Report from Morris Point and question about Angle


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I just found this site this year. I've been going to LOTW for about 6 years. 10 of us were at Morris Point Resort this past weekend. They do a nice job there. The fishing was the worst I've ever had at LOTW. Not their fault, just the year. Gold jigs and spring bobbers were the keys for us. Any Q"s? Just ask.

Can someone give me the details about snowmobiling out to the Angle? I'd like to try that. How does it compare to driving up?

Nollid: There is a snow mobile trail marked from Wheelers Point over Pine Island up to the Angle. If I remember the sign correctly it is 46 miles. Saw several sleds headed that way early this week while we were there. If you give Adrians Resort or Riverbend Resort a call they could probably give you more info. They mark the trail with black stakes all the way up. Bill

Nollid, heading there this sunday. Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated. Were at Ballards in a sleeper but have never been there so don't know what to expect. Been doing alot of reading on the site but can't get enough knowledge.

Thanks...Arjak

It's a whole lot more comfy riding in the pickup. Might take about the same amount of time, but I would recommend driving and unloading at the angle. Sounds like the sled ride this year could be a little tough on the gear.

A friend and I drove the truck up to the angle a couple weeks ago. Went across the border at Warroad "The border at Roseau doesnt open till 8:00 am and closes at midnight while Warroad is 24hrs". The drive up wasnt bad at all really and didnt seem to take that long. You get to the Angle and you have to stop at a Video telephone and call back into the states to let them know you are comming back in and the same with Canada when you leave the Angle it only takes five minutes including the PEE break !!!! I went to youngs bay and unloaded the sleds at Jerrys returant. Plenty of room to park and if you get there early enough have breakfast because its pretty good. Then we just headed out fishing from there. The bomber drivers I talked to said the sled trail from the south shore was pretty rough and we did the right thing by driving up. Besides if you want to make it up there early in the morning for the morning bite Driving across an area you arent familiar with in the dark could seem like a long sled ride I think. Just my two cents though,

yeh that trail is alot longer than it looks, especiually from springsteel. i have just cruised past that phone thing more than a few times and nothing was said. they probably just assume u have a remote border pass. it is good place for a pit-stop, just watch you or ur buddys r not on camera!

be careful drivin around, they have cameras everywhere around that border. once i turned around on the border quite a ways west of there near badger. they were there in minuts.

Do they still plow a road from Jake's to Kenora??? Several years ago we took it from Jake's to Monument Bay and up ot Outer Bay too.. Les Sandy said it went all the way to Kenora so they could access Warroad via the ANGLE.... Kaz confused.gif

Kaz, that road is usally in from Kenora to the angle by early January. This year, it may have just gotten in, or not at all. It takes about an hour to get from Kenora to Young's Bay. Nice ride.

TNX Hemlock. I suppose with the strange ice conditions this year, it may not get plowed. Yes, it was a very nice trip. I only made it almost to Big Narrows area and then turned back. It was a great way to get north without goin all the way around though.... Kaz

We took the snowmobile trial from Warroad to the Anlge last weekend and the trail was in good shape. It was not very cold so it made for a nice ride.

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....

      Fished a bigger lake, fish or at least the eaters are on the mid lake humps. Water Temps 68 degrees, freezer now has 6 total as I've been eating fish often. Tomorrow we chase the 30" walleye for catch and release.
