December Morson reports here! Happy holidays!

Recommended Posts

Well, Pelican Landing posted the following report under fall fishing... but it sure ain't fall any more, not with 20 below and 40 below wind chills!

Any more reports out there? I'm wondering about slush and ice ridges???

I'm not heading up until the 31st but will report when we get back on the 5th..

Happy Holidays everyone!

Here's Ken's report:

"16 inches of ice 6 inches of snow on ice with deeper drifts more snow forcast tomorrow trucks are good to go sled is your best bet. Have not been fishing yet will be out this weekend. Had a great hunting season some beautifull bucks. Thanks for the smoked salmon it was great. Have a crew booked in over new years weekend will give a report. Looking forward to seeing you this winter catching fish and having some.''

went for a cruise east of Morson in the Sabaskong area. Rough riding out in the open because of drifted snow. over east we found alot of slush,more in the bay areas but it was only a few inches deep. found a few small pressure ridges but them can form anytime. I was hoping to make it up to Miles but it was getting late in the day and it was cooling off fast. Heading back this weekend and hopefully new years for some lakers.

Thanks for the report BDude! Hope the lake isn't as rough as it was last winter.. those drifts were a bummer on my herniated discs!!!

Hope you had a nice Christmas...

    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
    • You got it, Borch!  I was disappointed with how the season ended, but you're definitely right!  I also learned a trick this year- cards!  Morgan really enjoyed playing cards with me in the blind.  It was a good way to pass the time and we enjoyed it quite a bit.  We had a great season together and enjoyed it a ton!     That last encounter we had was really something!  I'm convinced the worst thing birds can do to a bowhunter is to come in to the deeks is stand there and stare.  I'd rather they hung up and didn't come in or did pretty much anything but that.  It makes it virtually impossible to get a bow drawn!  The turkey was at about 5 yards, because I knew we I needed one close for Morgan.  However, at five yards and staring directly in the direction of the blind, she was smart to not try to draw.  That dang bird stood there for two full minutes and didn't move a muscle.  Morgan had a smile from ear to ear and at one point told me "I was so excited and my heart was pounding so hard I thought I might die!"     It would have been a slam dunk with her crossbow, but she wanted to get one with a vertical bow.  I'm proud of her for sticking with it and she said "I'm just fine with not shooting one, Dad."  I'm glad she's ok with that.  I wish I was more ok with it...  but, that's hunting!  
    • Sounds like he is going to bring "fire" to the team haha.  Hoping he can come up with something to do with all the aging players who aren't living up to their contracts.     Also heard that Coyle played the last 2 months with torn ligaments in his wrists.  Going in for surgery.  Kind of an eye opener really, Coyle with torn wrist ligaments is better than anything they could've moved up that is healthy?  Uh oh....
    • Hey, it's all good. Morgan and you spending time together in the outdoors and getting a close encounter is what it's all about.     Sometimes the birds win and we simply run out of time.
