Ottertail is the place to go if you want perch, but be prepared to do a lot of sorting. If you are in a pocket of small fish, just keep moving, sooner or later you'll find some bigger ones.

I was hoping to get out there this weekend, but family obligations won't allow.

Yup....I think OT is one of the better lakes within sane driving distances. There is alot of structure out there...gotta move, move, move..unless of course your sitting right over them. How often does that happen? I was lucky to find some good spots right away...and they usually hold up. Biggest perch last year was 13" not enormous but a nice fish none the less...and tasted great!

      Wow, I am certainly getting beat up over on this side of the fence today.  On month old posts and mostly by the mods oddly. ☹️

      Great story and nice fish! I too just put the boat away did a little river fishing but just to cold on the hands even with gloves. Ice season here we come!

      It is definitely getting down to the wire. I want to try and get out one more time if possible! I love ice fishing, but the fall bite has been hot.

      Be careful on public land traps tend to disappear. Don’t set the traps in the open and make another path to check your traps. With duck season going on use traps that will not hold dogs. I like setting banks with mink attractor or 220’s set in rat runs.

      I am looking to start a line this year since I travel 50 miles o e way for work. Looking for any advice and tips. I have some state land I would like to set on. Mostly mink and rats I believe are my targets. Thanks in advance

      Good pics have been hard to come by.  But...   Yes, these are water pics mainly but we’ve hunted fields too. The field hunting has been tough for us with the size of crew we have and the age mix.  Good times; good people.   Besides, a guy that likes divers needs a little water tossed in.  I saw my bucket list can but wouldn’t water swat him to claim him.  Didn’t get a chance at him on the wing.
