Owasso/Johanna

11 posts in this topic

Had planned to get out there today-change of plans had us at Johanna. Big fat zero- but it beats workin', and was a nice day to at least get the boat in the water. That will be it for awhile, unfortunately. Have had decent luck on Johanna in the past, but last few times- zip.

I fished Johanna last night for bass and had pretty good luck despite the wind. The kayak was getting blown around a lot but I was still able to pull some nice bass from the docks laugh.gif

I've actually caught fish on this lake the last two times I've been out! Last summer it routinely skunked me.

I caught my first muskie on it a couple of weekends ago and we managed a couple of smaller northerns that day too.

Last weekend I ran into a crappie.

Not to hijack this thread, but does this lake seem to be busier this year than in the past??

No, IMO. Depends on when you go, I guess. Sometimes I am driving past running kids here and there, and it is packed. Other times, none or maybe a few rigs out there. As always, Metro lakes are a better bet on weekdays, if you don't want company and those *%$#@ jet-skis buzzing you non-stop.

I was on Owasso 6/28 with my son. We routinely fish it for muskies. Had 1 blow up on a glide bait and a follow on a bobbie bait (7incher) Hard to tell size I think about a 40".

Give a man a fish,he'll have a meal. Teach him how to fish he'll eat many meals.

Was out there last night. Dead-sea city. Tried for Pike - Nada, Walters in front of the access - missed three bites, Bass along docks - no dice.

I won't be back for a while.

      Sounds like my problem, Thanks

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
