BrianA Posted August 14, 2008 Report Share Posted August 14, 2008 I was again this past Saturday graced by the presence of an otter, this time on the DuPage River in the greater Naperville area. It swam over oblivious to me and my topwater as I stood in chest high grass and cast out my topwater plug. Then it made its way up the bank and began to frolic through the same grass and either picked up my scent or my cast, retrieve and rattling lure set off his alarm. The little fella made an immediate bee-line back from which it came and no more critter. This same type of encounter was made once last year w/ my brother and again this spring w/ my junky pal Rudy. Now we (the three heads together to make one good brain) can tell the difference in critters. Neither was a beaver as it did not have a large paddle tail, large front teeth, wide berth body. It was not a muskrat as the tail was too thick and the body too long and sleek. Having watched them @ the Brookfield Zoo I am convinced as were my compadres that we had a bonafide otter sighting! Now three times. How cool is that? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
