I don't have first hand experience but I know a couple people who have tried the crappie bite on the Glenwood bar and for them it was poor. Of course others may be doing better. Today a few people were driving light vehicles, I expect more after this cold snap. Walleye for me have been good. 16 ft very few weeds. Most from jigging.

so where you fish is very little weeds.. are you right out side the weed line in 16 feet? you on the gleenwood or starbuck side? i like the preist point area although i have only been out there a couple times.. i just moved to Morris in September. How often you get out there?

Guys, got a quick question for ya. I just would like to know about how many fishhouses are out there now? I mean how crowded is it, or how crowded does it get during the winter?

I have fished it during open water, I don't need any spots, just don't want to pull the house out there if it is always packed.

Thanks

If I had to guess I'd say there can be around 400 houses out there at once, but on a lake that size it' like putting 20 on a small lake? I don't think it's crowed. I guess I don't fish in the middle of a big pack of houses either.

I would say that there is about 100-150 house out there right now and like the last guy said for a lake that size thats not the many houses. there is plenty of untouched ice out tthere if yoyu are looking to get out on a spot by yourself

Are these permanent houses? What size are they? The reason I ask is because I am thinking about taking out my perm. I have a 6.5 x 14, weighs 3,000 lbs. Thanks

There are permanent houses out there now of nearly all sizes (not to mention cars and pick-up trucks out there as well).

Full size trucks on the ice today and about any size house you can imagine. I would not want to guess how many houses are out there but I think 150 would be really conservative.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true
