We launched from Bertrand at about 7:00 a.m. and made our usual move, proceeded downstream. Right away we saw deer, then we saw a family of otters leave the water and climb onto Spider Creek Island. We continued downstream and anchored. We began fishing using bright colors of power bait and power balls with wax worms, but wouldn’t you know it, the otters found us again. We heard some splashing behind us and there they were, friendly and cute, but the fish were not crazy about them. The bite slowed around 8:30, so we decided to relocate to see if the trout at another location had received the memo about taking a coffee break at 8:30. It turned out they had but only for a short one. However, (can you guess where this is going?) the otters showed up again. I guess they bought us luck though, because we limited out. By the end of the trip it turned out that the color and/or bait form didn’t make a lot of difference. As to luck, you know what they say, it’s better to be lucky than good, yet I prefer a combination of the two. :) Wishing you a great day of fishing and tight lines!
