Opener in the Otter Tail Lake area started off in the evening with some success for the shore fishermen at the river inlets and outlets. 

During the morning hours fishing was fair until a cold front moved through and slowed things down.  Fishing improved greatly after dark with some nice fish taken in 15 feet of water with a lighted bobber and plain hook tipped with a shiner.  As the water starts to warm this week, look for fish on shoreline breaks and in shallower water as bait fish start to move in.

This week we look forward to the Wild 104.1 tournament this Friday and Saturday on Otter Tail Lake.  For more information on this call us at the shop at 218-495-2894 or e-mail us at

Good luck and be courteous to other boats!
