Anyone drivin out on Osakis?????

Recommended Posts

Skeets

I would not advise driving at all.
The ice is 8-10-12 inches AT BEST.
I wait till 2-3 feet or my wheels stay on shore. I personally don't have a extra couple thousand dollars to pay in fines.
It might also be hard to fish again if you are dead...think about it!

I was wondering if anyone was driving out on Lake Osakis yet? Also, what is the ice conditions like up there? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Thanks Skeets for the comment. I drove out on the north side of the lake last weekend. We did fairly well, however, a lot of small walleyes, only 8 within the slot limit. This weather does help any. Thanks for the response.

Osakis Resort,
We were over by the Holiday resort off the shoreline in about 17-25 feet of water. The bottom was sandy and we were about 12-18" off bottom. A lot of small walleyes under 15 inches, but it was still fun.

Osakis Report,
I have been on Osakis for the last three weeks. I spend about 3 nights a week sleeping out there and have had some success. The weekend was great, but the fish have moved as of the las two days. I only fish walleyes and am on a small hump. The low light times have been good, but the bes fishing has been late at night. Midnight - around 4 am. I am going to move my house deeper and will be looking around the 28-34 foot mark. Moon glows and small shinners have worked for me, but I always have my buckshot rattler in the water. I gave given angle eyes a fair shot this year, and haven't caught a fish on them yet. I am hoping that the NW Angle will be the ticket for Angle Eyes this weekend. I don't care if anyone fishes BY me, but I only need my girlfriend on top of me. Good Luck.

      Boot lake is not open to fishing.  I checked typo lake yesterday. Really sketchy right out from the access about 10 feet or so. Past that there was 4.5 inches. I did not fish just wanted to see if I got the new auger blades on correctly

      Nice Duff.  Don't you have a furs and feathers board, or you don't hunt and eat um? 🤔

      Here's what I have in the man cave. I refer to it as "The BIG Board". Usually add a couple pics a year, this year I've added 7. (It's been a good year)   On a log basis, I've kept track of days fished on ice and open water, species caught, and how many different bodies of water per year. About to wrap up year 20 of doing that, usually just jot it down on the calendar at work and tally it up at years end. That log total list is on the side of  The BIG Board.

      Any news of ice conditions in the Mankato area?

      Wanted a smaller compact high ah battery for early ice to run my camera. Found the Milwaukee M12 comes in a 3ah version, ¼ the weight and size of the small 12v lead acid and charges in 30 min verses 12 hours. Also the + - contacts in the battery match the male outlet plug and work with male spade lugs so connecting it to electronics doable. On line I can get a twin pack 4ah under $40. Pic is the smaller 3ah with a 5.5mm power cable. Video is my camera panner in motion with the M12's.

      My 4th year in southern MN. Seams to be normal deer running around where we have been hunting.

      Definitely would give the season a B. We were very fortunate in seeing a good number of deer. I sat a total of 4 sits during gun season and saw a total of 26 deer 6 bucks the rest does and fawns.  We went 4-5 with 3 nice bucks and doe being harvested. Would of easily filled the last tag but my brother is a trophy hunter and is very selective.  Me and my brother practice QDM and have put in a lot of food plots and minerall licks over the years and it has really paid off. . Its a lot of work but the rewards are worth it as I harvested 5 bucks in the last 5 years this year a  Nice 9 point . Looking forward to checking our trail cams soon to take note also  of our buck inventory.

      Where I hunt in the extreme eastern part of the arrowhead deer numbers show be low. My group of 7 guys hunted the whole season and saw 5 deer while hunting. A spike buck has been lucky as most have seen him and chose to let him walk. My dad took a 6 pointer that was chasing a doe. It’s not about killing a deer for me it’s about spending time with my family and it was a great year.    The population is where it it should be in the arrowhead. I am excited to see a possible wolf season coming again up there as it’s fun to have a wolf tag in the pocket just in case one slips up and comes out by you. My season was great would I have liked to see a few deer yepbut it was the relaxing I needed and provided me the stress relief I needed.   Taking out wolves would help the moose population so that is my stance!!!

      Thanks for checking and the report 
    • iiccee63
      Well I went out and checked the lake Friday am. All locked up. I walked out a bit and it looked like 2 inches. It froze over even which is good. Hopefully it's 2 inches out in the middle too. More info to come!
