Otter Lake

5 posts in this topic

I'm thinking of going out and fishing for some northerns. Has anyone hit otter? Has the lake winterkilled lately? Just trying to figure out if it'll be worth my time or if I should try somewhere else. Thanks for any info.

I drove past today and there was no one out at all. You can see very clearly where people have driven.

There are a good number of 13" pike out there with the odd bigger fish, but the ratio isn't good. I keep thinking that some day they're going to grow up - never seems to happen, but I've taken the kids out there in the summer to fight a few hammer handles!

It used to be an excellent pike lake in the winter. You can still catch a good sized fish. The action with the smaller fish can keep the boredom from setting in. At times I use just fathead minnows because at $9(suckers)a dozen you can go through some $$$.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
