Pine Island or Morris Point

Recommended Posts

jasongp99

I'm heading up Thursday morning still haven't decided where we are going to drop the house. Pine Island or Morris Point. Been checking posts and haven't heard alot about Morris Point as far as the bite and the road conditions. Last year it seemed to me that Adrians had a better plowed road and wide enough so it didn't fill as fast with the ever changing winds. So any info would be great. We are in a large two story looking house and was wondering how the crossing is over the island. She rides alittle low. Thanks fellas!!

I went out of Morris point on the 31 and 1. We got our limit and had all we could eat. The road was in great shape with one pressure ridge at the start but that was in better shape by the time we went home. We caught mostly eye's.The drive out onto the ice is less then a mile.

thors or others, How would you describe the snow out of Morris. I haven't been up since before the snow. I'm assuming I'll be able to find a spot to pull my pickup and my permanent of the road an adequate distance without too much hassle from the snow. Usually the biggest problem is right along the side of the road, but once past that you can drive out enough to drop your house. Basically, is it going to be a big hassle to get off the road a little ways?

I was out at Morris Point on 12/31 and 1/1. Getting off the road was no problem at all, however they got more snow after I left. The road was in good shape, a bank only on one side of the road, allowing for very easy access to get off the road on one side for sure. If I were to go back this weekend, I would not be concerned with getting far enough off the raod with my 6 x 16 house. What I have done in the past, is to unhook the house on the road and make a path with the truck, hook back up and go down the path. We caught our limit of walleye and sauger, 12 - 16 inches. Many smaller ones. We were in 28 fow, 1/4 mile off the road to the west. A total of 1.3 miles from shore. The crack by shore was much better on 1/1 and is no longer a concern.

Thanks for the informatin. I appreciate it. I've got a similar size house on wheels and I usually will do the same thing if it looks dicey. I always drive in a circle so that I'm pointed the right way towards the good track if the snow is deep. I might go up this weekend, next week, or next weekend. For some reason I feel compelled to watch my favorite football team likely lose to my least favorite team so I might hold off on going this weekend.

I agree that it will be a little harder to get around but they do plow all the snow to one side so you can get off on the other side.

My house is out of Morris in 28'. My S-10 Blazer made it through the pile from the plow, and over to the house (about 150 yrds) no problem on Saturday, before the second snow. Fishing was very good after about 8 am and stayed pretty steady until around 3:30. Good mix of eyes and saugers in the 13-16 inch range. Four of us stayed busy enough that the cards were never dealt. There appears to be a line of houses out from Morris darn near all the way over to Pine. I'm sure finding a spot will not be all that difficult. I will be up Saturday morning. You will see two blue houses to your right just off the plowed road about a mile out. My house is the silver one sitting all by itself a bit further past those two. I should have a road plowed over there if it's not already done. If you see a vehicle parked there feel free to swing by. Good luck.

Fiskyknut called me last night, he had been out in my house at Morris Wednesday and Thursday.He said Wednesday was a bit slow, but yesterday excellent. Three adults and a couple kids caught "a ton of fish". He said the size had improved with a few fish over 17". I asked if shiners or chubs made any difference, and he said they were about equal. Orange and pink/white seemed to be the most consistent colors. The dead sticks were just that, dead. Jigging produced almost all their fish. Good luck to all.

      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike
