Ice Fishing Video and Pics From Otter Creek

Here is a short ice fishing video from fishing at Otter Creek last week. We caught a bunch of fish and had a lot of fun:

Ice Fishing Otter Creek

Otter Creek is a 680 acre farm in Fulton County that I have been working on for 3 years. It has 3 lakes and 2 controlled cell hatchery wetlands with over 200 acres of intensively managed fishing water that meander throughout the property. I manage literally thousands of acres of water across Illinois and would have to say that Otter Creek is hands down the best fishery of them all. There is no equal anywhere in the United States to the quality of Otter Creek's multi-species fishery.

For anyone interested in this project, here are more videos and pictures of Otter Creek Preserve. Its pretty much the coolest place on earth! Not only is every square inch of the lakes manicured for fish, but you can see the land is managed pretty intensively as well. This place is about as scenic as it gets in the midwest!

If anyone out there is serious about making a world class turn-key hunting and fishing property, definitely get in touch with Herman Brothers Lake and Land Management! We have assembled a team of the very best fish and land guys in the midwest and are very excited to be starting a couple more big land and lake renovation projects such as this in 2011.

Also as a fundraiser for the Hooked On Fishing Park, I will be taking a handful of guided fishing trips at Otter Creek Preserve yet this Winter and also in the Spring. Stay tuned for more pictures and videos of these upcoming trips! Every time fishing out at Otter Creek is camera overload!!! Plus we have a bunch of cull fish like crappies that need harvested. Here are a few more ice fishing pictures from last week at Otter:

  1. Wow. That's amazing. I've never seen such a big bass pulled out of a hole before. And that ice is amazingly clear. We always have to go through 6 inches of snow before even hitting ice.

    Almost makes me want to move to IL. Almost.
