Any Morson Reports?

12 posts in this topic

Does anyone fish the Morson area any longer? Any recent report on how the fishing has been would be appreciated. Thanks.

We have been up the past few weekends.  Walleye bite is very good - crappies, not so much.  Have focused on Walleyes but from the way it sounds the typical Crappie spots are not producing right now.  The Elbow doesn't seem to have many Crappies in there at all right now.  We were in there three weeks ago and did well but boats coming out of their in the past few weeks have had few, if any, Crappies.  Some boats have reported a half dozen or so and others zero fish.  Walleyes are in the typical Fall areas - current, deep holes, necked down areas.

On Monday I found 8 inches on average only went as far as fish narrows. Not a lot of snow I didn't get a chance to fish. We got more snow in Roseau  on Wednesday so there maybe more snow on the lake. Plan on heading up to morson again Friday  will give another report . Next week plan on being at morson all week  fishing.

Talked to a buddy who was out past rabbit point last week and he said about the same as huntercj.  Depending on the storm I'm going up Monday or Tuesday for a few days.

I have Been fishing out of morson the last couple days. Walleye fishing has been good. Definitely some rough ice in spots makes for slow going. I had lots of equipment problems. I didn't get to try as many spots as I wanted to. Looked for some crappies no luck.

We were up over the weekend, fished Friday to Sunday night with 4 guys between two houses. REALLY good fishing, my house averaged 11 walleyes/saugers per hour and the other two guys averaged 13/hour, totaling just under 500 fish for the 2.5 days between the two houses. Minnows under bobbers worked best but fish were hitting spoons too. Gold spoons worked best, red/pink jig under the bobber was best.  Found 15-17" of ice, decent amount of snow, sleds worked good. Snow was falling when we left Monday morning so not sure how much more was added since then. Good luck!

Fished Thursday Friday Saturday. Walleye action had its moments but it was tough to find a consistent bite.  Best depth for walleye was around 20' with frozen shiners and fatheads, jigging raps and spoons.   Its just flat out difficult to move around and search out the active biters when its that cold out. Crappies bit ok but we really had to work for them. Zero slush west of Morson. A few very small pockets between Morson and Nestor. We had a great group of guys that were able to tough it out in spite of the frigid temperatures!

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
