Morson Travel

10 posts in this topic

Is there an ice road out of Morson? How far does it go? Does it go to Miles? My buddy was telling me there was a few years back and were able to fish both crappies and walleyes off of that road. Just wondering if he is full of it. Thanks guys!

The only ice road in the Morson area is from Gills Marina to the Red Marker north of Hanson Bay. There is no road to Miles.

Bill,

There is a snowmobile trail that follows the "South track" from Hanson Bay to Miles Bay. Marked with pine boughs & an occasional stake. Not sure if it continues past Miles as that is as far as I've followed it.

The pine bough trail runs up to the entrance to Arrow Lake just north of Grassy Narrows. I didn't see anything else marked up in Miles last weekend.

No plowed roads, but guys were driving 4wd pickups in some areas on Saturday on top of the packed snow. I wouldn't do it, but they were...

Snowmobiling was perfect, however, never better...

they did plow some roads for the derby but they go just as far as the point out from Mylie's. I seen quite a few pickups coming from the Manitou island area. you could go anywhere out there in the open with a 4wd. Someone took a rut plow and went out towards Fox island. as far as sled travel its the best i seen so far. there is about 4-5 inches of powder. so look out for them snowbanks. there is another derby up there on March 21. going for that one.

i didnt get anything at the derby plus I was a little late. i only got to fish the last 1 1/2 hr. i had my portable out there but there was other people using it. there was little breeze out of the west but I endured the conditions. had more fun running around and burning gas. Sounds like dad won some stuff on the raffle or something. he had a few fish but they was small. head back up on the 21st for the other derby. they got bigger prizes. still not sure when i am leaving yet. just waiting for work to call. i hate when they cant make up their mind. oh well.....hey good luck up there and I will let dad know you are heading up and that you are gonna use my portable

    • Who has it for that price? Is the transducer included? I have a 5" version. They are good units but if you ever need out of warranty service they will not repair your unit. They give you credit towards a refurbished unit of the same type or let you upgrade to a different model for a certain price which is something to be aware of. I found that out when my elite 5 wouldn't turn on.
    • Your post is demonstrative of the point I am trying to make. Rural areas have been sold a bunch of talk, and you believe that talk and vote against your own interests. The metro area is taking nothing away from the rural areas in terms of taxes, tax dollars flow the other way. It flows that way through employers that exploit you. A particular quote from "What's the Matter with Kansas?" really nails the point home.      
    • I agree, but for the few times I do overnights I would use a light weight cot.  The hitch design is different than most of the other houses on the market.  It looks to have pivot points at the corners of the main frame.  I have yet to see one go through the drop or rise process.  A video of it operating steps would be nice too.   It would be great to hear from someone that ownes one.  
    • I have the hook 7 with down imaging/GPS/standard sonar, I have the lowrance lake chip for mine and really like it.  easy to use and good quality images on the screen.
    • I'm also in the market for a new pair of boots this year. I actually had a pair of Rocky boots that my wife bought me over 16 years ago but it is high time to replace them. I need a pair that lace up because of my prosthetic right foot so the Muck boot types are out for me. I think I will just get a pair of LaCrosse Ice Kings. What amount of Thinsulate is needed in a warm winter boot? I found a pair of Ice Kings on Amazon that says it is only 400 g. of Thinsulate but it is rated for -70. That doesn't seem right to me. Shouldn't it be much more Thinsulate?   https://www.amazon.com/LaCrosse-Ice-King-10-Brown/dp/B0047BWZHO/ref=sr_1_1?s=apparel&srs=2600960011&ie=UTF8&qid=1480899050&sr=8-1&keywords=lacrosse%2Bice%2Bking%2Bboots&th=1&psc=1
    • Friggin A!!!!!! 
    • Anybody have any input on these? I just bought a bigger boat and am looking for a bigger sonar. I found one of these for what seems to be too good of a deal ($520)
    • In the end all you need to see is when the jig disappears into the fishes mouth!  I've been using a Aqua Vu SV, it's old b&w with very small screen but it worked. But this year I won a Marcum camera from Thorn Bro's, (thank you). Lookin forward to trying it out.
