otisco 8/28

Recommended Posts

Got out this morning from 630-1030 with matt bubba and Matt's son Dallas. I didnt have high expectations with what i heard from the last few days, but was pleasantly surprised to have a solid bite on the same pattern as 2 weeks ago. We went 3-4 on eyes 4 smb a low 30's tiger and had about 8 good shots that we couldnt stick. Fish were 23-27" and all came between 23-25 feet down over 50+ 2.5 to 2.8 GPS speed after 730am. Here is a pic of the biggest one a 7.5 pounder. Ill try to put up some more pics.

Wow nice job.  I have been blanked my last 3 trips out with 2 morning trips and a dusk trip this past monday.  Marked a ton of fish along the drop- offs along the East shore from 38'- 44' but haven't had a single hit trolling about 2.5- 3 mph gps speed.  Looks like sunday I'll have to push out a little deeper. One thing I do know about this lake is to be persistent even if you have a bunch of slow outings.  I am running a 6' leader of 15# fluoro- coated P Line off of braided main line but can't see the fish being line shy with the water being the color it is?  I was complaining about only smallmouths a few weeks ago and now would gladly hook up with them all morning long!

In my last 9 3-4 hour trips we have gotten at least 1 eye in 8 of them. Not that that is good fishing, but not bad for daylight here. Im running a lot more lines and have a lot of time in trolling Otisco.

Not so good this morning!!! I decided to fish 8-12 today as the bite picked up yesterday later in the morning, not to mention the fact we smoked a pork loin and drank beer all day yesterday into the night so we all were a bit happy to sleep in! It was all smallmouth bass today and none of em real big. It was slow enough and weed free enough we ran 15 lines without an eye. Tomorrow its back to an early start if we dont night fish tonight.

      The heavy rain here has the lake over the docks and lots of debris.  In addition to that heavy weedcutting efforts this week have massive weed mats floating in many areas.  To top it off bait action and subsequent predatory action was shut down last night from what I saw.  Tiger fishing is still good though.  If you are looking for walleye I'd wait a few days.

    • Otisco lake spreading invasives

      Weedcutting efforts are at an all time high here on Otisco.  We haven't had a single week without some cutting, and it's more like ripping this year as there are roots and zebra mussels in the weed mats.  I can't help but wonder how long before every body of water down stream from here has both invasive weeds and zebra mussels.  With the lake being over the dam all season every bit of the cutting goes over the dam every time flow is up or wind is out of the south.  Hard to believe there is no DE

      Well the water hasn't warmed much,52 sat afternoon, but overall things are shaping up.   Walleye We are just starting to catch casting at night in several locations.  Bait is just starting to show up so things will continue to improve.  Weeds aren't a factor yet, but will be in couple weeks.  Daytime trolling is also producing on shelves in 15-20 fow.  It's a tough troll unless you have an accurate map and boards are the play.  I boated 7 and released 5 between casting and trollin

      The tiger musky bite is as good as I've seen it right now and the weeds are still below the surface enough to fish over them trolling or casting.  Anyone looking to catch tigers it's a great time to give it a go!  Mix it up between floaters and suspended lures until you figure out which they prefer.  Same goes with speed.  There are numbers and some size if you pick thru them.  Usually fast is how we think of fishing them, but I had excellent results going extremely slow on a couple recent outin
