Fishing in the Otter Tail Lake area continues to be good. Jig and minnow, or snell are working well. Depths are in the 8 to 30 foot range. Crawlers and leeches are also starting to heat up. For some night fishing try a jig and bobber in 10 to 15 feet of water. Lastly, bass fishing and panfish bite has also been very good.
Ken's Tackle started caring a new line called Okuma. Okuma is a Canadian company who is really coming on strong. Okuma makes an assortment of rods and reels for those in search of a good mid-priced outfit. We recommend an Avenger spinning reel that has seven ball bearings and an Aquios rod for medium action for your walleye. This make is a sweet combo for under $80.
Muskie fishermen: check out their muskie rods and reels for muskie opener this week-end.
