FISHING OTTERTAIL THIS WEEKEND

9 posts in this topic

I was up on OT last weekend, fished Sat, Sun, and Mon. Caught perch until your hands fell off, took my girlfreind she didnt have to wait once for longer than 30 seconds to get a bite. Most of them were pretty small did manage about 15 over 10" but none that were 11". Not huge but no too bad for OT. Caught about 10 walleyes too, kept three of them the rest were fairly small. Dont know where to get the big ones. Anyway I am heading up again this weekend to fish all day Sat, and Sun. Anybody else gonna be around maybe we can locate some of those bigger eyes if we work together.

Sadly I haven't made it out on OT yet this year but I'll be up this weekend. I'll be fishing other area lakes most of the weekend but I'll most likely be on OT Sunday late morning/afternoon and possibly Saturday afternoon. I'll be in a black Grand Cherokee with a purple Otter. I'll probably be heading out of the Riviera access but who knows where I'll be fishing. Feel free to stop by and say hi...hopefully we can find some nice eyes!

Well I will be in either a Red Avalanche or a Red Ranger, with a X2. I do fish out of the Rivera access sometimes and if I dont get anything elsewhere maybe I will head that way. Im Adam by the way.

It was a pretty good weekend to end the walleye season on. I ended up getting my limit of Walleyes and my limit of Perch, not all from the same holes though. I drilled over 50 holes on Saturday, so I put in the effort to get the reward. I only had 3 or 4 perch late in the afternoon but I kept on trying til I hit the spot with bigger perch, then I found the Mother Load of 8-10 inchers.

How'd everyone else do?

We fished Sunday in the fog with about the same perch results and a few smallish eyes mixed in...Absolutely hammered nice tullibees for the smoker which was a blast on the light gear...We got three trucks stuck multiple times in the deep crusted snow...Wasted a good part of the midday period...We all got nice sunburns as well...Couldn't ask for a nicer day to end the season.

Didn't fish OT, but had a great time fishing eyes. The fish were aggressive and biting late into the morning with all the fog yesterday. Incredible weather! Afternoon wasted due to getting stuck and trying to get off the lake..

Did I miss much last evening jerky? sleep.gif

I fished Sunday afternoon for a few hours and got one a shade over 20 inches. I later dropped the camera down and saw 3 more swim by but I think they were scared of the camera. I also got stuck in the crusted snow once...it didn't help that I was pulling a trailer. It turned into another perfect day though. We couldn't have asked for much better of a weekend weather wise!

Tough bite this morning. Tried to [jerk-bait] some perch. Found perch, but they were ultra tiny. Fished anywhere from 30 fow up to 6. We'll try to get out again this weekend and try some different spots. Moving around wasn't impossible, but was a task with all of the hard packed snow. Drove over some drifts, but slugged through most of them with a full-sized truck.

Here's hoping warm weather is soon near to burn off some of the snow.

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.
