Otsego WMA-Rice lake

6 posts in this topic

I saw this on the dnr rec compass, went for a drive looking for it, but could not find it. The way it looked on the rec compass, I thought it would be easy but it wasn't.

Has anyone been to this WMA? If so, could you help me with the directions?

Thanks in advance

Ole

You won't be hunting that spot very long before the CO, or Wright County Sheriff shows up. It is against city ordinance to hunt/discharge a firearm in the eastern part of the city.That land is in close proximity to new developments that are going in, so complaints will get called in.Any questions- call Otsego City Hall, or the Wright County Sheriff's Office.And yes, I do live in that area, but not where the WMA is.

I wouldn't have hunted it if that's the case. Not all WMA's are open to public hunting and I do know that, but thank you for the info.

If you go into the recreation compass and click on info then click on the rice lake wma it says you can still hunt it. That info might be old but i would be suprised if you couldent hunt that wma, i hunt another spot only about 3 miles away and its legal.

Thanks Roosterslayer,

I should have known better than to just listen to someone and not talk to the CO, I'll call the local CO and find out for sure. If you can hunt in the WMA, I'll have to go check it out just because huskydevil is telling people to stay away.

I think I know the spot you are hunting, have you been duck hunting there?

Thanks again

Ole

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff
