      Minnesota Fishing Report Clubs - ONLY 20 FREE MEMBERSHIPS Per Area - Join Today - FREE   03/08/2018

      Fishing Minnesota has added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. Initially we are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20 members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want see detailed fishing reports/tips  around your area and will share your detailed fishing report as soon as you join, then Join Now! Some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

I usually fish Ottertail in late July. I work a lot of the mid-lake humps that rise out of the deep water and top off anywhere from 18 feet to 30 feet. This lake has incredible structure. I typically will drift or troll over these humps with a lindy rig / leech combination.

For the pike I will troll a shad rap on the deep side of the weed edges. This is usually 8 - 13 feet of water. I have had pretty good luck doing this. You might even get into the walleye with this. I would also try this same presentation at night for walleye. I have with limited success, but I have heard from quite a few people that have had real good success doing this.

Hopes this helped a little bit. Good Luck.

Hey were headed out there this weekend. Most likely going to try leeches on a lindy rig with a plain hook. We've always had good luck around this time of year.. We fish in depths between 18-24 feet early in the morning. Once the sun is over the trees Its time to head out...
