Pete,
Bring both. However, it is trolling motor only. If you hve a canoe that is the way to go.

For the bass, pick up some Bill's scented lures(platics worm with pre-made leader) I think they might have changed names sicne the last time I bought some. However they are completely deadly on Resevoir bass!

Plastics and slips for the sunnies and crappies.

Have fun!!

PS> OH, your so close to trout and smallmouth heaven!!! JUst need to drive a few minutes further South!!!lol

Down to Earth

Hopefully the water will be down for you. I was out there on Monday night and water levels were 5ft above normal. Made fishing nearly impossible, well fishing was easy catching them was another story. I've done well on leeches out there and in the evenings I've done fairly good on rapalas with the bass. I may have to start trying some plastics as well.

Pete - I think Jim is refering to the Root River which lies south of Rochester.

      If ever a person wanted to accelerate their learning curve on Osakis, this would be a good time to do it! I’ll try to keep it open but I never know what’s going to happen with the kids wedding coming up - at our house - in September. Thanks for putting this on Borch. 😎

      I haven’t fished it but would use chubs like you mentioned if I did. Good luck ozzie.

      We fished the small lake a few week back the water was really high. No luck with bass around the pads tried Texas rigged worms and spinner baits, we did find crappies in 8-10" around Lilly pads and reeds crappies were caught on panfish leaches and small glow jigs.

      Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

      A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you.
