Morris Point

Recommended Posts

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!

DB

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.

Leaving this Thursday for our annual trip and I can hardly wait.

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...

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
