First time out on Big Green this past Saturday. It looked like lake Tahoe during spring break. It was hard to find a parking spot. I am hoping this was just the case because it was the 4th of July holiday. Sunny and not much wind. I was in a 16 foot alumnicraft boat and we motored around for a couple hours trying to find a semi calm area (even small waves would have been fine) but there were so many pleasure crafts out there that the waves swells were a bit much. I had to keep pointing the bow into the waves to keep water from splashing over the sides. We ended up just leaving and never put a line in the water. Can anyone tell me if this is typical of weekends in general or just because it was a holiday and nice out. Is there a time of day or days of the week when it is much calmer out there and more conducive to fishing? I have heard great things about the fishing on this lake but this past Saturday was pure insanity. Would like to go back out there and try again but it is a bit hard with that kind of wave and boating action.

Thanks for any info you can provide.

It was our outside board that we were targeting 35 foot of water. We measured the trout at 31", we did not put it on the scale. We know that they have been stocked, however this is the first we have ever seen.

This is a late posting. Was out with some friends last week on Green Lake, and we had a nice mixed bag of fish. Some nice smallmouth, (biggest being 20"), northern pike and walleye. We were running worm harnesses and we were all surprised at this bonus fish, which was caught on the west end. Landed it and returned it back to the water, what a great memory for Larry, Neil, and myself.

Anything happening on Big Green Lake in reference to crappies or Blue gills ? If not, when do you think it should start ?

Can you tell me what areas you were catching them in a canoe? I have a small boat so would like to stay on calmer water areas.

Smoker66 you're presuming that just because people are fishing for gills that the bass bite is not good? It's better in my opinion to catch a nice batch of gills to eat.

The bass bite has been HOTTTT for me. 7-11 ft deep out in my canoe. Been caught 10-12 smallies per trip. Biggest one was 5.1 lbs but I've only caught one that was under 14 inches. Strictly CPR but I measure them all before they're released.

Guys, just looking for a little help based on the previous few reports. I have been fishing in 8 to 15 feet all over the north shore and even over by Tuleta Hills. I saw giant smallies spawning mid june and looks like they are done. They would move the bait out of the nest and just pick it up. They were not hammering it. No hook ups.

I have been using leeches with split shots and slip bobber rigs and casting 3 inch pumpkin tubes. Very little action. Only a few large perch or male smallie here and there.

Can you tell me...are you fishing the east end? Heidel Bar? Dartford? I am fishing around 7 to 10 am on weekends and I have not seen many folks picking up much besides the panfishing folks. I have seen guys sitting over bluegill beds, 3 grown men in a boat fishing small bluegills for hours in 2 feet of water. It tells me that maybe the bass bite is tough at times. Any help would be very much appreciated. THanks!

Fished most of this week on Big Green. Largemouth and Smallmouth have been biting well and it was nice to pick up an occasional walleye. Our best fish were 20 and 19" Smallies and a 23" Walleye.
