Chev-- Welcome to FishingMinnesota and Iceleaders! Great to have you with us. If you look in the regional forums. There is one called East Central lakes. Most questions regarding that lake are posted in that forum and if you search there you will find quite a bit of information on that lake.

You should be able to get into fish all daylight. Caught some Crappies between 2pm to 7pm. Nothing too big. Average with largest being 10".

We've been catching Crappies in 10fow or shallower. On the deeper pools the LX3 picks up a ton of fish but very finiky. Small Crappie minnows was the key for us.

Any reports on crappies, any decent sized ones coming out yet? Are they deep or can you still catch them shallow? Havent been up in a while would like to make a trip out there soon. Or am i better off goin to Chisago?

      Thanks for having me Minnesota. I wasn't able to float the Ottertail river but I did fish the lake every morning. Most fish the first 3 days came on top water whopper plopper. The last day, the water temperature heated up to almost 80 so I changed it up a little bit and fished deep water 10-20 feet and caught fish deep. Here's some of the better fish from this week. The fishing up here is great. Can't wait to make it back.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow
