Lake Osborne report 1/13/18
« on: January 13, 2018, 06:03:05 PM »

Date: 1/13/18
Time: 7:30 am - 12:00 pm
Weather : sunny
Air temp : 68-72 F
Wind: 5-13
Water Clarity: stained, 2 ft viewable

I havenít been to Lake Osborne in over a year and thought I would try again. I didnít know what to expect so I thought I would try a swim bait to figure where the fish are. I started on the north end near a dock and worked any open banks I could get to. The water level seemed to be very shallow. I didnít mind the shallowness but what got me was all the snot grass everywhere. I couldnít use any search baits effectively because I would be pulling so much vegetation on each cast.




I thought maybe I should move to another part of the lake where the snot grass wasnít as overwhelming. I found another dock in the below map not too far from the boat launch area. The water seemed just as shallow but I didnít pull up any grass with the swim bait. Nothing was biting the swimbait so it was time to go finesse. I finally got 2 dinks at the dock with a wacky rigged worm.







I tried to move to the dog park area in the park but there was so much boat traffic I gave up. I then moved to the square lake within the park. I saw something blowing up in the middle of the lake but was too far away to illicit a bite. Once the wind picked up to 11 mph I called it a day.

The lake looks like a good place to fish on a boat but with the overgrown grass along the bank, it was hard finding spots to fish from In all, it was good to try someplace new.

I have fished it from both the boat and bank.  Try down by the camping area on the south side.  I have caught some nice bass right by the store at the camping gate.

I agree with George. I've never fished up as far north as you did. I always fish below 6th ave. I have also fished Square Lake thats the one I told you has pads and vegetation.

Thanks for the report Roberto and sounds like that snot grass has about taken over that one part of the lake.

Great report Roberto.
The wacky worm saved the day.
Just being out there, enjoying the nice weather is worthy.

Its a tough place to fish from the shore. Using a boat opens up more opportunities for that lake. Its got some really nice grass areas to it.
