Hey Travis could find out the best tactics or best way to trap an otter. My father has one in his pond and it's reeking havoc. It only comes up out of the creek in the winter time. I know it's been a while since this topic has been active,but any info would be helpful. The pond is full of bib-big bluegills and it's been killing mostly catfish now. So he wants to take care of it before it moves on to the bluegills.
