we got fishing after lunch. Dropping a thermometer at the pier (in shade) the water measured 48 degrees on the SE shore. We trolled small crankbaits up and down the SE shore with no action. We drifted and cast a 3" rubber worm (kind of clear gray with sparkles) and a night crawler both in front of the Pilgrim Camp (6 fow out to 20 fow) and just west of Horner's Landing (8 fox out to 45 fow). Nothing whatsoever.

We switched over to the NE shore. My dad put on a LiveTarget Crappie (the 2" size) and caught a 18" and 23" pike and a 12 inch smallmouth while trolling from Miller's towards Dartford Bay. He caught another 25" pike on the NE shore just outside of the bay. All fish were caught in 7 to 9 fow while trolling.

At dusk I caught a 13" smallmouth off the pier on a 2" generic Norman style crankbait (rusty orange/yellow color).

On Sunday, 5/17/15, I trolled the SE shore with the same crankbait and got nothing. On the NE shore I caught a 13.5" smallmouth just east of the Heidel House and a 14" white bass right in front of the Heidel House (same lure). With the hard SE wind, boat control was an issue and I returned to the SE shore (calm). There my dad caught a 27" pike on a scatter rap (bluegill pattern). All fish caught in 7 to 9 fow.

Water at the pier on Sunday morning measured 50 degrees.

Thank you to Justin Kohn for his post earlier in the week, the depths he posted gave me an area to target.

The NE shore seemed a lot more active. Was this random? Is the north shore a bit warmer due to sun exposure? A bit warmer due to the surface water being blown to that side all weekend?

My fish finder showed consistent clouds in 6 to 12 fow on the NE shore that were extremely rare on the SE shore. Are these clouds baitfish or plankton or something else? (I have an old Huminbird Wideview that displays fish icons in 3 sizes for fish - these just show up as clouds of pixels) Does the presence of the clouds indicate the better place to fish? (I think it does)

Does my habit of fishing the calm shore for comfort and ease of handling the boat have a negative impact on my success? Is the windy side typically better fishing?

If anyone would like to comment go ahead and send me a message.

I would recommend Justin Kohn also. Years ago I expressed some frustration with a particular fishing method and he PMd me and provided the expert answer I was looking for. Even spent 20 minutes on the phone with me. Resulted in years of great fishing experiences for me and my family. Call Justin.

Badwolf, Norton and Walker are more specialized in lake trout and large groups. They are nice guys but you should also consider Justin Kohn. He's an all species guide and does a great job. I was just out with him last week and it was a blast!

Badwolf, Yes Dennis is a very knowledgeable guide. He knows the lake like the back of his hand and he is a good teacher with a calm laid back personality. Perfect for those who want to learn and have a goodtime on his pontoon. I f fish are biting he will find them. Have fun!!!

My daughter wants a charter trip for lakers on Big Green for her and a friend for her HS graduation. Any suggestions for a good charter? I have a flyer from Dennis Walker but I don't know how good he is. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

First trip ever to Big Green. Caught several hundred Gills, Crappie, Rock Bass, and even a good number of small to medium size LM. All came back in shallow bays on a worm with a float. We did get some on a Roadrunner as well. We had 10 Gills @ or over 8.5" and 2 over 9". We had 2 of our bigger Crappie @ 12.5. Awesome lake and enjoyed my first time on it.
