Time to Fish! Otter Tail Lake - 6 to 12 Inches

Ice is 6 to 12 inches on the big lake! 
People are moving fish houses all over Otter Tail Lake.  Four wheelers are the best for transportation now.  Always check where you are going - ice is never completely predictable.
Fish are biting in 20 to 30 feet of water.
All accesses are now open.  Be safe and we hope to see you over the holidays!
Stop in at Ken's Tackle for some direction!  Happy Holidays!

Up to 8" on Otter Tail Lake!

Checked out Otter Tail Lake tonight and I'm happy to report it's 1 to 8 inches of ice.  All accesses are open with the exception of Amor Park - still some pockets of 1 to 2 inches off of Amor Park.

Caution is still advised.

Walleyes are being caught in 20 to 30 feet of water.  Perch are also biting in 15 to 25 feet of water.

Stop in Ken's Tackle on directions, please be careful.
