Lake Osakis - July 4th Weekend

Recommended Posts

Andy...fishing-wise it should be a great time on the water (when is it bad?! smile.gif )
Evening walleyes, and panfish all day...

As for off shore activities, there are several fireworks displays in several surrounding communities, including Osakis. Antique shops in town...auto racing at the track here in Alexandria...

Lots of possibilities....a great destination!

Andy,

I have a cabin on the lake and fishing is always best over the 4th i think. We stayed last year for a week over the 4th and we got 5 or 6 nice walleyes every night and also some small ones, but anything under 15" you must put back. and sometimes you think you have a lunker on and its a huge bullhead. They just built a new go-cart track by the beach on the south part of the lake that looks like it should be fun. Also the beach has a large slide and two floating rafts. well good luck

Thinking about trying to get up to Osakis during 4th of July Weekend. What can one expect fishing wise during this time? Also what type of things to do in town during this time? THanks.

Due to excessive crowds, you may opt to fish for bass. The bass fishing on Osakis and surrounding lakes is excellent. There isn't much to it.

As Ghotierman states, the fireworks out of Osakis are well worth it also.

I agree, fishing is good and for a smaller town, Osakis has an impresive fireworks display.

Also, you asked about other things to do. If you like bicycle riding, walking or rollerblading, there is a newly paved trail that runs between Osakis and Alexandria, even farther west if your into distance.

I agree the 4th week is a good time to catch fish and enjoy the weather most of the resorts have fireworks. its an annual for my friends and family.

Osakis, I believe, is a dry town, but there's a muni south east of town. Long Prairie (15 minutes east on 10) has a drive-in movie theater! I've never patronized the resorts, but I hear they are nice.

Well, 4th of July there are alot of shops either up town or Alexandria is only 10 miles and gets you away from alot of the hustle and bustle. they do have fireworks, and the go-cart/mini golf will be up and running. The fishing at this time is really good, its around summer peak and everything is usually bitting well.

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.

      Looks like it was a successful outing ST. My boat probably  hates me as I haven't had it out for a swim yet. MAYBE, if I'm lucky I will be able to get out over Memorial weekend. Thanks for the report.

      Most of the streams are small. Where I focus is the small streams in the back country for brook trout. Casting is hard on these streams. Some of the bigger rivers can be good. Remember the crazy rules on these streams. 
    • monstermoose78
      Wow Eyeguy you can catch them and panfish. Keep it up and let’s hear about some details.
    • monstermoose78
      The walleye bite is heating up around the area. Bass are on the beds and panfish are keeping most anglers busy. Remember the new pike regs are in place now. Good luck and let’s hear some reports and see some more photos!! Thank you to all that check my reports. I am off to get some fishing in. 
    • monstermoose78
      Hello everyone,  please check out the fishing report clubs. I believe the first few members can get in free. I hope you are all doing well fishing and hunting. I look forward to reading your reports.  If you any questions just ask. thank you, monstermoose

      Thanks for the reports guys.

      The last few days have been pretty hot on areas of the river for a lot of nice bass between 16-18 inches, topping out at 19 inches for my largest. Many were fish located on spawning beds, some hitting aggressively and immediately, and some not interested in even acknowledging the bait. I started out with a 4 inch wacky worm on a VMC wacky weedless jighead, but found that I was getting larger, more aggressive fish by switching to a 5 inch wacky. I would Imagine that the spawn will be all but over within a few days.
