There are over 1,000 lakes in Otter Tail County.  Holly’s Resort is on Otter Tail Lake and it is one of the larger lakes in the county.  For four days the wind blew at 20mph or stronger, so I did not wet a line.  My recent “spinal cord decompression surgery” would not allow me to tolerate the bumpy ride.  This summer I will only fish on calm days.

We hired Randin Olson who is a full time fishing guide.  He chose another smaller lake, “Secret Lake”, and so the other Osberg men were able to catch plenty of Walleye and many small mouth bass.  Randin and my brother Geoff both claim that smallies taste just like Walleye. You can hook up with Randin at  

My family is very blessed with many traditions, the first of which is the “Osberg Fishing Trip”.  I have attached a photo of my grandson Walleye Willie with a 20 inch smallie.
