Ottertail Reports?

Recommended Posts

Thinking of fishing OT on Sunday, anyone been out? Is it so good no ones talking? Haven't seen any posts from Chuck so they must be biting.

I fished OT all weekend, long days in the boat. Fishing was good Friday and Saturday, and yesterday was a terrible bite. I watched some of the MWT weigh-in and a lot blanks and/or 1-2 fish brought into the scales by teams.

Did you make it out, jerkin? You picked the wrong day if you did. grin.gif I didn't see your boat out there....

Chuck I saw you out there but I was in the "Stealth" boat. I followed you from where 16 and 5 meet all the way to Tank and Tummy. Dumped in right behind you at about six thirty or so. We fished out there until about the third tournament boat crashed in on top of us, got sick of it and left for a smaller lake. Caught three walleyes on OT in about an hour. Very tough bite. The smaller lake we fished treated us better.

Really... Next time say hi! grin.gif

If you got 3 walleyes right away you were on a good spot. The bite was pretty much, well, no bite. smile.gif I hit lots of spots and could see the fish on the graphs, but only one fish cooperated all day! Not the case the day before, the day before that, etc...

Chuck looks like I should have entered that tourney, my 3 would have been worth about 500 bucks. Wouldn't have been bad for an hours work! We should compare spots on OT sometime. (IF you have some worthy ones)

Yeah, I'll share spots! All mine were hot until Sunday when the walleyes stopped biting! That's good because one of my hottest spots was filled with eyes on the camera and MWT guys parked on it all day waiting for them to bite. More for me another day!! grin.gif

      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.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.

      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
