Had planned to get out there today-change of plans had us at Johanna. Big fat zero- but it beats workin', and was a nice day to at least get the boat in the water. That will be it for awhile, unfortunately. Have had decent luck on Johanna in the past, but last few times- zip.

I fished Johanna last night for bass and had pretty good luck despite the wind. The kayak was getting blown around a lot but I was still able to pull some nice bass from the docks laugh.gif

I've actually caught fish on this lake the last two times I've been out! Last summer it routinely skunked me.

I caught my first muskie on it a couple of weekends ago and we managed a couple of smaller northerns that day too.

Last weekend I ran into a crappie.

Not to hijack this thread, but does this lake seem to be busier this year than in the past??

No, IMO. Depends on when you go, I guess. Sometimes I am driving past running kids here and there, and it is packed. Other times, none or maybe a few rigs out there. As always, Metro lakes are a better bet on weekdays, if you don't want company and those *%$#@ jet-skis buzzing you non-stop.

I was on Owasso 6/28 with my son. We routinely fish it for muskies. Had 1 blow up on a glide bait and a follow on a bobbie bait (7incher) Hard to tell size I think about a 40".

Give a man a fish,he'll have a meal. Teach him how to fish he'll eat many meals.

Was out there last night. Dead-sea city. Tried for Pike - Nada, Walters in front of the access - missed three bites, Bass along docks - no dice.

I won't be back for a while.

      Shorelines are starting to open, do you see the wood ducks?

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.  
    • TomWehler
      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.
