Good Morning Ohio Trappers,

Looking for tips/tricks/advice on open water otter sets. I've never targeted them before, and don't have a crossover to set anywhere near the sign I found this weekend.

I was paddling my kayak through the first ice (very slushy, bad ice) and followed a family group for about 300 yards sliding on top. I didn't see any toilet sign or feeding activity around, not sure how to proceed. Maybe I needed to keep following the tracks? Breaking through the ice got real tiresome pretty dang fast.

Are baited cubbies for otter a thing, or even legal? What's a good call lure for them?

Any advice, tips, or set ideas are greatly appreciated! Tight chains, and good luck this weekend to all my fellow beaver trappers.
