Pine Island or Morris Point

Recommended Posts

jasongp99

I'm heading up Thursday morning still haven't decided where we are going to drop the house. Pine Island or Morris Point. Been checking posts and haven't heard alot about Morris Point as far as the bite and the road conditions. Last year it seemed to me that Adrians had a better plowed road and wide enough so it didn't fill as fast with the ever changing winds. So any info would be great. We are in a large two story looking house and was wondering how the crossing is over the island. She rides alittle low. Thanks fellas!!

I went out of Morris point on the 31 and 1. We got our limit and had all we could eat. The road was in great shape with one pressure ridge at the start but that was in better shape by the time we went home. We caught mostly eye's.The drive out onto the ice is less then a mile.

thors or others, How would you describe the snow out of Morris. I haven't been up since before the snow. I'm assuming I'll be able to find a spot to pull my pickup and my permanent of the road an adequate distance without too much hassle from the snow. Usually the biggest problem is right along the side of the road, but once past that you can drive out enough to drop your house. Basically, is it going to be a big hassle to get off the road a little ways?

I was out at Morris Point on 12/31 and 1/1. Getting off the road was no problem at all, however they got more snow after I left. The road was in good shape, a bank only on one side of the road, allowing for very easy access to get off the road on one side for sure. If I were to go back this weekend, I would not be concerned with getting far enough off the raod with my 6 x 16 house. What I have done in the past, is to unhook the house on the road and make a path with the truck, hook back up and go down the path. We caught our limit of walleye and sauger, 12 - 16 inches. Many smaller ones. We were in 28 fow, 1/4 mile off the road to the west. A total of 1.3 miles from shore. The crack by shore was much better on 1/1 and is no longer a concern.

Thanks for the informatin. I appreciate it. I've got a similar size house on wheels and I usually will do the same thing if it looks dicey. I always drive in a circle so that I'm pointed the right way towards the good track if the snow is deep. I might go up this weekend, next week, or next weekend. For some reason I feel compelled to watch my favorite football team likely lose to my least favorite team so I might hold off on going this weekend.

I agree that it will be a little harder to get around but they do plow all the snow to one side so you can get off on the other side.

My house is out of Morris in 28'. My S-10 Blazer made it through the pile from the plow, and over to the house (about 150 yrds) no problem on Saturday, before the second snow. Fishing was very good after about 8 am and stayed pretty steady until around 3:30. Good mix of eyes and saugers in the 13-16 inch range. Four of us stayed busy enough that the cards were never dealt. There appears to be a line of houses out from Morris darn near all the way over to Pine. I'm sure finding a spot will not be all that difficult. I will be up Saturday morning. You will see two blue houses to your right just off the plowed road about a mile out. My house is the silver one sitting all by itself a bit further past those two. I should have a road plowed over there if it's not already done. If you see a vehicle parked there feel free to swing by. Good luck.

Fiskyknut called me last night, he had been out in my house at Morris Wednesday and Thursday.He said Wednesday was a bit slow, but yesterday excellent. Three adults and a couple kids caught "a ton of fish". He said the size had improved with a few fish over 17". I asked if shiners or chubs made any difference, and he said they were about equal. Orange and pink/white seemed to be the most consistent colors. The dead sticks were just that, dead. Jigging produced almost all their fish. Good luck to all.

      Tulibee? Last February on Frazer Bay

      Where else can you go and pull so many big walleyes? Just go in knowingly that you aren't going to keep anything. Sleeper option is better than portable . Limited action during the day anyway. Now sunset to sunrise can be game on all night long. We put back 14 over 22" last weekend. When I say we it was myself, wife and two kids under 7. This lake is a blast. Good Luck

      Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!

      Last year I grabbed my new license a few days early and hit a lake east of here.  Had my new license in my pocket.  2 people on the lake and I got checked by a young CO that walked out from the access. Nice guy. Showed it to him and he said this is for the new season. I had the old one on shore in the car and told him that. He said no problem and mentioned to carry it till the new season starts.  Checked my bucket and we visited a bit. Then he walked about 1/4 mile to the only other person I saw out to check him. So carry the current one  if you buy early.

      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.
