The wife and kids and I will be up for a two week stay on Spirit Lake just outside of Vergas 7/12-26.It's been 2 years sice we've been to beautiful Ottertail/Becker counties due to the wifes battle w/cancer (she's doing well enough to go fishing again) Was just wondering how the fishings been lately. We also enjoy fishing McDonald,West Silent,Star & Round lakes. Any info on where to find crappie, walleye, gills & bass ( depths,structure, baits ) will help in making this long awaited trip successful.
Thanks in advance for any tips. Tom

Tom,

Just came home from Star this afternoon. The fishing has been incredible. We caught plenty of walleye, and some nice gills to boot. The walleyes are around 14-20ft. off bars and flats. Use a lindy rig, plain hook, 6ft. snell, and a leech. Worked great. Bluegills are all over the lake in the weedbeds of 12-14ft. just off of the big weed beds. Hope this is of some help to you. I'm glad to hear your wife is doing better. I hope your trip is a success and you enjoy your time together.

Good Luck,
Rusty

I was on Otter Tail this holiday weekend and did alright. During the day was tough, but late afternoon was great. I ended up releasing a 25 inch, 23 inch, and 4: 12-14 inchers. I fished the weedline with leeches. HOW DID EVERYONE DO DURING THE 4TH? WHAT DEPTH DID YOU CATCH EM IN THE DAY?

Fished Big McDonald a week ago (the 29th); you can always get into the sunfish there. Just go out from the ramp along the western shore, find the weeds, and anywhere from 6 or 7 to about 14 feet you can find 'em (move in/out if you're not catching 'em quickly, or catching big ones). You'll throw back three or four little ones for every keeper...but there are some nice ones to be had.
You can also troll along the weedlines and pick up some northerns...I caught a couple (pretty small, though) on a spinnerbait doing that.
