FISHING OTTERTAIL THIS WEEKEND

Recommended Posts

stellarfisher

I was up on OT last weekend, fished Sat, Sun, and Mon. Caught perch until your hands fell off, took my girlfreind she didnt have to wait once for longer than 30 seconds to get a bite. Most of them were pretty small did manage about 15 over 10" but none that were 11". Not huge but no too bad for OT. Caught about 10 walleyes too, kept three of them the rest were fairly small. Dont know where to get the big ones. Anyway I am heading up again this weekend to fish all day Sat, and Sun. Anybody else gonna be around maybe we can locate some of those bigger eyes if we work together.

Sadly I haven't made it out on OT yet this year but I'll be up this weekend. I'll be fishing other area lakes most of the weekend but I'll most likely be on OT Sunday late morning/afternoon and possibly Saturday afternoon. I'll be in a black Grand Cherokee with a purple Otter. I'll probably be heading out of the Riviera access but who knows where I'll be fishing. Feel free to stop by and say hi...hopefully we can find some nice eyes!

Well I will be in either a Red Avalanche or a Red Ranger, with a X2. I do fish out of the Rivera access sometimes and if I dont get anything elsewhere maybe I will head that way. Im Adam by the way.

It was a pretty good weekend to end the walleye season on. I ended up getting my limit of Walleyes and my limit of Perch, not all from the same holes though. I drilled over 50 holes on Saturday, so I put in the effort to get the reward. I only had 3 or 4 perch late in the afternoon but I kept on trying til I hit the spot with bigger perch, then I found the Mother Load of 8-10 inchers.

How'd everyone else do?

We fished Sunday in the fog with about the same perch results and a few smallish eyes mixed in...Absolutely hammered nice tullibees for the smoker which was a blast on the light gear...We got three trucks stuck multiple times in the deep crusted snow...Wasted a good part of the midday period...We all got nice sunburns as well...Couldn't ask for a nicer day to end the season.

Didn't fish OT, but had a great time fishing eyes. The fish were aggressive and biting late into the morning with all the fog yesterday. Incredible weather! Afternoon wasted due to getting stuck and trying to get off the lake..

Did I miss much last evening jerky? sleep.gif

I fished Sunday afternoon for a few hours and got one a shade over 20 inches. I later dropped the camera down and saw 3 more swim by but I think they were scared of the camera. I also got stuck in the crusted snow once...it didn't help that I was pulling a trailer. It turned into another perfect day though. We couldn't have asked for much better of a weekend weather wise!

Tough bite this morning. Tried to [jerk-bait] some perch. Found perch, but they were ultra tiny. Fished anywhere from 30 fow up to 6. We'll try to get out again this weekend and try some different spots. Moving around wasn't impossible, but was a task with all of the hard packed snow. Drove over some drifts, but slugged through most of them with a full-sized truck.

Here's hoping warm weather is soon near to burn off some of the snow.

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.  
    • TomWehler
      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
