seen a few truck out there yesterday, hows the accesses, would it be best to walk out now or is there still a decent way on to the glenwood side with a truck? I went on the beach about 4 days ago and it looked like it was about shot. But maybe it healed with the cool overnight temps? confused.gif

I went out from the beach Saturday with my pickup. I wouldn’t try it again. The first 30 ft was not good. After that the ice was fine. Maybe the strong NW wind today will push the good ice to shore. wink.gif Are there other areas on the Glenwood side that people drive on?

Definelitly 4 wheeler or walk from here on. Not bad conditions to pull a sled by hand if not going real far. Good crappie bite from 6:30-8 pm.

Are you catching any size to the crappies? Was out there a couple weekends ago, and we caught mostly sunfish (a few over 1/2) and only 5 crappies. What bothered me was they were no bigger than the lakes around here. I remember catching some nice (12"+) fish there, but these were barely 10. Thanks for replies.

Most were 8-10 in., some 10-11, You could sort to a 10-11 inch average. I throw the big ones back as well as the smaller. The mid size are easy enough to clean for me and I don't need that many.

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.

      Thanks All.   No big plans this weekend and and the weather has been putting a damper on outdoor projects and choirs.    Still I might sneak out for a few hours this weekend.

      In and around narrows is where most people were fishing.  Lots of fish under 14 though.

      I guess I will have to call the dnr about the couple spots I am in question of. Ones a darn and you can easily pick them off all day almost year round

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.
