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!

    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
    • tip to a couple good friends   Len,
      Thank you for the stream recommendation, Len! I love the layout of this stream. Fished it from 3pm until 6:30pm.  My brother threw panther 9s and I threw 6s. We scored a brookie/brown/bow trifecta.    
    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
    •   Well not as many as up by the Emily-Outing area but a few.
    • Still on the fence between going with the cabin or lodge, my dad has a normal lodge and it has tons of room which is great but it also is somewhat heavy for 1 guy to load and pull it seems. I mostly fish with just 1 other person and maby 25% of the time by myself so that was why I was leaning to the cabin which also seemed to have plenty of room for 2 it seemed to me. Also from what I understand the cabin will fit in chevy crew cab box and the lodge won't? I have a 04 crew cab short box so one more incentive for the cabin if thats true.
    • Sounds perfect, thinking your guys reviews will seal the deal for me once I can see one in person again, a hyfax kit will also be on my list as I plan on pulling it behind my sportsman 570. Thanks for the review also AAmerican, it's early to be thinking ice fishing but I'm sure there's people out there like us that are a little anxious!
    • The Chippewa flowage would be a great place to start. I will be honest. Walleye are not what I have ever chosen to Target when I fish up there but the flowage is a great fishery.    Nelson lake would be another choice.
    • I have had 3 of the otter pro xt's, a cabin, lodge and resort. I still have the resort and recently purchased the cabin. I have not had many different brand portables but have fished in other brands buddies have. They are the nicest portables I have personally owned and until I try something I like more I wouldn't change from them at all. The resort is heavy and not something I like dragging far by hand especially loaded with gear and much snow on the lakes. But it has tons of room and I have fished 4 people in it before, a little tight but doable. The cabin I purchased for more hand pulling and an extra for if I have people along. They are very warm and I have fished in them down to -30 deg F. A regular buddy heater keeps them plenty warm, if it isn't to cold or the house is banked well its easily t-shirt weather inside. The resort needs a big buddy heater for colder days sometimes due to the larger size but isn't terrible with a regular. Overall very happy with them all and have been very durable. Also no dripping of water from the ceiling. Highly recommend a set of hyfax for the bottom. I had over 1000 miles pulling my old lodge and they hyfax held up great but I always pulled on snow and not across asphalt much at all.   Changes I have made to them: - added a battery box and inside LEDs  - used stainless screws on the band that hods the fabric to the tub only because I don't like the look of the rusted screws.     If you think you'll be purchasing one I would recommend stopping at a Gander Mountain if you have one near by and getting a set of hyfax since they are going out of business there is a good amount of ice gear. I found hyfax recently there for $15 a set.
