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.

      4-6" of snow this weekend on top of our new ice hopefully the cold snap early next week will keep making ice through it and we don't end up with the slushy mess of last year.

      There is a lot of my fishing friends and captains talking about this new app called fishangler. The app is giving away$$$$ for 2016 cool fish pics. Has anyone heard of it and what do you think?

      I was thinking the same thing.  Given the forecast, it should get locked up sooner rather than later.    Of course, it *was* nice to get out fishing last week in the boat.  First time I can honestly say I've fished the lake in a boat in December.  And if the quality of the fishing last week has anything to say for it, it's going to be another amazing year on the lake. There'll be plenty of fish caught, that's for sure.
