Many reports indicate that walleye have been unusually active in the shallows where they are responding well to live bait. Spinners and live bait rigs with minnows or crawlers account for the majority of fish. Low light hours remain the most productive.
OTTER TAIL AREA LAKES
Crappie action has been good in Otter Tail Lakes Country. Anglers report lots of success when trolling small jigs and plastic baits on top of the weeds and on the weed edges in 7-10 feet of water. Walleye can also be found in the weeds. The larger northern pike have moved deep to cooler and more comfortable water, but there are plenty of smaller pike in the shallows willing to bite. Largemouth bass anglers are having a blast tossing frogs around the lily pads. Larger baits are working well. The bigger bluegills have also vacated the shallows for the main lake structure. For great panfish action, hit the humps, points and deepest cabbage.
