If you get out in the lake a ways off the Pelican Bay access, look for the Otter Tail water tower. Go due west for 1/4 mile, and the tower will line up with a HUGE cottonwood tree by the OT river entrance off Hwy 1. Follow that line until you are straight out from the Pier, find 14-22 feet of water and start drillin'. You'll get at least 1 walleye and probably an eeelpout or 2.

If you don't find that spot grin.gif, get a map and look for mid lake humps. I've caught walleyes in 8 ft. all the way to 27 ft. lately.

Good Luck!

MJ,

How have you been doing on OT? Is it worth me coming out and having you guide me for a day some weekend pretty soon? If this does happen, I'd appreciate it if you could 1) keep my holes free from ice, 2) take my fish off for me, and 3) bait my hook. That's not too much to ask for from a buddy, is it? grin.gif

Seriously, is it worth a trip out in the semi-near future? Don't know for sure if I can swing it, but if you tell me yes I can find out sure as heck.

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      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.

      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.
