Otter Lake

Recommended Posts

For the heck of it I took the boat over to Otter Lake today. Dragged a Silver Minnow around for a bit and dunked a waxie on an ice fly. Never even saw a fish. Water is clear but at least 75% of the lake is weeds nearly to the top already. Interesting but I don't think I'll bother again.

I was there the next day, and even with my little boat i had to have the motor trimmed up the whole time. Early ice out didn't help, but even then you only have a 2 week window after opener before the weeds are too bad. Watched several large boats launch, only to head right back in when they couldn't get away from the weeds. I purposely picked otter because i knew it wouldn't be busu. Caught 6 hammer handles, and lost a few more.
