Morson Travel

Recommended Posts

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

    • 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.  
    • 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.
    • Try going over to this thread. Rock & Edibles-Agates-Fossils-Artifacts-Mushrooms-Ginseng-Gems-etc. There is some discussion taking place under Morels' 2018 already.
    • Guys and Gals, I have searched high and low and have found none at all this spring.  Anyone have an success.  I am guessing it is too dry.  Will they still pop?  Any advise? "Set the Hook", Flash  
    • Wow, my spots are way behind this year. Had hoped to find a bunch before this coming long weekend for a big family Walleye and Morel fry but have only found 5 small grays so far. Just not seeing the ground cover growing very much yet and have saw no other types of mushrooms which seem to grow first pop up yet. This is a very late year so far.
