I am going to be heading to Star Lake in Otter Tail in a couple of weeks. This is my first trip to Star Lake. Any tips or fishing reports? Thanks in advance.

My dad would kill me if I put anything about Star on the net. But if you put in your time you will be rewarded. Just remember the sunfish limit is only 10. They watch it close.

I'll be at Star Lake on the 16th of June for a week, if that's when you're going to be there. If you need some pointers look me up! I'll be at the Galaxy in cabin #8. My Dad, always said "There is enough fish up here for everyone, so help them have a good time too!" He was right! Been fishing Star and the area lakes for 48 years! I'm 55 years old now and the area is still the best! You'll have fun and meet a lot of nice people who will help you!

A good friend of mine just returned from Dead Lake. Real bad weather last week. He watched 4 tornadoes from his cabin deck, and a big one towards Lida! Big Caps on the lakes. Looks like it is calming down now towards the end of this week. Said the water temp was 65 degrees. Crappie were out about 28 to 30 feet deep. Haven't moved shallow yet. Bass were Great, and they did good on the Eyes! Whatch out when the water temp hit 68! You'll have a ball! 3rd & 4th week are the Best!

      @leech~~ I believe the permit does require those houses to be moved out of the contest area.  Not necessarily kicked off the lake. That’s what permits are for, eh?  Looks like a great day for you two - congrats!  Might’ve been the lake, the spot or the fisher.  But I’ll go with the lake too.

      Anyone come up with a good way to store the dinette table when fishing? My IC has two holes under the dinette and I put it outside to fish but it is sooooo cold when I turn it into a bed to go to sleep. Thinking of a bracket to hang it inside but I don’t really want to block a window? Any ideas? What do you guys do?

      Went by there today and noticed a few house setup in the contest area.  What happens to them next weekend? They are told to move or get kicked off a public lake? Should have gone to a different lake there Wanderer. Just saying. My son and I today.

      There have been signs there for a long time,   maybe 30 years?
    • Spartacus218er
      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.
