Otsego river fishing

Recommended Posts

ps70mlf

I live about 1/4 mile from the mississippi river in otsego. i have been fishing it for a good 6 years. Now that i am 16 i have been fishign it just about every day in the summer. I usally have the best luck in catching carp and suckers, but many northerns, bass and walleys show themselfs too. For walleyes,bass,and northernns 2-4inch mister twister grups in a chartruse or white work the best. I fish off shore in many spots but the best presantation is casting and reeling. During the hot summer nights me and my freinds love to cat fish. A simple 4 ounce pyrimid sinker and a number 6 circle hook with a nice fat frog with do the trick. Its nothing to go down ot my secret spot and catch a good dozen cats ranging from 5-10 lbs a night. The river is one of the best places to fish in my book. its also one of the simplests

PS70 - welcome to the website! It's awesome and full of tons of great info.

I love fishing for smallies (not so big on cats...) and I hope to learn the Otsego area this summer. I got a pair of waders and have been to Monticello a couple of times and want to start working my way downriver towards otsego & Elk River.

Man, I wish I could be your age again and fish all day, everyday, in the summer! Life must be real rough. just teasing... kinda wink.gif

I have been fishing the Elk River/Otsego/Monticello area of the river for many years now. I love the smallie action as well as the cats. Hopefully we can hook up sometime on the river. I have a 14ft jon boat with The Riverbasher painted on the sides. Say hi to me if ya see me

Welcome ps70mlf!! Great place to live and a great time to be alive!!

Are the pyramid sinkers a frog-specific rig for you? I've often wondered what the advantage is to the pyramids.

I use pyrmid sinkers no matter what bait im using , i prefer them because they hold great and they dont snag up at all. around here i fish in strong current and need the holding power

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      Really small scallops

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.

      Couple boat  trailers sitting on 22 access this afternoon. Everyones getting the itch 
    • smurfy
      Yeah and if that's the case bring your own water for the boat to sit in. I've seen nest on a normal opener!!

      The cheeks could be good sushi if you like the texture. Too chewy for my taste. Now I just pop them in the frying pan for about 10 seconds for a tasty appetizer
