Need all help I can get on Osakis!!!

Recommended Posts

LaVoi

Hey there everybody, a couple of my brothers and a few of our friends will be going down to Osakis on the weekend of the 27-28 of June to camp and have our own little three team tournament. As you might imagine there will be a ton of bragging rights on the line, so I was hoping I could get some help from all you Osakis experts. This will be a walleye tournament and no one has ever fished the lake before. Some common info I was hoping for would be location of walleye near the end of June on Osakis. Lure or bait of choice. And any other info that might put our team on top would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, LaVoi

LaVoi...scroll down and check out some of the past posts on Osakis...lots of good information there. Also, I'd suggest picking up the new Lakemaster map of Osakis....3 foot contours will help you pinpoint your spots before your trip.

good luck..

Lavoi,

Going up on sat. to do a little walleye fishing. I will let you know next week how it went. But I think with the warm weather the fish are going to be out a little deeper during the day and on top of the bars at night.

I am heading up there after work today, should be at Linwood at 6pm. I hope this fish are still going to be bitting this weekend. Sounds like the weather is going to be around 85.

Strohslight,
maybe we will run into each other on the lake. I am leaving my boat at home and will be renting one of their boats but bringing my trolling motor. I will have pleanty of cold ones in the boat if we run into each other..

I will be on the lookout for you. If I remember right the rental boats at Linwood are bright yellow, there will be only myself and a buddy of mine out there.

We got on the lake around 7am Sat morning and started for the eye's, nothing. Went along the weedlines and trolled for northerns and just hammered them, everything you threw at them they took. We must of caught I bet 30 northerns all about 2lbs put them all back. Tried for eyes during the day and nothing. For the walleye tournement there were so many boats out there, once the final weight in was at 3:30 or 4pm the lake was empty. Barely any boats on the lake it was nice.
Did get nice and burnt out there thou. I look like a Lobster.

Strohslight31,

Going up there this thursday. Have you talked to anyone from Dunwoody lately. Pearce might come up this weekend with me. Try and find some eyes. Had a little luck 2 weeks ago. Shinners were the key. Tryed leeches, but not much with them.

Not sure if I'll be there for the 4th yet. But this weekend for sure. I guess my dad and my brother caught 9 out in front of the cabin in about 17ft of water. They said they lost twice as many. What time are you coming up on friday.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew.

      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more. 
    • monstermoose78
      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?
    • monstermoose78
      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.
