Morris Point?

7 posts in this topic

Heading up to the big lake 3/12-3/14. Usually we go two or three times a year but haven't been up there yet this winter. We have had good look at Morris Point for big pike in the past. Anyone have any reports on the roads going out there and the pike fishing at Morris or Zippel? Thanks.

What I meant was good luck at morris point. Maybe I should read what I type before I post it. Also, have the walleyes been biting at Morris? I'm sure they are at Zippel like always.

We were at Morris Point Sunday through Tuesday morning. They 'eyes and saugers are biting. We just followed the road to 30 ft. of water and dropped down. Always fun when you can just set up and catch fish. Brought home 27 between five of us, threw a bunch back and missed many more. The rattle reels were rolling by 6:45 each morning. Glow red, golds and greens. Rattlin' Varmits, Kastmasters and Gem-N-Eyes the most consistent. You should have a blast, good luck!

We didn't really see too many people at all. Mainly just one of their plows every so often. Pretty quiet as far as traffic was concerned.

One more question hip hop...where were you from the tip of the point? See I'm just trying to get a location, I've always fished for pike tight against the inside of the point and now since we're trying walleyes just wondering how far you were from the point. Thanks again.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
