NEXT CLUB MEETING: TUESDAY, AUGUST 19TH 7PM COLBURN TOWN HALL
Saturday, July 19th
From President Fritz: I want to personally thank everyone that took time out of their schedule today to help set up. Without the help of all of you this dinner could not take place.
Lake Report: 7/7/14 Just wanted to report that everything I have heard has been positive as far as catches this summer. Sorry for the delay in this report. Every week I have heard of good catches of pan fish and even some really nice walleyes. Good Luck!
SEE YOU ALL AT THE CHICKEN DINNER SUNDAY JULY 20TH
5/14/14 Windy & cool again today but stuck it out and was rewarded for patience. Nice mess of gils & a few nice crappies, mostly males. Gils 8" to 9.5" Crappies 9" to 11". Worms & Waxies. Drift seemed to fast for crappies on minnows. All in all another great day on Otter. Tight Lines & Good Luck.
Watch here for photos of the netting by the DNR
LAKE SURVEY REPORT FROM PRESIDENT FRITZ
I received a e mail from DNR Warden John Scheiber last week stating that the DNR was going to start to net the lake. They set out 10 nets on the lake from the North end to the South end and started their count. Don Weggen and I were at the South landing yesterday (Saturday) and watched them count fish out of a couple of the nets. The guys from the DNR were pulling the last three nets Saturday morning, and were going to shock the lake last night (Saturday). We understand they shocked up into Otter Creek also. We saw some really nice fish and the guys said that the fish in the lake are in really good shape. We will keep in contact with them and get a full report when it is completed. We took photos (I should say my grand son) and will get them downloaded so we can get them on the web site. Blue gills are averaging about 7", there is about 1 walleye per acre or maybe a little less, crappies were all on the small size.
Creel counts will be done all through the year to increase the accuracy of the survey.
Any questions give me a call.
We generated a mailing recently to let folks know about our Club. A big THANK YOU goes out to everyone that has sent their 2013-2014 membership and/or any donation to Diane. We love having you all onboard and really appreciate the donations.

2014 Free Youth Ice Fishing Contest Poster [Click Here]
Our turnout was down a little but those that were there had a great time. I believe we registered 82 youth and sold some 140 hot dogs & a bunch of hot chocolate. Everyone braved the cold weather & some wind off and on but when the sun came out it was very bearable. We had 2 50-50 Raffle winners & a very happy door-prize winner. Thank You to everyone that attended and we hope to see you next year.
