Lake O'Dowd

2 posts in this topic

O' Dowd lake is supreme for sunnies and bass. Alot of vegetation and perfect conditions. I personally have been going out to a dock area, walking across to the opposite side of an island and fishing off the shore. There is a weed line, next to a rock line, that stretches all the way to the island across the way. Set up a slip bobber rig with any kind of smaller hook, add a wax worm. BOOM. You barely have time to close the bail before your bobbers under. You will catch alot of little ones, but every once and a while you'll real in some nice keepers. My buddy went out with me and caught a 6 pound bass off a wax worm on a plain hook. One of the funniest things ive ever seen. Lake O'Dowd in Shakopee is one of the most underrated lakes in Sota. Check it out.

I have to agree, but...you better be there by 5 am and off by 10:00am before the skiers hit it. Also some very nice pike in there.

      Plus, resorts would love to have you, now that no one goes to them due to the closing of walleye fishing.

      Must of been tough to sit there looking at the lake and not fish! Can't believe it was 60 up there today!? Not what I was hoping for. Didn't hit 50 down by the cities today.

      Looking at staying at Thunderbird or Sha Sha resort.  We want to spend some time fishing the Canadian side as well.  How long does it take to get from there to the Canadian Causeway bridge?  I've got a Lund ProV with a 200hp and usually run about half throttle.

      What amoerage batteries do you have? I finally got my gearbox back from clam this week..... a little to late... I am so glad they used us for product testing and ended up screwing me out of going electric this year, I am selling it early next season and going with the k-drill
