Who Has Trips Planned to Morson This Summer??

Recommended Posts

eyeballs

I know a few Eastwind and a few others will be there , but I'm just curious to see how many other people will be up there and when, and what they plan to fish for? Also curious to see what everyone is fishing for. Myself, I'll be fishing shallow crappies, and a few walleyes in June and a few walleyes. Then in July Muskies, Smallies, and Crappies. I hit it one more time in October for walleyes and crappies. What's everyone else doing this season?

I'll be up there Saturday morning (May 29) through Saturday (June 5). I'll be fishing out of Hansons Bay. Plan to concentrate on wallys, but also spending some time for crappies, smallies and northerns.<P>Usually get up there 4 - 5 times a year for open water. I should get up there again in July, August and October (wallys and blue bills).<P>- Good fishing

Every other weekend starting tomorrow until freez-up. Then probably once a month throughout the winter. Usually fish for whatever wants to bite the end of my line.<BR>Usually fish west of morson and north to Miles bay. Muskies east sometimes and bottle bass on the deck.

Obabokin, Miles, and West towards Little Traverse- we cover a lot of ground.<BR>I'm curious- where are you chasing crappies in July up there?<BR>This year we'll be camping on an island for four nights- yeeehhaaa!!!!<P>------------------<BR>Scoot<P>RodsbyEngel: custom made fishing rods

Scoot,<BR>Locals have been planting beds there for years. That's mainly what I fish. When you fish there in the fall you may have snagged a few of them. Give it a try. Another thing is to fish deep docks in high percentage areas. Works for me, but I still have hit and miss days in the spring. Spawning crappies are the hardest thing for me to find every year.

I am heading up Saturday morning, the 29th. Will be fishing out of Red Wing Resort for whatever bites. Have had good luck in the past with walleye, northern, and smallies.

Eastwind

Just got back today from Morson. Great weather, fishing just okay. Caught most of the Eyes in 25' to 30' of water. Going up again in July for a week, in August for four days and in October for four days. <P>Hey RCKWLL! Fished off the island that the resort you stay at is on this weekend. When in August will you be up? I will be there the 12th thru 16th.

I will be heading up in August for the first time ever this year. My email is<BR><[email protected]>. Let me know if you have any pointers for August for me. I will fill you in on where we did well last October.

Just got back from Morson yesterday. I've been there about twenty times the last 6 years. We caught 60 walleyes in two days fishing (3 guys). Morning wasn't good but from 5-9pm was actually good. Caught the majority of the fish in 20-23' very few in the normal 12-15 range. Many 12-13 inchers, other guys did worse than us but the one thing everyone agreed on was the afternoon-evening bite being far better than morning. Water temp was below 55 degrees everywhere we were. Fished Rabbit Island alot in the wind. Our regular spots weren't too productive so we dragged spinners til we found fish and then just hung in those spots. If we didn't find those two spots we wouldn't have done too well.

Six of us are looking forward to our first houseboat trip the week of 6/27. We'll be leaving out of Morson/Hanson Bay, I believe.<P>We'll be going after smallies and eyes mostly with some time spent on muskies.<P>That time of year should we focus more in the Raspberry Island and Miles Bay areas or head more east into Sabaskong?<P>Also, just to get an idea of how big the lake is, how long would it take to go from Hanson Bay to Garden Island which is in the heart of Miles Bay? Let's say you have a 70hp.<P>Thanks for all info.<P>DB

Doonbuggy, You'll have enough time to try Sabaskong, Miles Bay and a couple other areas. You can make it from Hanson Bay to Garden Island in about 20 minutes or so if you know the route. Watch for rocks, they're everywhere.

Doonbuggy, I assume you've never been there. It's a maze of Islands. I've been there many times and if I get off of one of my main routes I can get turn around easily, especially if rough waters make keeping your bearings hard. I'd pick an area and work it. Make the Lake into a small lake. I would say if you have any adventorous spirit Raspberry is way to close to Hanson Bay for you guys. It's only about a three minute boat ride a way from Hanson Bay (going lets say 40mph). You can catch smallies pitching jigs into almost every island you'll see. You'll pick up walleyes accidently and maybe more. It's beutiful country and have fun.

I have a cabin on LOTW in the Morson area and have made 15-20 trips a year for the last 5 years. In June I chase Muskies, Walleyes and Smallies. In July, Muskies, Walleyes Smallies and Lakers. In August and September it's mainly Lakers. Towards the end of September the Crappies really start to go. October til freeze-up is my favorite time of the year. Huge Muskies, Big Walleyes and Northerns, schooling Slab Crappies and the Heavy Weight Champ of all fish species that swim in the LOTW system.....Sturgeon on the Rainy.<BR> P.S. Theres some talk about fishing the Canadian side of LOTW on the CANADA Forum of this website.<BR> Good Fish'in, Wizard

Doonbuggy,<BR>If your going through Morson Houseboat rentals Big Browns), they will be more than happy to get you to where you need to go. If it is the outfit across the bay they will more than likely do the same, I'm just not sure. I think the way they look at it is , they would rather show you how to get there rather than have you hit something. I should be up there about then. We may run across each other.

Just got back tonight from Morson. Alot of wind and miscellaneous rain made fishing tough. Caught a few Walleyes and Saugers near and in Miles Bay but overall, we've had much better trips. Hope to get back soon, it's such a great area!<P>jig-em

Planning trip June 26th -July 1st. What should I look for for muskies at this time of the year, will they have recovered from spawning yet and possibly be on the bite? What is water temp like and will smaller baits work better. What do these LOTW muskies like. <P>Thank you in advance<P>Damon from Middle MN<P>------------------<BR>

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down  
    • pikeandchester
      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff

      If  my memory serves me correctly , yes you can . I believe that we were able to safely walk a 16ft boat through the short stretch of current . When we did this it was warm part of summer and we were in shorts and just had a pair of tennis shoes on when we walked the boat up stream which was about a 30 yard or so pull .Now if you would attempt this during colder weather like now , I’m sure a pair of knee length rubber boots would be sufficient . Very beautiful clear water with awesome scenery . Walleye , Smallmouth , and Lakers .

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!
