The Otter Run - FM Get-Together!

Recommended Posts

Team Otter

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!

      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?

      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      Anyone ice fishing the pike river flowage this year? Main lake or narrows upstream of Hwys 1 or 77? I may go this weekend. Thx

      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.

       Flooded,  inlet valve is not seating from being warn,  debris in the valve, or improper metering lever height. The later is what I would suspect since you've already had the carb apart.  The meter lever is the link from metering gasket to the inlet valve. This controls the flow of fuel.  That adjustment is normally level with the floor of the carb body.   An incorrect setting will allow fuel to freely flow into the carb with engine off. Or it can starve for fuel not allowing enough fuel into the carb.
