The lake gets a lot of traffic from pleasure boaters and the access fills up quick. The access isnt great but you shouldnt have problems launching. I dont walleye fish much in the summer but this winter I figured Id try it out. From what I found is that their are lots of little eyes 10-12" and a few bigger 20"+ (which I dont keep) but not much in between. As far as other species... Bass, not much better than many of lakes in the area. Pike, a few nice ones but you probably wont catch much. Muskies, dont even get me started! I tried fishing them on more than one occasion with no success. Panfish are small, its famous for it stunted crappies...

Join the club! All I hear is Owasso produces big muskies, and all I get is lured into a big zero. As soon as I see a pic of an Owasso Muskie, maybe I'll be back...Actually, I'll probably hit Owasso this weekend because I'm so gullible. tongue.gif

Turnup's info is right on in my book. We have seen a few northern in Owasso - one day had two big ones follow a lure in & decide that the boat made a nice cool shadow for them to lurk in. Both stuck around for a few minutes so we had a great look at them. Both appeared to be 30 inches plus which is a big northern in the metro in my book. Good fun even if we didn't hook the toothy things. grin.gif

I have wanted to summer walleye fish owasso, but I normally just bass fish it. In the winter we killed little waleye (8-12) inchers and then later in the winter we found a crappie honey-hole, but most were smaller (6-8) inchers. Biggest winter crappie there was 11 inches and my biggest winter walleye was 18 inches.

My friend lives on this lake and his neighbor walleye fishes a lot. He said to fish in 10-15 FOW by the ski jump. He said around the ski jump there is a rock pile that he kills them on.

I tihnk I am gonna try this weekend...I wil post my results.

Good Luck guys

Was out last night and was very supprised at the size of the bass in this lake. I had about 6 fish 14-15", two 17", and one 21.5" !! The big one must have been pushing 6.5 lbs, very nice fish I realy never new they were in there.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
