    I saw some one time with my original duck dog. He was older at the time. The otters would dive and swim but I was running beside them in the boat. They would surface and act shocked that I was right next to them.... If Ol' Red Dog had jumped in he would have gotten more then he bargained for! Used to see a piebald one in one spot. Have watched them from the Hatchie river to Barkley and several spots in between. Seen one at Reelfoot. LOTs of mink on Reelfoot!

    I've read where people have had good luck using citronella oil and moth balls to repel them. Not nearly as effective as a 12 gauge but if you're having trouble catching or shooting them it might help to save a few fish until you get a bead on one.

    Every one I ever shot floated. Retrieved them with a fishing reel and a surface plug. Shot in the head they flop and bleed enough to look like a shark attack!
