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.

      As far as I'm aware, the two main spawning spots are the Pike River on the east end and Black Lake on the west end. That said I think that walleye are probably spawning in many different areas around the lake. IMO it's kind of fun to look for those hidden gem areas.

      Information about chronic wasting disease and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ management response to its discovery in two deer near Lanesboro will be the focus of a public meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., in Preston.  DNR staff will explain the disease and why a quick and aggressive response is the most effective way to limit its spread. They also will discuss response measures including establishment of a disease management zone, a special winter deer hunt, landowner shooting permits and the necessity to conduct an aerial deer population survey. Representatives from other state agencies and deer hunting groups also will be available to answer questions. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease to deer, elk and moose but is not known to affect human health. Prior to this discovery, the disease has only been found in Minnesota in one wild deer harvested near Pine Island in 2010. For more information, including maps of chronic wasting disease surveillance areas, common questions and answers and hunter information, visit the DNR’s CWD homepage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.
