Morris Point

4 posts in this topic

I've fished LOW and the river for several years but have never fished the Morris Point Gap. We've fished up and down the river, the bay and the lighthouse gap, but not Morris Point.

Can someone please tell me the best way to access the Morris Point Gap? Can I boat across the bay to Morris Point or do I need to enter the lake through the lighthouse gap and then over to Morris Point? If I cant access MP through the bay? Is there a closer launch (other then the public launch next to Borderview)?

Thanks for the help!

Balday: I wouildn't cross four mile bay to get to Morris Point. There are lots of hidden rocks just below the surface. I know some of the locals do it, but unless you know the path thru it, don't chance it. As for a closer launch, Morris Poing Resort has a "pay per time" ramp, sheltered with no current. It is in Bostic Creek and several of the resorts there use the creek to access the Lake. You can also go thru the Gap and run down the front of Pine Island. If it's windy and the lake is rough, that can be an exciting ride. If you have a smaller boat, Morris Point Resort and Bostic is the way to go... Hope theis helps... smile.gif Kaz

Thank you. That is exactly the type of information that I'm looking for.

Also take heed of the dead heads, we saw several marked floaters, and several unmarked floaters. There are also a couple poles just above the water, right in the main boat path from the river to the gap. take your time the first time out, and stick to the same route each time after. Saw SEVERAL boats make unexpected stops and check their hulls and motors...

      there is a mess being created out there ladies and gentleman. Be careful. Slush is sneaky. It looks like March out on the ice, not January. Deep slush and standing water, tricky conditions for vehicles and people. Saw a lot of flooded houses today in four mile bay.    Fishing for our group was the same as it's been all season. So Slow It Hurts.   But it sure was fun to be able to fish outside.    On a side note, I picked up nearly a dozen boards left behind from wheelhouses. With all this water and slushy conditions, I agree boards are needed. Just please take them with you or chisel them out. These things can cause a lot of damage to some expensive equipment come open water....

      I feel like every time I ice fish in the rain the fish are going nuts...Went out today on a lake in the Duluth area and just pounded the crappies and gills(100+fish)..All the gills were 8-9" and the crappies were 10-12"... Best bait was a glow majum jig with a glow plastic...
