Best place in the world?

14 posts in this topic

Is otter tail county the best place to live in the whole entire world?

Since opener I have fished on 8 different lakes and three of those there has been a 26" or bigger walleye caught and subsequently released. 2 out of the 3 were caught from shore... How many counties in Mn can you do that in???

My vote is for Otter tail county as the best in all the state. Yes there are better lakes out there in different counties but not as many quality lakes. Or maybe I'm just living the dream....

Good Luck to all that come up and use this wonderfull resource, but be careful there are a lot of us locals that really enjoy it so don't abuse it... We will be watching...

I don't want to start anything but from what i've seen you better keep a close eye on the local boys too..Some of them enjoy it a little excessively....

Right you are Jerkin'm, sadly right you are. I still think that there is more people that really love to enjoy this area than the ones out there just to abuse it.

My point was that I like many others around here enjoy our resources. I appoligize for putting anyone that "comes up" into a bad group of violators. As far as you witnessing this, then turn them in! TIP

I agree with everyone enjoying it as well...Saw a little behavior that I hadn't seen in years...Pulled out of the Pelican access on OT last night...what do I see in the water? Dozens of sunfish and bass carcasses chucked in the water right next to shore...HUGE sunfish too...Also saw the wardens at the access with spotting scopes in the afternoon.. grin.gif

Are you kidding me? Otter Tail is way over rated. Too many mush water lakes, too many prople fighting to take your spot, and too little fish to be caught....just kidding. PRFISHER, if only the beauty of the area was enough to keep you out of trouble, it has to be awesome.

OT is a great place, except too many people on the weekend, enjoy fishing on weekdays much more.

The only reason I go to OT cty is to remember how good I have it now that I moved away. Nothing but bad memories and empty cans. Stay away, and don't waste your time!

This makes me think about how someone will post a good bite on a lake, and it completely flipflops in the next 2 years. So don't bother coming up to this little slice of heav... I mean, dump at all!

We will be on your pond Friday night.... End of the year fishing contest and party...

I'm guessing the party will be pretty good, you will probably hear us.

All city rummage sale sat.(City?) and the war department says I have to help. Saturday and Sunday nights I will be out somewhere. Going to get out tonight if the rain holds off. How about you? Have you been out at all?

I was out yesterday morning, and Monday evening. Frankly, it was dang lousy. It was showing some signs of improvement yesteday afternoon.

      Don't go giving too much notice there Royce!    Been kinda wondering if a yakking GTG would pop up some day.  Would be a great time to share a paddle and see how others rig their gear for fishing, or whatever.  And maybe do some demo paddling in other kinds of yaks than what we're paddling now.   Now, who might be able to put something like that together??

      anybody up for a float from sartell to sauk rapids?   smallies should be great.

      I heard Casey retired and sold his boat.

      Gills should be on or real close to beds. Crappies are on beds on some lakes, done spawning on others. Btw, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

      It was on the opener last year.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Welcome to our Forum Muzzy!  You may want to consider hiring a guide for a day or even 1/2 day to start your trip.  They can give you a lot of good information that will help you put fish in the boat for the rest of your trip.

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow
