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.

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.
