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!

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
