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.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
