Ottertail crappie

Recommended Posts

floating minnow

Hey fellow anglers,I am thinking of driving up this weekend to open up our place on Ottertail.I have never been up before opener and was wondering if anyone ever fishes the lake for crappies in the spring.I catch a few very nice ones in the summer but would not have a clue in the spring.Also,I would like to work on my bird and waterfowl photography,any suggestions on places that might offer a variety in the spring.

Thanks
Bruce

floating minnow -

Sorry, I can't help you on the crappies on OTL. Paul R. will probably know where they are. I bet there are some dandies in there. My dad used to catch some great crappies in Walker lake, however.

As far at the photography goes, float the stretch of river between the outlet and Deer Lake. Lots of ducks and geese using that area. If you feel like taking a drive, head out south and west of Fergus. There are lots of cattail swamps and waterfowl production areas close to roads that have lots of birds and waterfowl in full plumage this time of year. Drive along the gravel roads, and you will find some good spots, especially if you have a good telephoto lens.
