Night Bite on Ottertail

5 posts in this topic

As in my other post we are heading to ottertail this weekend. I have never night fished ottertail. Checking to see if it is worth a try or not. I really enjoy night fishing and would give ottertail a try if it is worth it.

Haven't been out real recently, but in past years there are "runs" of fish in between long pauses of little or no action. It can be worth it, but just like any fishing, it's hard to guarantee any consistent bite at night.

Good Luck,

MJ

MJ at night do you head into the shallower flats or same day spots?

It varies. I've had mixed results. If my permanent house is on a break, it's usually not on top or bottom, but on the side of the break. I will then fish around it, outside on the shallow side at night and the deep side of it otherwise. Even though I have a hardside that stays on the lake, I often "troll" around it. The fish typically are on the move. I'm not being very specific here because if I told you one thing, the fish would do the other. crazy.gif

I guess what I'm saying is that when you find good structure fish all aspects of it and good luck!

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
