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.

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
