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.

      Wasn't out but just drove by Locke lake by hasty on 94. There were about 8 people out on the lake. All walked out. Not even ATV's. Best I can give ya.

      Hoping things button up with the colder night time temps later in the week...all the crappies I have been getting lately have been shallow....and I'm talking even on edges of pencil reeds in that 8ft depth.  IMO they are acting like late March panfish, very aggressive and seem to have started the migration towards their spawning grounds.  I'll be out catching crappies even if I have to walk out...who knows...maybe mother nature will throw us a another curveball and it will get real cold again in a couple weeks. Good Luck!
