Owasso

5 posts in this topic

Making the first venture out in the boat for panfish this spring - anyone been on Owasso yet? Are the legions of little crappies active? Thanks!

Did you ever make it out?

We did. The wind was pretty bad. Caught sunnies & the odd tiny perch but never saw a crappie. We did mark fish in the 8-12 foot range that weren't biting - that might have been them. But the population of 15 million crappies weren't playing nice on Friday afternoon. tongue.gif

Yea, I fared about the same on Owasso on Saturday. Couldn't find the darn crappies.

i saw some huge bluegills and some decent crappies the other day. there is a canal that leads down from sucker lake to vadnais. stood on the walking bridge and just watched them come up to the worms we were throwing. nice looking fish. do you think they are just kidding when they put up the 50 no fishing signs? confused.gif

at least its fun to take the kids down there to see them.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
