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.

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
