was in the BIG MUDDY today at CAMP MC CALL - there about 25 ft. away was an OTTER has anyone ever seen these and should i worry except the fish i`ll have on the line will probably get nipped - he was definitely BIG
Seen otters when I was yaking in bear creek once. I grew up on the edge of a beaver pond in Meadow. My brother and I were homeschooled and had a canoe that we loved to paddle all up and down the swamp. We got well acquainted with the beavers and they weren't afraid of the canoe. They'd come up and slap the water and soak us!
Very cool video.
I was on a local flow last Fall and got to within about 20 ft of one that was sleeping on a tree trunk in the river. I think it was ****** that I made it get in that cold water. In that same area also found a catfish head sitting on a branch sticking out of the river that something had eaten from the tail to the dorsal fin.
That seems to be the favorite part of the fish that otters eat...!!...we have several in th pond behind our house and
often find half eaten fish and the part left is the dorsal fin to the lips....tail and back half are gone....?????
