#1.  Yes.  The lake main lakes get a lot of activity, especially on the weekends with jet skiers.  The canal systems aren't to crowded but only few people courteous enough to slow down when passing you.

#2.  My best lures have been 7.5 - 10 inch worms.  June Bug, Red Shad and Black.  Shad Raps and chrome rattle traps also produce.

#3.  Anywhere there is no boat traffic bothering you.  Don't be afraid to fish in the middle of the lake.

#4. Lake averages 6-10 feet.  There are places that get 25' though.

There's a few decent spots you can get to by foot, but there are a lot of trees around there overhanging and stuff... Definitely better on a boat, but you can do some shore fishing... I caught a nice 3 pounder outta there a few days ago on my lunch break!  ;)

What part of the lake was that, and what color and kind of lure was it?

I've been to Lake Osborne and lake Ida quite a few times and despite the raves I hear I have not done well from shore, I need to know the spot, lol.

My best freshwater success has been in the canals in both Delray and Boynton.  My latest favorite technique has been a gold 1/4 oz spoon(weedless ok) and cast as far as I can to the opposite shore and retrieve fairly quick on a diaganal to where I'm standing on the bank.  This has been productive latley.
