I just purchased a Lakemaster map of Ottertail and the mapping program. It is a nice large map on waterproof paper with GPS coordinates. Shipping is free for now.

what are the contours on that map? 3', 5'? Is it easy to read?

Map has 3ft contours and is easy to read because the depth ranges are color coded. The map has 30 waypoint coordinates marked. Front of the map shows the whole lake and the back of the map has closeups of 4 areas of the lake. Map size is 23x35. Do a search for Lakemaster Map and you will find it.

Why not just get the Lakemaster ContourPro PC mapping software?You can then have Ottertail + many other maps right on your computer to print, download coords to your GPS I got it and I'm happy!I sent back the chip and got the CD because I can do more on the computer with it, and print out maps to take with, favorite coords are printed right on map.

get the navionics maps they are way more accurate! I've had both and sold my lakemaster on ebay cause it just didn't measure up!

No way that Navionics can be more accurate than Lakemaster for OT. The Navionics boat has been out on OT the last 2 yrs just trying to keep up..... grin.gif I've seen both chips and the Lakemaster is much more accurate for OT.

cabinboy, I know I'm just trying to protect my favorite spots haha. yes the navionics chip is rediculous. I had the new humingbird 997c and got rid of it for just that reason it does not accept lakemaster

      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
