Any Ice Reports? I have a spot but too far to walk from North shore... We did real well last Feb but they can't wait all winter to eat. I think we just need a staedy Barometer.

Hey thanks Guys for the ice report! I have had a hellacious winter at work and need to get back to fishing soon. I know there are some out there that would love to have a job so I am not complaining too much but man has it been nuts.

As for fishing my brother and I headed out to Owasso on a whim on the last day of open walleye last year during the storm and lit up a bunch of little walleye, sad to say they were my first through the ice so I was ecstatic, we ended up with a few 18-20 inch fish so all was not lost. I think Sunday may be my next attempt.

There is the shelf that pretty much runs that whole side of the lake. You can fish deep or shallow. ole

What are you all using on Owasso and how deep are you finding them? Any luck with panfish there? If so, same questions, where, what and how deep?

Anyone going to be out on Saturday? I'll be heading out with my brother-in-law and another friend. We usually set up in the NW bay in 10-20ft but might venture out and try a new spot. I'm mainly interested in burning up some old gas in my snowmobilies so I don't know how much fishing I'll do. Don't worry, I'll try to be curtious and stay away from anyone who's fishing. I'll be in a black fish trap (it's call the Winnie)... stop by and say hi if you wish. It will be nice to be out in some "warm" weather!

Good luck!

Steve

Not much to report. I made it out there... just didn't do any fishing! The North West bay was packed!! I haven't been on Owasso for a few weeks... I've never seen so many people on the NW bay. A couple of friends of mine set up a little further back in the bay for the evening bite and picked up a handful of eye's as the sun set. (Jigging spoons and minnow heads) Nothing very big. They had a lot of lookers on the Vex. It just wasn't an agressive bite.

Does anyone else have anything to report? Anyone from the crowd in the NW bay??

      I'd ride shotgun then.   But if we get busted at the Border, I'm running!           North!

      Yep kind of a catch 22 the cold is blowing in!

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
