lindys and spinners on OT

Recommended Posts

Guest

i'm on a trip to ottertail and i was wondering what kinds of spinners/lindys (ie color, brand, features, and size/shape) i should use to rake in the pike or walleye.
I'd also like to know any awesome spots you've found we've got a gps so coordinates will work or give me directions from HI-VISTA.

thanks!!!

6ft Silver spinners with blue beeds and small blue hooks. shinners and small fathead minnows seemed to work best.

I haven't fished Ottertail in a week, but the last time I was out we fished some of the deeper humps. Just about all of them had fish on them, but it wasn't until the fifth spot that we got some to bite. Last week the hot bait was crawlers on a six foot lindy. This weekend who knows. Hope to make it out there Saturday pm. I have to stop at my moms, seems she has a list of things that need to be done at the cabin. Hope it is a short one so that I can get some time on the water.

Just about forgot. You know there is a slot on Ottertail for Pike? If you want pike go just west of the Amor Park point. There is a nice cabbage bed that lies in about 15-16 feet of water. Last year it was loaded with toothies. Chartruese (sp) bead on the lindy with #6 red hooks works best for me.

yep, I caught an 8 pounder, right about there a couple years ago, along with some smaller ones, 8 pounds aint REAL huge, but its the biggest I've caught so far, so it was fun.

      Ace, honest question here with no intent to debate, just learning more about muskies. What surface temps do you consider to be too warm for handling muskies?

      What are your guys favorite presentations this time of year? When I come up I've mostly rigged.

      Thanks Brian, the ratchet straps worked great.... quick, easy and secured it tight. I bought a bunch of big zip ties that it looks like I'll never use😀.

      CigarGuy, cool pic. Looks like a good time/place for a cigar. lol. As far as securing your dock sections, some folks use bailing wire.  That’s what I use. Heading down in a few minutes to secure mine before the next storm takes sections away. Man, the water is high!

      Just got up here. Road construction sucks.....four hour trip took almost 5 hours.  Thanks Del, back end of the boat was out of the water last weekend. Do you guys use zip ties to secure the dock boards, big rocks or ?...…any good ideas?  This was supposed to have been posted last night.  A couple of ratchet straps and I'm golden. Molly the dog is helping me watch my bobber 😀 Two eagles and 5 loons, no fish!!

      Fished Big Pine Lake today. Original plan was to fish the Kettle River, but the rain took care of that. I had fished big pine from shore, below the dam, years back and done well, but this was the first time I’ve ever taken a boat out there. Nice lake...looked to be about 2 feet high. Didn’t catch anything until about dinner time, when crappies started chasing schools of minnows on the west shoreline. Caught about 50 of them. I just happened to have a small twister tail that was almost an exact replica of the bait they were chasing, and that was the difference maker. My dad caught a decent pike that went after a little crappie he was reeling in. Was disappointed we didn’t find any bass, but I’d come back here again.

      Saw one up Norwegian bay tonight with like 10 basketball size rocks.   Never had to do anything with my old dock since height was adjustable so got no advice there. Posted 3 pictures to be sure I got the right place.  Bits are (nearly) free
