Thanks to all for the honest responses.I have fished lake mille lacs in Minnesota, Eagle lake in Ontario, and North and South trout lake in northern Wisconsin for these suspeneded creatures.I am kind of used to the "needle in a haystack approach" associated with the deep/big water muskies, and that's what I kinda like the challenge! Im guessing most of them after spawning leave the shallows and gravitate towards wherever the cisco hang out during summer,and do not return to the shallows until they feast on the spawning ciscos in late fall. Some of the other deep trout lakes I have fished the thermocline sets up at about30'-50' but those lakes bottomed out at 100'. I am interested to hear where the thermocline sets up over this 200' beast, and when does it normally happen? How deep have you guys seen the cisco go here? I love to see the baitfish above 40' with the big arc off to the side babysitting them! Are there large schools of ciscos? As you can tell I hunt more for the ciscos than the muskies. Ciscos=Muskies. Any advice on the cisco whereabouts would be greatly appreciated!

Bucky... You got a shot at a big one... But it's a long shot. I've seen a handful of 40-50 inch muskies in big green in the past 2 years but always in the early spring in the shallows before the season opens on them. Saw 2 last year swimming side by side presuming it was a male and a female because one was small (30-34) inches and the other was close to 4 ft long. I agree with the other posts powerball comment lol but I say good luck if you do go after them here

Bucky, I appreciate your hopes to catch a massive pig, but I think you're more likely to win the Power Ball than connect on such a fish in Green Lake.

I am looking to start musky fishing this body of water starting this spring. From what I have been reading there is not a huge population which is ok to me. With all the forage in this lake there has to be a couple of giants swimming around!!!! I love to chase muskies over deep open water that are feeding on the schools of baitfish, this is how I plan on fishing here. I am not looking for numbers of fish but rather a shot at that rare 40# or even 50# that is stuffed full of ciscos!!! Do you think that I am chasing something that does not exist in this body of water? Has anybody seen one or heard of one of this caliber in this lake? I am not looking for certain spots just want to know what you guys think. Thanks!

Looking to access the lake on the west side. Would Beyers Cove be an option to get on the main lake, or is there another option on the north west side?

Pike if you're not familiar with the lake I wouldn't even take an atv out there. I live on the lake and have fished it my whole life and won't take a truck out there. The lake makes strong ice but it varies all over, I'd strongly advise against driving out for your own safety. Talk to a bait shop or guide, they should be able to help you find someone familiar of the area to help get it out. Every year someone puts a truck in somewhere... Not worth the risk.
