OSAKIS LAKE

Well, Ive been doing some searching for sunfish. Very little luck so far. I have a camera, and a flasher, and seem to come up empty. I did talk to someone who had caught some up on the north end but wouldnt give out any other info. Wondering about 3 and 4 mile bar. You said that you were fishing Johnson's Bar... how are you getting out there? where are you coming from? Any size to the perch? I wanted to get out there on sat. but a big ice heave from Battle Point. Did find some eyes around Coon Point on the hump to the south, on Friday night, caught 3 and tons on the camera. But have come up short since then. Tons of little perch during day, but thats it.

Do you live on the lake? Sounds like your real familiar with it. I have a cabin on Shultz Bay but don't know of the rock pile of which you speak. Do you mean the bar that runs out towards Battle Point that's not on the maps? Also, where the heck is Lakeshore Island? Is that by Lakeshore Resort?

ive lived on the lake for 20 years.the rock pile is about as big as a boat.its straight out in front of the house with the ceder siding .line up the funny little garage with battle point its 15 feet on top i drilled about 25 holes on top of it and i froze a water bottle in a hole on top of it.lakeshore island is out in the middle between coon and lakeshore.line up the beer sign on the point with coon point it will run you over the top of a few rocks on the bar. 19 feet on top.

Well, I went out all weekend, found some small sunnies and perch at the Red Boat house rock pile. and dropped the house there for awhile.

The sunnies that the bait house is talking bout is suposedly across from Battle PT. in 16ft of water, usually only black jigs and silver wigglers, but when i went out there to find the guys on sunday they werent there, they had gone someplace else, so im thinking maybe they shut down, or moved when they found out everyone was looking for the "Got Bait" truck. lol The walleyes should start hammering soon. Usually around the first of Feburary or so, they start to pick up, Well, good luck Brent

Osakis, thanks for the info. I know of were you speak. I think I was on the rock pile a couple of times this summer. Had real good fishing there but always had trouble finding it. Will go out this coming weekend and see if I can find your water jug thats frozen in. I think the rock pile must be on top of the bar I mentioned earlier and that may be what is tripping me up when I try to find it. Maybe it's time to buy a GPS.

Osakis,
When you say boat house, do you mean across from Coon point on the little bump out in the drop off where the rock pile is? I have my house there, on the weekline where the rocks start, havent been seeing any eyes, are you deeper or on top?

yep, hear em out there all the time workin on your house. that time of the year, you shoud be getting in some good walleye and sunnie action. North end would be best, the sunken Island by the north access is usually good that time of year, and around shultz bay on the drop off is usually prett good. The eyes are gonna start feeding to get the eggs developing so, any time now. Just watch how many fish over 3 lbs your taking out, lots of eggs in those. Keep checkin on here to see where everyone else is, should be good, moved the house today bout 10 yrd, wow, what a difference a few feet makes. If ya see me out at the house across from Coon in bout 14 ft of water, stop by, white house with angled roof. Good luck Brent

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs
    • Rick
      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.

      I’ve heard phenomenal things about the rivers, willhave to pull the kayak out and get on it. Thank you everyone for the feedback. I’ve checked out Clearwater, I really enjoyed it but lately it seems to tough for my 14ft boat to be stable out there on a windy day.  I’ve had success in Avon lately.
