Osakis action ???

Recommended Posts

fish4ever

I have read a few previous posts on the december action on Osakis. Was just wondering on the recent action. I will be on the lake this weekend(Jan. 25)The cabin between Buck point and Lakeshore. Looking for those crappies and Sunny's. Has the action picked up on the north end? Did pretty good by Holiday Resort in 40' of water last year.

My cabin is next to Holiday resort and my brother last weekend said he only caught a few crappies in that deep water out there.
Should be getting better as time goes by!
They really bite good in February.
The water is cloudy this year and I think that has alot to do with the slow action this year! The lower portion of Osakis is even cloudier! Go figure!
Good Luck!

We just got back from there on the 20th, we fished anywhere from 20 to 40 feet on the sunken island toward the north side of the lake. Nothing. We did have some good bites but nothing up the hole. We will go back though, had a great time even though we didnt catch anything . If you need to stay somewhere I would suggest Head of the Lakes resort. On Friday we had problems jacking up our house and Rick from the resort worked on it for an hour and got it fixed he truely saved our weekend. Good luck and let us know how you did.

Thanks for the info. In front of Holiday Resort is usually good for fall Crappies. We did OK there last September. We did even better off Coon point. We caught some really nice bluegills there.

Well, ive been fishing off of coon point on the hump to the south, and caught some eyes one the 17th, but have come up short ever since. They were catching some crappies and few sunnies in front of Holiday and deep edge of coon in 40 ft or so, not sure, might try bay in front of Buck pt. some houses over there have been pretty active lately. If your out on friday or saturday, stop by and see how things are going. Will probably still be out there doing some fishing. Good Luck. Keep us posted on how things go.

Well.....it sounds like the fish haven't totally shut down. I see a front is coming in Friday. This may help. I will be in a homemade Blue portable with an orange sled bottom somewhere by Holiday resort. Stop by and say hello if you see it.

Good luck boyz.

Osakis,
I was catching mine on black jig with 2 silver wigglers, and had to jig it pretty good till they came in on the cam and then stop and let it set there, and then just barely jig it, so it harly moves, just squirms around and then they would come up and suck it in, but watch em, cause alot were just sucking in a little at first and holding it, then taking it all the way. Good luck tell me if ya find any more eyes, ill be chasing em. Brent

      Rough weekend at the lake... but still better than any day at work! I managed to get out for a few hours Saturday morning and then got off the lake when the storms rolled in and stayed off. I threw for muskies for a few hours but didn't move any and then switched to smallies and boated a few on rock piles.  We were stuck for a while on Saturday with the road near Camp Vermilion washed out. Looks like the whole area got quite a bit of water. How'd everyone else fare?

      Does anyone know if you can get a digital thermostat for the roof top AC units? I have a coleman mach 3 plus. The fan constantly stays on and is super loud. But it does work really well for cooling. Any help would be appreciated.

      Spent the weekend on Ottertail, fishing tough. Waves 1 to 3 ft. 4" rain Sat. night, on/off rain all weekend. Caught a few biggest 18". Water crystal clear 15+ ft, even with waves, due to millions of Zebra Mussel in lake. Weeds and clam shells had many Zebras attached. Still better than working.

      My intent is not to bash here. Many Rapalas are great lures but a heads up I had 5 of them on the casting deck of the boat in the heat within 3 hours every one of the split from the heat!!! Wow that was money down the tubes. I have never had that happen. Also it is never a good idea to slap a lure to get weeds off I'm aware of that nonetheless my bride slapped her's to get a weed off nothing violent but what she got back was a lure in pieces. I love many of the lures but wont be buying any off those again. I have had the lips pull out on the Shad Raps before. My favorite is the Fat raps those are indestructible.

      It happens.  If you timed if post-spawn, its definitely tougher.  It takes them a while to recover and get into their summer pattern.

      Stovetop?  Walleye on west end is tough because there are fewer and they are mostly larger fish that don't seem to behave the same way as smaller ones.

      Pike should be working well on the deep weedlines leading into the two slop bays that Del mentioned. They are commonly calle "The Nursery". Largies should be anywhere in the weeds. Del also hit the nail on the head about the Windsock island and the bay behind it. The windsock island area can be a good walleye producer in the early mornings and sometimes in the evenings. Don't forget to try the larger "bay" (really more of an indentation) past the Windsock island and its associated bay. Lots of boulders in there so be careful, you'll see some shiny rocks! I've had good success in there  for both species of bass and pike, lots of nice sunnies too. There is a reef that runs from the point directly out across Norwegian from the resort marina and runs from there to the other shore running to the northeast. Good spot for the evening walleye bite. You'll probably also want to try fishing the Merry Go Round and the Stovepipe on Wak-Em-Up Bay for walleyes and smallies. I'll try to post more info when I have a bit more time!
