Low-water woes, and a ‘blue’ pike from Otter Tail County, Minnesota

Here’s a look inside the mouth of a “blue” northern pike that was caught from an Otter Tail County lake in Minnesota. Carney says he recalls such pike being caught from the Great Lakes, but seeing one caught from a western Minnesota inland water was odd, indeed. (Photo courtesy of Steve Carney)

The low-water woes continue as we slide into late September. This low-water issue is a factor for both fishing and for duck hunting.
I had a backwater area scoped out for the early duck season, only to find it dry and unhuntable. Checking your duck areas prior to hunting is imperative this season because many sloughs, backwater areas, and river systems are as low as I have ever seen them.
