Osceola

3 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone has been fishing from shore near the osceola bridge. I was thinking about giving it a try this weekend but I wasn't sure if it would be worth it.

Any reports/help would be appreciated.

The knock about that area is the huge numbers of canoes floating down the river...and most of which take out at that landing. You wouldn't think that would be a problem if your fishing from shore, but for some reason the majority of those canoers feel it very necessary to hug the shoreline as they drift down, and they apparently have no problems at all running over your fishing lines. It bugs me that they have that whole river to go down but they decide to stay tight along the shorelines and make no effort to avoid your lines. It's annoying and disrespectful. Sorry for rambling, but I had to vent. As far as the fishing goes, you'll catch everything that swims in the river...mostly suckers and redhorse though.

The canoe folks bank at Osceola, some go all the way down to Williams O'brien. Problem with canoists is that the newbies really don't know how to steer. The really do run into your fishing lines while trying to avoid it. At least I believe that's the case.

I haven't been down to Osceola. In the past, once in while you can catch a walleye/sauger in Osceola. Plenty of small mouth bass in the area. Lot's of suckers and sheepshead. A kitty here and there and sturgeons.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
