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.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?
