We Have Fish on the Brain!

We have fish on the brain!  The million dollar question these days is, "Is the ice off the lake yet?"  Yes!  Late in April, the third week, the ice disappeared.  We are now ready for fishing opener on May 9th.

We are hoping for a better than average opener because there was not a lot of pressure on the lake this winter because of all the snow.  As the water warms up, shiners should be running and we are ready to make fishing memories.  As my best friend used to call this time of the year - We have fish on the brain!

This year, a couple of tournaments planned on Otter Tail Lake:  the Wild 104.1, May 15&16 and Lake Country Sportsmen's tournament on June 14.  Both are well run and you can get additional information by calling us at 218-495-2895 or e-mail us at our website,
