Morris Point Report

2 posts in this topic

Just returned from Morris Point. We were using our own wheelhouse and did fairly well. Slow, but steady action. We kept a limit and ate them, then fished from 9-3 yesterday to get our limit to bring home. There was a good early bite yesterday, but we were a little hung over and slept in.

Started saturday at 7:30 in 20'....graphed lots of fished, picked up 2 nice 10:30 we went deep. Out o the end of the road in 34'. Switched from glow-red to glow green and started knocking them dead. Lots of snall ones....but lots of nice eaters too.

Had friends in their sleeper in 28' that caught nothing. They missed a few, and were fishing rattle reals playing cards.

Use your graph...the typical jigging spoon and dead stick 1/2 punch was working well.

Huge schools of shiners were seen suspened under our holes. Some "Cheeseheads" fishing next to us pulled up to 10' under the ice and caught 10 walleyes chasing the minnows.

I just got back from fishing out of Morris Point for the past day and a half. We were in 28 fow on Sunday and ended up catching about 25 fish between two people. The majority of the fish were around 8inches long.

Today, we tried 32 fow but only caught one sauger in 3 hours.For two people between one and a half days, we kept 2 walleye and 8 sauger.

It was sure cold outside, but we stayed warm with two heaters blazing in the portable.

      Ha!  Me too!  My father bought that last winter and was first voyage on ice. First ice on Leech was rough and those side by sides don't absorb all that well. . Still a good time.

      For holiday gift ideas, consider a locally made gift created from trees harvested in Minnesota. Wooden toys, handcrafts and keepsakes are a great green gift option. Wood is a renewable resource that is natural, nontoxic and eco-friendly.   “Wood products are great green gifts for both kids and adults,” said Kristen Bergstrand, DNR utilization and marketing program coordinator. “Uniquely hand-crafted and individually customized wooden gifts are a wonderful option for a person who has everything.” Wooden blocks, rocking chairs or horses, puzzles, rattles, picture frames and artisan bowls or wood crafts are unique items that are often passed down to future generations as family mementos. Thousands of items are made from wood harvested in Minnesota forests. About 30 percent of the state’s wood fiber comes from state forest lands. The Minnesota forest products industry brings $16.1 billion to local economies. The industry creates jobs and brings financial support to small and large manufacturing and retail businesses across the state. Making products from trees often requires less processing and energy than plastic or other products. Wood is also renewable and reusable. Most wood products can be recycled and wood waste can be converted into green energy as biomass. Well-managed forests grow back into a forest after harvesting. And buying wood products also helps the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes global climate change, and store carbon in their wood. Locally made products from trees harvested in Minnesota use less fossil fuel for transportation than imported goods.
