A buddy and I fished Ottertail last night, and it was a beuatiful night. Finally no rain and very little breeze. Overcast, but still warm. The question I have is we caught fish in 33+ feet of water. This seemed a bit odd to me, and I was wondering if anyone else has seen this or was it some fluke thing? With the bad weather it would not surprise me at all if it was a fluke. Surface water temp was 60 degrees, and the lake was about dead calm. confused.gif

Thanks

Aint fish fun to understand?

Opening weekend several years ago, we got into a gaggle of walleyes in 35 to 45 ft of water in East Battle.

Crazy!

I fish that depth nearly year round on OT with good success. Did you get any numbers? Planned on avoiding it next weekend due to the reports I have heard.

That is good to hear about the shoe!! i will have to get out there. I have fished the Straight River many times and even managed to land a few on the fly rod. You should check out the hex hatch up there in the middle of june! Lund is still a little slow, but that leaves us more time for fishin'!!

      Water level is going down, but slowly.  My dock frame was 6" underwater last week and I can just see it above water today.  It's going to take time.

      My lil island front iron crib dock also under bout six inches. No Good! Lil higher than this time May 2008.  😮😮🥅🏒😮 No good to drop west dock for lifts as that would be under also n lift rails n pads be just but under water.  No Good! Marauder Boys miss the lake too. Happened before in my 26 years out there n will happen again so we just deal doing other stuff off lake n enjoy it all. Fun being a Shore Rat for shallow Crappies around home lakes. Bust a move n keep in the Grove. 🏒🥅🤩 We figure by anniversary June 12 th level drop enuff we sneek out in smaller Lund n fix up n open up? 🤩 Best of luck to ya but be safe. This lake is deeper n darker than you or I know…🤩 Big Smiles n Keep on Rocken! T    Did'nt intend to have pic so big....Geeezzz.

      We’re in the same boat. Actually I’d like to be in any boat. Our island cabin dock frame is about six inches under water. I hear that water is not rising which gives hope it will fall but I think Memorial Day is too optimistic, at least for us. You should think about other plans?

      looking to do some kayak bass fishing on Clearwater lake by Annandale. Are there any Other landings other than the one on the far south west end? Was wondering how the fishing is on the east end but that is a heck of a paddle. Appreciate any feedback.

      Water levels seems to be topic of the day. I'm visiting over Memorial Day week. Docks are not in on the island where I stay. Wondering if the water is going down? What do the rivers look like? Are they just pouring our water?? Is water level 6" lower than a few days ago?

      Finding plenty of fish around the area lately. Water on most of our area lakes and rivers is very high. Most of the panfish have moved from those back bay areas and are staging for the spawn. You can find the pannies tucked in the weeds right now close to those spawning beds. Casting small jigs without a float to pockets of vegetation or to outside the pencil reeds has been working well.
