Morris Point Pike?

Recommended Posts

MG - Fishin'

I'll be coming up next weekend 3/11-3/14/04 and bringing Dad up for his 2nd trip to the pond. After I brought him up after X-Mas for his first time, now he's hooked. This is exactly what I had planned since he's one of my primary fishing buddies and loves to catch walleyes and pike as much as we all do. We'll be fishing out of Ballard's houses on Friday and Saturday, but we wanted to head out and try for some pike on Sunday morning for a bit before we head back to the cities. I would love to head west towards Warroad or Springsteel, but since we'll be in Baudette for the weekend we should probabaly stick around there and fish before the long drive home. I heard that Morris Point area is decent for pike late in the year, but can anyone help me out a little more on where to start targeting them. Should we stick closer to shore and fish really shallow or head out a little deeper and fish a few feet under the ice? Or should we try a different area? I'm yet to ice a nice jack up there and would love for either me or him to pull a few up the hole. Any info will be greatly appreciated. One week and counting 'til we go. Can't wait!<BR>Thanks everyone!

MG: I was at LOW last week out of Riverbend and Glenn mentioned that Border View had moved several of there houses into the mouth of the river near Wheelers Point with the intent of catching gators. When we came off the lake on Saturday there were several guys in that area fishing tip ups. You might give Border View and call and see what they can tell you about that area and there houses. It would keep you in the area that you will be fishing wallies and saugs, without having to head west. The resort locater above will give you their phone number. If the weather stays like this you could probably fish outside withoout the house too. Just a thought, hope you get into a big one. Good luck, and hang on. Bill

      Good Morning everyone, The family and myself will be in Mankato July 27-29 for the MSF baseball tournament(U11).  It appears we may have down time Sat. Was wondering if  anyone could point me in the right direction to a shorefishing area I could take the family?   First time to Mankato, so no real idea where to look. Thank you.

      I hadn't hit the river in >1 month, but last night went Fishing below the SCSU dam in St. Cloud last evening and the river conditions are really quite good for July.  Water height is at a good level and the past week of dryness has improved water clarity. (...that may change today with possible rain all day in forecast) Probably the hottest bite I've ever had in the river--Pretty much everything was biting on nightcrawlers!  (there were 10 different species pulled out in <2 hours!)  Fun Evening!

      I assume you mean the 110 size one.  I have all three, the 90, 110, and 130 in different colors.  I have never had great luck using them however.  They are a well made lure and they have good plopping action, I just can't get very many bites on them.

      It came down pretty quick the past couple days after they got like 8 inches of rain at the headwaters last week.

      I purchased The newer smaller size Whopper Plopper, what a kool surface plug.  I can give it to most any client fishing and they can catch great fish. I had  a family of four on a guide trip, (Dad, Mom,  son10 and daughter 6 yrs old.) What a blast, was going to be dad and the kids, I told mom to come with to enjoy time . We spent an hour plus catching many sunfish and rockbass, the kids having a great time cranking fish from 16 feet of water.  I said "Lets look for bigger fish."  A quick bit of instruction with mom on how to set the hook, She began catching Bass after Bass, (I had only used the lure myself once for 10 minutes and caught 3 bass.) The Mrs, caught her personal best bass, of 19 inches.  Going out to get several more, for as sure as Gods make apples and bees, I know this bait sooner or later going trigger either a large pike or musky if on the of those lakes.  They may cost a bit more, but I my conservative approach to buying lures.  Money well spent.  I got the loon.
