Some great timely replies regarding our future June trip to OT. This message board is really a neat deal!

Anyway, with all of the lakes in the area, where does a dad take his son so that he can catch his first eye? He doesn't know it yet, but if he gets into 'em, he's in for a real treat!

Thanks in advance for the replies!

Peace,

Castaway

Otter Tail or Lida would be my two choices. Actually, Otter Tail. You may not get any huge ones, but certainly should get some fish. Jigs and shinners in anywhere from 15-25 feet of water is what has worked for me in June.

Thanks Hammer 'em! I will make note. I have really heard some great things about OT, but do not know much of Lida. My son (16) gets more excited each day that draws the time nearer. I really look forward to it being a memorable experience for the both of us.

You know what...I'll do something I never do, but I'll give you 1 gps spot on OT that usually never fails for me. Do you have a GPS?? Otherwise hit the mid lake flats and keep movin til you find fish. Once you find them, they will likely bite!

I do not have a gps, but given the nature of the fish, and finding structure, I am confident in finding them, getting them to bite is another story. I am appreciative of your kind consideration! Favorite spots are like a man's gold...hard to share!

Peace,

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.

      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..
