I fish the east side, but not the shorline break. I prefer midlake humps and reefs...check out those that drop in to the 40 ft range, fish it from there up to the med 20's, you wont be dissapointed. Pop some holes and find the fish..dont wait for them to come to you. Good luck.

I recommend you get out there and try the East end instead of looking for info, start looking for fish and you will find what you are after. Fish deeper than you would ever think of fishing. Either end of the lake will do, just start looking.

It's a good thing I'm not asking for info, what a harsh response

I don't think it is a harsh reply. A lake like OT is so full of fishy structure it is impossible to not find fish if you put in a little time (very little usually) The only way a person becomes a better fisherman and one that doesn't follow the crowd is to practice and experiment. It drives me crazy to see people learn by parking on top of someone else to find a spot. Is that how you find your fish dodgeman?

If you don't like catching the small eyes than you should probably try another lake. Otter is full of small eyes w/not a ton of big fish. You said you fish almost every day so I assume you have a little time on your hands. I would try Rush, it is smaller w/ a better average size, otherwise be prepared to weed through some small ones on OT. It sounds like you have your house a little shallow on OT, try the mid 30 foot depths.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..

      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.
