    I took advantage of the mild evening at launched my tube into green lake. I fished it earlier in the week in a squall and got skunked. Yestarday i managed afew small rainbows trolling a burnt orange seal bugger on an intermediat line. Suprised to see a fair amount of chrinomids on the water. Saw something huge jump 4 times in a row. Probably a carp. Not a bad outing for being right in the city. Was the only one fishing.

    I used to live a few blocks away and fished it quite a bit one spring. It should get better later in the month and into May (after they plant it some more). I'm sure the big fish you saw was a carp, the lake is full of them. That lake has a little bit of everything though, so you never know...

    Nice report Ryan. I am sure though that you weren't the only one fishing the lake. There are new Americans and old timers bait fishing the lake daily and sometimes overnight. In past spring time, I've hooked into carp trolling an olive bugger with type 4 full sink line from a belly boat. Keep doing it and you'll feel the power of the poor man's bonefish.

    I was the only one I saw fishing at any rate. I drove buy yestarday and saw about a dozen folks bank fishing off of the 99.

    Heard that they stocked Green Lake w/ Triploids yesterday. Went out this morning and got skunked. Saw one Russian with 2 small trout but that was about it. Seems that everyone is waiting for the truck to dump more fish into the lake.

    If you had 10 or 20 guys trolling in their toons, somebody will get something. If it bites thru your leader right after the take, you will have to gear up to steel leader and troll back over that spot. If everyone had a gps, you could coordinate takes until you zeroed in on your targets by species. Right in the middle of downtown. How cool is that.

    Don't get you hopes up too much. Green Lake will only get 750 trips this year.

    It would be cool to figure out tiger muskie and 750 is plenty. I'm just too cheap to waste the gas from Synnwood to Greenlake.

    FYI - The tiger musky program on Green Lake has been discontinued for several years now. There might be a few still cruising around, but they'll be dying of old age any time now.

    I fished Green Lake off the pier this week. I've had luck catching triploids and small plants with bloodworms and chromers believe it or not. Until I get to those geat destinations, this urban fishery is like practice putting at the golf range.

    nice! I just can't bring myself to go fishing there. It's only 2 minutes from the house but after growing up around here it just seems weird to me.

    Any time relaxing on the water is better than not relaxing at all :beer2:
