Lake Owasso

Recommended Posts

Mr. Pike1

Any reports from Owasso. I was planning on trying this body of water as it is close to home but due to the weather I hit an alternate lake for a few hours tonight. Any reports appreciated.

There's about 12" of ice on the Eastern end of Owasso (by the public access). Many cars on the ice, but near shore. I've got a truck so I'm waitin' a couple more weeks. Many of the permenant houses were pulled with the rain the other day so they wouldn't freeze in.

Heading out there tomorrow to see about some eyes'.

Have not heard much about Owasso yet this year.

How's the pike fishing in general during ice season on Owasso? I've heard that it supports a decent population of nice pike. Do you need to search the flats, or are the weedlines better? There certainly seems to be an abundance of forage in the form of miniscule perch and panfish, this info gleaned from my only personal experience on the lake.

Wonk, I don't know about ice fishing spots or habits, but I can verify there are some really nice pike in Owasso. We found them along the western shore on the steep drops in the summer, for what that's worth.

I can't speak for the fishing, but I live near the lake, and the traffic on the lake has been crazy! Trucks are now driving all over the lake, so I am assuming there is plenty of ice. smile.gif

Bj1, thank you for the report. My daughter who is 5 likes to go out on the ice with Dad but has a limited attention span. If I have an hour to kill I can bring by daughter the to catch a few 6"ers. I know late in the year I can take her to another little lake close to home were she can catch a gazillion 6" sunfish. You would think there might be a few bigger ones but maybe they are all stunted due to overpopulation and limited forage. I have also heard there can be a good walleye bite and some nice pike as well

Was out on Owasso yesterday off of the access on the East end by the beach, and caught 2 Red Lake sized crappies. One measured out at 12.5", and the other was 11". I've never caught more than a cold on that lake in the past for crappies, so it was a nice surprise.

Anyone have a good spot for catching larger pike on Owasso? All I ever seem to catch on that lake are axe handles...

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.

      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
    • Borch
      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?
    • Wanderer
      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!
    • Mlaker3
      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.
