I normally dont fish ottertail that much in the summer but i think im gonna be going up there for some more walleye fishing this summer. Are there any better spots to get some walleyes other then the Amor flats? Thats like all me and my friends go to. So i was just wondering if there were any better spots then that.

There are MANY places to catch summertime walleyes on ottertail other than amor flats. If you have a good locator go out and scout the humps, bumps and bars, there are hundreds of pieces of fish holding structure, just keep moving till you find fish. Key on 20 to 35 feet on sunny days, shallower on cloudy or a bit windy days..Happy hunting! Paul

Hey Juice -

Don't overlook the the night trolling later on in the shallows. Pulling raps can be a lot of fun and get you into some nicer fish.

Like Paul said, there are HUNDREDS of spots to try. I mostly fish it in the winter, and I still have about 50 waypoint in my GPS that I have not even tried yet.

T-Bone and WallEYES fish it quite a bit in the summer and could give you some tips.

The Warden and I are taking the yard-ape to the Carnival at the school on Friday. Are you working that? If so, I can show you some good spots on the map.

Hey thanks for those suggestions! Paul ill try finding those things this summer if i can convince my friends to do it. :S

Yea Gissert i'll be at the U-town carnival, probably not til 7 or 8 since i got a baseball game that day. But ill try to find ya.

ChuckN- Yea i can show you some great action for bass on one of my lakes. One lake in particular has bass ranging from 1-4lbs that bite like mad. Practically anything you throw out they hammer. Or in my other lake, the one gissert usually fishes, you can catch a decent poundage of bass at nite (on topwater) and northerns in the day time.

WallEYES- Yea ill have to go out with you guys on OT. Cuz trollin the flats kinda gets old..:S Yea my grandpa is into reading books. Pretty educated guy. But thanks for the replies and ill have to try them out.

Just one thing, if your catching fish why change? just to see some new scenery? I know the feeling, explore new tactics etc. But if your catching its sure tough to change and walk away from a known producer...Happy hunting! Paul

The only reason why im changing is that i know theres fish there. I just wanna try out new methods and new parts of the lake. Theres no better way to get better, without try new things. And if nothing produces i still have the spot i know. smile.gif

my dad is heading up to ottertail tomorrow to look at some lots for building a cabin

i have not fished ottertail but heard it is a good lake particularly first ice and spring

just wondering what the fishing is like in the heat of the summer

is the action constistant throughout the summer
i also saw how deep the lake is and was wondering if those eyes just go deep in the summer and suspend over the deep water
if this happens they would be hard to find for me atleast

your comments would be appreciated

Thanks for the clarification.

That is the same area we will probably be on the opener. If the warm weather continues the bite should be good and the shiners running.

Anyone heard how the accesses are on Otter Tail with the water down?

      We also ran into Fisky on the lake as well as at the weigh-in. He is a fun guy to share a boat seat with.....and catches lots of fish big and small. We had a 30 1/4 fairly early but struggled to find 18 - 19 inchers. Or 16 or 17's. We had 1 18 and finally kept two 14 1/2's as the day wound down.  Not getting nice unders was really unexpected. But color us very happy with the results. Good luck

      If Minn Kota doesn’t supply them any longer, you should search the typical on line sales sites in case someone is advertising new old stock parts. I have a 55lb Maxxum on my fishing boat that needs a new armature.  MK doesn’t sell them anymore either.  I did find some new lower units available and some armatures.  I don’t have the serial number sticker on my TM anymore to know for sure what armature to get so I took mine to an electric motor shop to be rewound.  The cost is about the same as a new lower unit though. I might just as well get the lower unit with new seals and such but it is really a wash on price and everything else is in good shape. Check more resources if you haven’t already is my advice.  Good luck.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.
