Can't choose a lake for the morning! Me and my buddy need input. We've only fished NS Center and Green before but its been a while for both. Any suggestions for the area? Thanks.

Those 2 are good choices, but throw Chisago into the mix. Great action lake. Big variety of ways to fish - deep, slop, weedlines, reed banks.

Tough morning on green. Chose to frog fish and didn't do as well as we'd hope. Caught a few and missed a few. I can't figure our NS Center and I don't know why!

I think I will try Chisago next, haven't fished it yet!

Frog fishing on Chisago was pretty decent on Saturday 5:00am until 10am. All the fish seems pretty fat like they have been eating well recently. South end in the slop and around most of the big floating weed beds were pretty active. The three smaller bays were giving up fish but a little smaller in size than on the main lake. Did some cranks also in 10'-15'  off weed edges and the pike were all over them.

Green has some great weed beds - some of the nicest coontail and milfoil in the area plus more and more cabbage.  Weedline sets up around 11ft give or take.  Find an edge somewhere and follow it along with t-rigged plastic or jig.

 Haven't fished N. Center much since winter kill but fish are there. Expect alot of tiny northern. Always fish around the island and out from it. Generally, stay shallow, though there are some deep rocks always worth trying.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
