Morris Point or Adrian's

6 posts in this topic

I plan to come up for the day on Friday. Which would be better, Morris Point or over Pine Island on Adrian's road or is it a horse apiece? I plan to get up there by daybreak. What shallow depths (18-20) to try early and late and what depth for mid-day (27-30)?

We were up last friday and saturday. Tried 17ft friday morning for 2 hours and nothing. Went out to 30ft just east of the snowmobile trail and had good luck. Fished the same spot both days till dark and fish were bitting off and on the whole time. Nice limit of walleyes and sauger for everyone and lots to put back also. Nothing big but lots of fun. I know the shallower 13 to 18ft water put out alot of big fish last weekend during the evening. Saw 3 guys at Adrains sat. night and they each nailed a 10 pounder from 13ft. of water.

This time of year for the early late bite I'd be thinking 14 fow and less myself.

DJH,

I'm going to show my ignorance of the lake but where is the snowmobile trail? Does it cross Pine Island and then head north?

yes the sled trail crosses Pine to the east side of the island. It comes up the river and then over the island. It is signed and indicates NW Angle trail. They are black stakes. If you come off of Wheelers Point you will need to slide to your right and pick it up as it enter 4 mile bay from the river. Bill

Well said bturk! Just remember no trucks are allowed on the trail if its still staked.

      Agreed, 25 does seem big for a 12' boat

      Make sure you take a couple minutes and look for the rating plate in that boat, if it exists it should be back on or near the transom somewhere. I'd be very careful about hanging a 25 HP motor on a 12 foot boat, as it may not be rated for 25 HP. Some 12's are different than others, more depth, more beam, etc. so the motor ratings can vary. Proceed with caution.

      25 hp will be plenty for 12 foot boat with any amount of weight added.  I have no pics, sorry.  As stated really easy to do, your buddy should get er done in under three hours.  Don't spend a lot of money on the boat seats, I bought the cheap ones then added a outdoor chair pad for comfort.

      I was out there on opener as well and caught a lot of small fish. Averaged about 30 walleyes a day but nothing bigger than 17". Last weekend the bite was a lot tougher which I would assume was due to the weather.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.
