Morels

9 posts in this topic

I know this is on the hunting forum, but just curious if anyone else is finding them in this area. I went out yesterday and knabbed about 30 or 40 in one spot, seems like they are just getting going around here, they did taste good though with the fresh walleye that I brought back from Iowa, just wanting to see if anyone else is finding any yet, mixture of grey and yellow, which i thought was strange, normally the greys come first but this year it seemed as if it were 50/50

I found some on sat. pm, about 1/3 a grocery bag. alot were real small and left alot behind to get bigger. then i hear that they will dry up if you let them grow too long. how long is too long?

Oh they were good, can't quite say that there as good as a true mn eye, but definately good, especially with the morels, I will say though that getting out the week before has taken a little of the enthusiasm out for the upcoming weekend, even though I only caught a couple, I'm still kicking myself for not hitting that windy shoreline harder and pitching the jigs to them, instead of drifting in the morning, I know they were in there should have spent a little more time on them, oh well that's reserved for next year,

As far as the Morels go, I wouldn't wait to long, sometimes the greys only get an inch or two, the yellows will get bigger, but if i see a grey i usually grab it that day, ive seen greys and yellows that were all dried out or the bugs got to them before i did, so even though it's nice to have them get a little bigger, it doesnt take much for them to go bad either. This rain should really help out.

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
