    I always plan on heading out there each winter but don't. I hear good things about Otter and Clunie lakes. Try doing a search on the forums with specific lake names.

    Otter Lake hasn't been stocked in five years due to the presence of pike. I would hit Clunie, Hillberg, and Upper Six-mile.
    Your bait stinks and your boat is ugly

    I've fished all the lakes on the Elmendorf side, only Otter on the Ft Rich side. Hillberg and Green are pretty good but you have to know the right place to bore the hole, other wise you come up empty. On Green go down the hill and off the dock. Turn about 45 degrees to the right and go out 25 yards or so.

    I have had a lot of fun ice fishing Clunie lake the last few years. Lots of decent bows nothing huge. Otter Lake no real success but if i were to go back i would fish the deeper hole.... I wouldnt suggest Otter Lake to anyone though. Outdoor Rec has good infor depending on who you talk to

    Can anybody recomend a heater for a quickfish 3, looking at the mr heater for 100 but not sure if the smaller one will work just as good?

    youll probably leave that auger on the ice.... maybe even shove it down the hole after the hour itll take to drill

    That's too bad. Otter used to have some big rainbows. I caught several in the 8-10 lb range (27"-28") through the ice back in the early 90's.

    Time to kill some pike.

    went to clunie to check it out, if ya dont have 4wd lol i wouldnt suggest going on the side road. My ol ladys car is fwd and we had to have a lil help getting out. The guys that helped said that this is the biggest hes seen the rainbow there so idk maybe we will have some luck tomorrow. If it doesnt lay down to much snow.
