Ossawinnamakee?

5 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

Gonna be up in the Brainerd area for late christmas with my girlfriends family over New Years weekend. Staying at a relatives cabin right on ossawinnamakee. Whats the fishing like on this lake. I know its small but is it worth fishing? Or should I venture over to one of the other lakes?

Thanks for the info and happy holidays!

The walleye bite on Pelican is good right now. It's real close to where you are located. Just bring some jigging rods rigged up with a few jigging spoons and some fatheads. Should produce a few eyes for you.

Ossy is a long narrow lake. It can be good if you know where to go. Has nice wallys and crappies. Need a sled or ATV to get around. I think if your unfamiliar with the area I would go to some of the well known areas. Pelican is good at early ice. Ice has built up really fast. close to 12" now. A portable house is real handy. Pelican is a morning and evening lake most of the time. Hit the 20-25 foot drop offs with jigs and tipups with a shiner or fathead. Get a lake map. you will see people on the popular spots. Pelican has many good accesses on all sides of the lake. Good luck and dress warm.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
