Just got back from there last night. Fished Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

Lots of fish where we were but mostly small ones. We were in about 30' I think that if I was to go back today, i would focus on a little shallower. Just a guess.

Anybody else think that the world was coming to an end out on Morris Monday? Two different times the ice let loose and really rocked the world. The first time, you could actually feel the house shift side to side. Now the is a growing pressure ridge along the road.

We are all bringing up portables so we can jump around and find the "hot spot". We'll be running around in the trucks and on the snowmobiles. Just picked up the 2008 lakemaster chip for up there today so now its time to do some scouting.

Just got home from the big lake and didn't do too bad. BUT, as before, didn't catch our limit. I did happen to be the guy who caught the biggest and the most fish. Funny how that works........I even slept for 5 hours today!!

Just got back from Morris, fished mostly 27-28 fow and did ok.

Biggest was 22" and kept fish between 13 and 19. Lots of small sauger and small eyes. Two of us where getting about 20+ fish a day jigging hard and 1 dead stick.

Saw some nicer fish come out of 33 fow water in the fish cleaning shack but we did better than most. It was real streaky if thats a word? wham wham then nothing for a while. high preasure moved in on friday and slowed it up a bit.

We still had fish to eat and bring home and had a great time.

Everyone at Morris point worked hard to put us on fish, new holes new water and new locations that was nice. This was my third year up there and that's what keeps us coming back. Besides being the good people they are. This is the only trip I do all year that's not sleds and protables or trucks and portables. so it's nice to have someone staying on the fish for us. All this will change in a couple of weeks with all the girls heading for shore sure hope I can make it back.

      Update: APR 27, 2017 — We requested a meeting with school administration to see HOW we could make this work - how we could break down barriers and open pathways. Sadly, we were declined. We are moving forward and will be presenting our petition signatures, research and plan to the school board on May 8th. Please help us get to 500 Plus!!  signatures! Thank you!! JKJKODA

      The Department of Natural Resources celebrates Arbor Day on Friday, April 28, and Arbor Month in May by recognizing the health benefits of trees in Minnesota.  Trees and forests provide numerous health benefits such as: Helping reduce skin cancer. Decreasing mental stress and promoting healing. Cleaning the air and reducing childhood asthma rates. Reducing stressful noises by 50 percent. Providing healthy fruits and nuts. “Getting your daily dose of trees is good for your health and easy to do,” said Jennifer Teegarden, DNR forestry outreach specialist. “You can climb a tree, go camping, sit under a tree, take a hike or visit a forest.” To encourage people to get a daily dose of trees, the DNR is launching the #31DaysOfTrees challenge during Arbor Month. Simply post a photo or video while getting a daily dose of trees on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Use the hashtag #31DaysOfTrees and include @MinnesotaDNR when posting to Facebook. Participation will be tracked using hashtag #31DaysOfTrees. Participants may win one of five state parks permits and have 10 trees planted in their honor in a Minnesota state forest. The more times a person posts enjoying their daily dose of trees, the more chances they’ll have to win. Participants must be 18 years or older and a Minnesota resident to win a prize. Visit the DNR’s Arbor Month webpage to watch videos of Minnesotan’s getting their daily dose of trees and how trees improve health. Additional details on the #31DaysOfTrees challenge and a listing of local Arbor Day celebrations can also be found on the Arbor Month webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources invites anyone with an interest in recreational trail systems and motorized recreation in the Beltrami Island State Forest in Beltrami, Lake of the Woods and Roseau counties to attend a public meeting on Wednesday, June 28, to review a set of proposals that include changes to trail systems in the state forest. The meeting will be from 6 to 8 p.m. at the DNR Forestry Office, 804 Cherne Drive NW, Warroad, with a presentation at 6:30 followed by time for questions and answers, map review and comments. Draft recommendations aim to improve trail sustainability and to enhance recreation opportunities. Proposed changes include adding new trails and trail connections, designating new hunter-walking trails and undesignating unsustainable minimum maintenance roads. The draft proposals reflect feedback gathered during an open house in June 2016. The forest is classified as “managed” with respect to motor vehicle use, which means that forest roads and routes are open to motor vehicles unless posted closed. The DNR does not propose changing the “managed” classification. Anyone unable to attend the June 28 meeting can review the project documents online on the trail revision project page and submit written comments through Friday, July 28. Comments received at the meeting and during the public comment period will be used to develop a final recommendation that will be submitted to the DNR commissioner for approval. Changes to state forest trail designations must be made by commissioner’s order and published in the State Register. Written comments may be submitted by fax to 651-297-1157, by email to foresttrailplanning.dnr@state.mn.us, or by mail to Joe Unger, Parks and Trails Division, Minnesota DNR, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN  55155-4039. For more information, call 651-259-5279 or 218-308-2372. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
