i am going to ottertail for the first time and thought maybe someone could give me some info about it. reports show they've been in 14-24' and on the 34' humps, is that true?

I went out last night with my roomate from 5 to 8. We fished 12 ft of water off the riveria access. WE caught 1 walleye. It measured out at 20 inches. Shiner and a plain hook.

i guess that's something. we'll be staying at thumper pond so i'll be going out of the public access on the NE side. I'll just have to give it a honest try.

Good luck. You should find some action if you're on the move a litte, Blanch. The mid morning perch bite can be good at times, especially if the sun is shining.

I just returned from OT this morning. Saturday the perch were there but not very aggressive. My wife and I got 15 of them. This morning we went out and couldn't keep the bobber in the water. We had our limit in about 2 hours. The NE access is heaved up, so we had to go around to Riviera and went out about 1.7 miles to the other side.

Glad you were able to find some fish. I went on the lake at the Riveria Access, but came off at Pelican Bay. It's packed down pretty nicely now. It's bumpy, but navigable. Fishing wasn't too bad either considering we didn't get set up until 5:00 Sunday evening.

I was satisfied enough with our catch that I might head back this weekend. I was just wondering if you picked up any walleyes in the evening. We left the lake by 4:00 so I didn't get a chance to find out.

We found walleyes, weeded through some small ones, and managed to keep a few for the pan. Didn't keep any perch.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
