Jason usually has their setup out from Morris point. Speaking with Morris point this morning they are letting vrhicles on the ice and they have 16 inches where their road is. Fishing has been good for me anyhow out this way. Lots of small fish as is par for this time of year and this area. Some big ones to be had as well, I've seen a couple of 10+'s and heard of a few more taken so far on the ice.

Jason is a good guy and will take care of you well, and his huts are huge, a guy could spend the whole winter in one!

Good luck....fiskyknut

Hey Feskyknut,

Will we be able to pick up some perch around there you think? It will be the only fish a person gets to eat with that slot size. And by the way you can warm it up a little were not used to it being that cold.

Thanks,

Iowawally

You might get a Perch or 3, I've seen a few in the cleaning house at Morris come in, big ones too. Theres definetly better Perchin on other areas of the lake. You will catch plenty of Walleye which you can eat, the slot is no fish between 19.5 and 28 inches, you should catch plenty of 'eaters' under that 19.5 mark. Lot's of Saugers to be caught as well. You may also get a Burbot which you could certainly eat! As for the weather, it's even making me go Brrrrr, and it's gonna be even colder! Your fish house will be plenty warm though. Hopefully you'll bring a little bit milder weather from down south there!!!

Good luck and have fun, you should catch plenty of fish.

Regards....fiskyknut

Burbot are a winter favorite of mine. Take out their backstrap and poach it in half water half 7up and dredge thru seasoned butter, I really enjoy them anyhow.

12 hours that is a haul, drive careful. Don't forget your jackets and longjons!

      I'm wondering the same thing!  Low temps have been dropping below freezing and in shallow water that temp has to drop multiple degrees in a night.  I'm wondering if they went back to the breaks and are waiting again?

      Public water is the Surface of the Water, not the land beneath it.  So even if you can access the river through an easement the actual land that youre standing on could be private property. Everything on the DNR Website says "Surface of Water" in the trespassing section.  I agree this is unfortunate,  but as usual, the 3 drunk morons that don't care ruin it for the 1000 that do..... standard procedure these days.  1 idiot doesn't clean his boat, and wrecks a lake for thousands of people.
