We went on our annual overnight fishing trip to Green Lake for the second year this year.  While the fishing was slow we were able to pull out some 20+ inch Small  Mouth Bass.

The first day we caught the first Small Mouth on a Green Bay Packer, Green and Gold Spoon as seen in the pics.  Only one hit and we landed it while casting in 15ft of water over weeds just South of the Baptist Assembly.

The second day we fished the weed line in front of Nortons restaurant.  We hammered the perch that were all thrown back due to their small size.  Must have caught over 50 of them.  In addition, my father caught his nice Small Mouth Bass on a Lindy rig in the same area as the perch were biting.

Marked substantial large fish at 100ft of water but did not fish them as we believe they were most likely Lake Trout.  Weather was misty rain on and off with Temps in the low to mid 60's Water temp was 58 degrees.  Wind was approx. 5-8 mph.

Best of Luck to all who fish Big Green..  The big fish are there..  Find the bait fish and the big fish are right there too...

What a difference a guided trip can make.

We've been fishing this lake 4 or 5 times in the past few years, and have never caught a walleye. (or a trout yet) so we hire Tim Euting of Get Em Hooked Guide Service. Money well spent.  We went 9 for 11 for a half day cruise. The biggest being 25 inches. Unfortunately i lost an even bigger one, and caught 5 on our own the next 2 days. So yes we learned and excelled.

Very professional, and hard working. he was go, go, go.

So thanks Tim, hopefully we'll get you next year for a day on Winnebago.

Mike still wants his trout tho, so who knows, maybe two trips. Lol

I know I landed right on the smallies at 7:00 am today they were chasing baitfish and smashing the surface all around me but I just couldn't get one to bite I couldn't even get a follow.  I was throwing jerk baits and just couldn't make it happen.  I switched to senkos and drop shots around 8:00 and started putting fish in the boat.  Once that sun came up they moved deeper and I had a hard time getting them to bite.  I didn't crush em today but  I had 2 friends catch their first smallies so that was a big success.

Only fished big green twice looking to go out next weekend for some eyes smallies or gills .

Would anyone be willing to help me out . I like finding spots on my own hate like heck asking but it's such a huge body of water I figured some help is better than none . 

 Bringing my dad with who never fished it before . I finally talked him into coming down he's stuck with the wisconsin river below castle rock dam ( stubborn old polock stuck in his ways ) 


Was thinking of launching out of dodge county but that could change

Hot weather over the weekend kept the bite slow, but we did catch a few nice ones. Highlights were when my son landed a 3lb largemouth on a crawler while fishing for perch off the side of the boat. I landed a fat 21" walleye trolling a Northern King spoon at sunset on Saturday and then a 28" northern in same 12' depth at sunset Sunday using same set up.

Fished Friday with one guy from 8am till 4pm we started with the steep break with swim baits and texas rig this last a hour and only a couple little largemouths. We went under a few (or more) shallow docks with jigs and texas rig worm with a couple more little largemouths. We shift gears and go with a deep drift with the c-rig and catch and release a nice eye then redrift nope time to move. We set up in 10ft with swimbait and I go to a tube the swimbait struck first and when I went to a swim instead of drag I was on we had something going so we move and set up in 12ft casting in and it was tube on with smallmouth hitting hard and jumping high what a awesome place.

Fishing was good at first light but as boat traffic increased it slowed way down. Caught all fish in 30-49 foot of water.

Bradd2:

A couple ways to go about it. You can do what you do in the winter and jig minnows in 80 to 120 feet or so. Or trolling with down riggers is another way to go. Again, the same depth. Trolling I use cowbell flashers with a Sutton spoon on the end. In any case, I suggest using your fish finder if you have one to mark where the lakers are, or to mark where the schools of Cisco are that the trout are feeding on and then go for it. Also watch for Walkers (big Green pontoon) and Norton's (big white pontoon) charter boats to see where they are fishing to give you an idea as to the best current trout locations. Typically though there's a run from the east end river mouth toward Dartford Bay, another along the Sliding Rock shore and another off of Malcom Bay and Pigeon Cove heading toward Norwegian Bay. That's all the info I have.
