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.

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

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
