Recommended Posts

deacon

Looking to get a lake chip this year for graph. Does anyone have an opinion on what chip is best for Otter Tail Lake and Otter Tail County? thanks

Lakemaster Minnesota has OT on it and it works fine for me.

We have Navionics Premium North, and it is pretty good. But we have heard good things about Lakemaster MN, so we are going to compare and if it might be worth getting that.

I know Navionics has Pelican, OT, Battle and other bigger lakes, but our year is missing some of the smaller ones, and Lakemaster might have more lakes.

The new navionics has a lot more lakes than the lakemaster but they are just DNR maps put into the digital chips. The lakemasters i have found are a little more accuarate on the lakes it has. Lakemaster also has OT and Pelican and some other ones, im not sure what ones but you can look on thier site to find what lakes are on the new chips.

Holy smokes is the Lakemaster awesome on OT.

I have ice fished with Gissert and his LM chip a couple times on OT, and that Lakemaster is just out of this world.

LakeMaster is my choice. Incredible. Almost feel guilty using it.

Hey Banana Boy,

The chip doesn't show you where the fish are, unless you have ego-inflated chip I wasn't aware of. wink.giftongue.gif

Had not checked the post and saw 22 responses, awesome I thought until I got to about #6 and the tread was hijacked by dem dar dirty minded menn.

Looks like Lakemaster is the way to go. Any other input would be greatly appreciated since it appears there are new chips out this year.

Ah, the Jerky and ChuckN show, LOL. It is even better in person.

You will not regret the Lakemaster chit for OTL. I have a lot of hours using mine on the ice, and have been very satisfied.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

        Nice fish , great pics ,, what times of the day were best for you ?

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?
    • Billy G
      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore. 
    • sartellangler05
      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?
