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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
