Lots of small fish. Small gills, perch and bass. Few keepers.
The gills (and some perch) are still near my pier and I've had luck with Rattlin Spooks for Northern off the pier. I cant really whip much else that isn't a shallow runner (like 1 foot diver max) or top water due to the weeds.
Maybe try some Walleye minnows on a bobber? I've had luck with both approaches this year and you may get some walleyes as well in the evening.

Going to have to get some more bluegills this week-end. I hope they're still hanging around in 5 - 10 feet of water. I don't feel like looking for them! Just made some smoked fish dip with the last batch!
Same northern (I think) keeps following my x-rap all the way to the pier. I just picked up a big white and red dare devil, maybe he'll hit that? Any ideas what else I should try - Mepps, Suick, topwater popper? Hell with it, I'll try everything!

Saturday was bass, perch, gills and Sunday was a Northern. Saw a ton of boat activity Saturday and it seemed that most casts were fish for like an hour. Spent hours for musky until the blisters got to me, got nothing and went to cranks which paid off on a lot of fun fish. Dock was all gills and perch. Saw a lot of boats catching bass and one guy cruising by the dock at 1030 am said he already has 20 fish caught and released. Killer weekend for me.
Wednesday night open big bass tourney tonight @6pm. Register at the public boat launch next to the campground by 545pm. $20 per boat, 2 anglers max per boat. Winner determined by big bass weight. Each boat can bring in 2 bass and could possibly win first and second place. Only 19 boats allowed.
Just1 and Noob. Please keep up with the great reports! I love reading them! I only fish little green a few times a year, but have grown to love this lake ever since my father in law introduced me to it years ago. What a great fishery and love that there's a bar/restaurant right on the lake. Good luck gentlemen and keep up the great reports! Tight lines.

Out on my pier Sunday night casting all over for some Bluegill. Just an occassional small bluegill, perch or bass. Then I layed my pole on the pier to open my beer. The hook and worm dropped a foot or two in the water and was immediately devoured by an 8" bluegill. I caught 10 more within a foot of the pier - all eight inches or better - go figure. Saturday morning I was reeling in a small bluegill and it got grabbed by a 35 or so inch Musky. It couldn't have been hooked but it wouldn't let go of the gill. I fought it for about 20 seconds before it broke my four pound line - thank god, I had no idea what I was going to do. My week-end highlights.
