Morson area resorts

8 posts in this topic

Anyone have any recommendations for resorts in the Morson area? I have never fished LOW and would like to do a quick get-away trip somewhere. Probably be me, my dog, and one other person. Bringing my own boat, food, etc.

Your two best choices would be Mylie's and Buena Vista. I prefer Mylie's but there are as many people that prefer Buena Vista as there are people that prefer Mylie's.

Go to www.morson.org and click on members for many resorts in the Morson area.

You have your choice of drive-to or boat-in, more than a dozen places.

Thdre's also a decent campground near Bergland, former provincial park now run by the first nations.

I like Buena Vista and Mylies - both on land/shore. They're nothing spectacular, but both are nice and will take care of you. Duck Bay is also a good choice and I think the Obabikon Bay Resort would be fun to stay at (no experience with them, but have the original owners back, which is good).

Thanks for the quick replies guys. Now, having never been there, am I going to get into some easy learning curve fishing? The reason I was looking here was that it looks like it is more protected from high winds than the American side, plus it isn't really all that far away. The resorts seem to be pretty reasonable as well.

Wild Thing, about that campsite, is it "safe" to stay there? Will I run into any issues of theft, etc?

I'd stay at the resorts above because your protected to from wind a whole lot more. IF the wind is 10-20 out of the west in that bay the park is in . . . well, that's LOTW at it's finest.

If you're fishing in the next few weeks, I'd say the curve is small. For trolling bouncers on the reefs: medium - medium heavy baitcast rod and reel (ideally with "flippin" switch), I like Power Pro line, 1-1.5-2.0 oz bouncers, gold-silver-chartruese spinners, see above for bait. Bring a spinning rod for jigs and one medium baitcast rod for trolling cranks.

Have the resort highlight some reefs and enjoy!

Shorelunch is right, if you stay at the north end of Morson (at the end of Hwy. 621) or on an island you'll be much more likely to get out at any time....

Ohhh, I leave in 3 hours! I'm already landing the first fish!

    • Helps when I comprehend what I read.  I actually just cut the handle off my tongue jack on my Yetti and welded on 3/4 nut too.  My M18 drill with 1,200 in-lbs (2704-20) and it has no problem raising or lowering the tongue.  Biggest thing I noticed was making sure my drill was on the #1 low speed setting.      As far as torque goes and harming your auger.  I think you are totally fine and shouldn't harm anything.  The max amount that these K-Drills and Clam plates are drilling these days with the big drills are 8".  Most sized augers these days have no problem turning a 10" auger which is nearly twice as large of an area than an 8" auger.  Being 2 strokes can normally operate in any orientation without being damaged the only concern I would have would be your gears and any shifting of grease inside operating the auger head on its side under load.    They say Ions will do 10" holes but after I talked to their customer service reps about it, I wouldn't trust an Ion with a 10" more than I do a wet fart.  Just the fact that they don't even sell a 10" package indicates there could possibly be issues with torque and reliability when operating the 10" auger "accessory".  For now I'd just stick to your strike master going up and save your Ion any extra wear and tear.  Maybe even ask Santa for some electric jacks this Christmas
    • As the media begins to draw a pretty picture about the November jobs report, namely that unemployment has dropped to 4.6 percent, its lowest level in nine years, they are unlikely to tell you the other part of the story. The labor force participation rate continues to decline and is stuck at a rate we haven't seen since February 1978, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  It gets worse. Last month, we lost 4,000 manufacturing jobs, offering more damage to the already 301,000 we've lost since President Obama took office. - Town Hall   See for yourself.. U.S. Dept of Labor / BLS Date Viewer   Whaaa ???   OH, MY....  
    • I wouldn't do that for each one. I was wondering if you couldn't cut a winch down, or maybe just leave it as is, so you could attach a drill to the low speed post and tack weld/rig a socket or something for the other side and just hold it in your hand. It probably won't work because it sounds too easy. 
    • My, such big words!! Yer a talented liddle Smurf, aintcha? We might as well get to work doin' what we were accused of, munchkin!!! Like Carly Simon said, "no one does it better"....  
    • i,ve been falsey accused of inproprieties!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Ken W, I have that book too. Before the internet it was really tough to find info. about sausage making. I never had luck getting a tangy flavor using Fermento. The sausage was very good though.
    • Jacks work very smooth, fresh grease and by hand feels fine for the amount of weight.  I think for the winter we'll just use the gas auger up and the hand drill down.  I don't want to sink another penny into these darn jacks if I can help it, should be swapping out by next year.  I may look into the gear reduction but I feel like trying to throw one of them on each of the jacks could add another 100 that could go toward electric.  leech if you ever stumble on that video post the link so I can see what hes doing different.  Works great on the tongue when it can pivot on the wheels but when lifting the full weight of the house at the back two jack points it just doesnt cut it.
    • I wondered about that when you were building the house. I think you will have to go electric jacks unless you can figure a gear reduction box of some kind. That might be easier than it sounds with some thinking (I hope). Could you mickey mouse the guts of a 2 speed winch? That's a simple gear reduction. Leech, that would have to be a gear reduction box of some kind, right?
