Fishing Strategies Changes Like the Weather!

Fishing continues to be good in the Otter Tail Lake area.  Walleyes are in 20 to 30 feet of water on mid-lake humps.

Crawlers and leeches with spinners are working best.  Colors working best are yellow/orange, blue/white and chartreuse.

Panfish bit is going good in 15 feet of water.  Wax worms or small minnows on a slip bobber are the ticket.

Crank bait bite is starting to pick up in the evenings in 7 to 12 feet of water.  Purple, blue or bleeding pearl are color choices.

All you deer hunters - remember if you are in the lottery area, you can only shoot 1 deer for the year.  Applications for a doe permits must be in by September 10th.

Call for more details on fishing or hunting rules for this year.  Gary Peterson, Ken's Tackle 218-495-2895
