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!

Sounds like you had a great time! Thanks alot for the report, really appreciate it. Can't wait to get out there. We're gonna try and set up for pike one day too. Were there any groups pike fishing that you saw?

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.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.

      Wind was howling when we left the dock this morning and I was pretty shook up about it. A nice steady bite with decent fish made the day a real pleasure.   Good news going into the big weekend, the fish are biting.

      Is it the LaCroix Ranger Station where you pick up the permits now?

      not something I consider when eating as I don't eat fish weekly.  I feed them to my kids and my wife ate it while pregnant.  Not sure if there really is a concern or not but the basic guidelines are out there more for kids and pregnant women.  Unless you are eating fish daily or every other day then I don't think you need to worry a whole bunch.  Heck if you die because of mercury poisoning from eating too many fish, well at least you had one hell of a time before you died! HAHAHA   A few years back a local lake close to the metro started producing a lot of crappies and people drove all over to fish.  A lot of fish were taken and eaten.  The lake had been traditionally known as a dumping pond for farm runoff and other things like that...I ate a limit or 2 from said lake and never had issues with anything and the fish tasted like they should.  Point being that unless they say "DON'T EAT FISH FROM THIS LAKE" just follow the state guidelines for your kids and prego wife but other than that enjoy a meal or 2 a week if you are lucky to catch enough!!  Good Luck- Ozzie

      I think day use motor or camping requires a permit, not self service.
