The Otter Run - FM Get-Together!

2 posts in this topic

Bring on the ice because it's time for The Otter Run! This FM Get Together in South Central MN has been scheduled for Saturday, January 5 and will be held on Lake Frances.

This event has been put together for men, women and children of all ages to join in on the action and there is no cost to attend! Be prepared for a day of ice fishing and socializing, as well as on-ice seminars that will give you an opportunity to learn some "tips and tricks" from our Fishing Minnesota Pro Staff.

The event will begin by meeting at Reel Fishing and Tackle in Madison Lake, MN at 7:00 am. This will give you a nice opportunity to meet our South Central Forum sponsor and pick up some bait and tackle before heading to the lake.

We will leave Reel Fishing and Tackle as a group by 7:30 am and head to Lake Frances to chase down whatever will tug on our lines. If you are not able to meet at Reel Fishing and Tackle in Madison Lake, MN, you will find us near the public access on the E end of the lake. That is the access where we will "launch" from.

There will be lunch breaks on the ice as well as a social event in the evening when we've had enough! Feel free to bring whatever you'd like to eat and drink as these things will not be provided.

Please respond to this post if you plan to attend. I hope to see many new and old faces!

      Quick question about the DNR launch on the very north end of Big Sauk in Sauk Centre. Is there ample parking? Also, is the launch in good shape? Too steep? Too shallow? I plan to go up this weekend with a 16 ft deep V.   Any fishin reports or water condition reports are welcomed too :-)   Thanks in advance!!

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.

      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff
