Osakis whats the word!

12 posts in this topic

I am looking for a recent report on Osakis lake. We will be venturing up in that area next week. We fish primarly bass, and pike but will also fish for Walleye and pan fish if time permits.

Thanks in advance

chan93lx502, Welcome to FM.

The panfish bite on Osakis has been very good on the main lake bars. The fish have been biting on angle worms close to the bottom.

Good luck and let us know who it went.

Last week nice 3/8 to 1/2 and a few 3/4 lb. sunnies were biting great just off Coon point. We were out this AM (Thurs.)and caught a few smaller ones. They have changed areas, or the bite has quit?

Fish in about 12'-14' and keep the bait within 3"-6" off bottom. Anyone have info. on a better area, please post a note, It will be apreciated.

Was up last weekend and the walleye bite was slow. Did get a couple but no keepers. We fished for sunfish the last day and got some nice hand sized ones. We lost more fish than we caught though. We were jigging off the bottom with night crawlers and half leaches. but i would go with angle worms if you have them. I would try any of the bars or sunken islands 15 to 30 feet.

Osakis can be a tricky lake to fish, be carfull the Bluegills bit very light and the lighter pound test teh better. Also they normally are near teh bottom and in deeper water this time of year, also the Crappie. Don't know what to say on the weather, but if you have not got any money down you may want to try a different week, the weather is spoose to be down right terrible this weekend and into part of next week with colder weather after that. It may turn the panfish right off. Good Luck.
