Lake osakis??

3 posts in this topic

Any new reports from osakis on ice or if there are any permanament shacks out? i would like to pull out the ice house for the weekend if there is enough ice. Sounds like there are some wheel houses out on minnawaska in glenwood?

In addition, I saw the first 2 pickup trucks made an appearance on 'Waska this morning... Out there quite a ways about 1/2 way between town and the DNR office/landing.

Drove by Osakis on Monday on 27 headed to LF and didn't really notice any mentionable ice activity / shacks up or out yet.

Thanks for the update. I ended up calling the local bait shop and sounds like 8" of ice on main part of osakis and 12" on north end. But only 4" out in front of holiday resort on north end. Thats where open water was a couple weekends ago. i am assuming people will be putting out some shacks with wheelers this weekend.

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.
