If it is the same Battle that I am thinking of, try posting your question on the Ottertail Forum. Paul might be able to answer it for you.

I was thinking of West Battle Lake. Last year a friend had some good luck out there for the craps.

Was kind of wondering the same myself. I'm heading up to WBL this weekend to do some northern tip-up fishing in the day, then switch over to walleyes or crappies towards dusk. I'll post my results when I get back..

I do not hang out on west battle so I would have to stop at bens bait and tackle in battle lake to get the lowdown before I headed over that way. I do get over to east battle occasionally, I like that lake! Paul

Paul - I saw your comment on East Battle. I fish the lake, but have limited luck with walleyes, etc. Any suggestions from any body?
Great Forum!

Hi Indy,
I like to go there in the fall and jig fish with shiners. Awesome colors on all the maples around the lake. I spend most of my time in the southeast basin fishing weededges and down to about 35 ft. Earler in the year I like to troll crawler harnesses in the same areas but over the deeper rolling hill type bottom. The best color for me had been chartruse/green. There is some pretty decent pike in there too. It is a great lake and worth the extra 20 minute drive if its too windy on ottertail. A good locator is pretty important there also. Have a super season!! Paul

      HunterFisher Don't rule out trying that lake again. If theres a lot of wood in the water those schools could, be pinned down on other trees than you were fishing. Trust me I have a lake near Glenwood i fish that has a bunch of tress scattered throughout the lake. It took me numerous times fishing it to figure out patterns on that lake. But once i found them well worth it!  I have found lakes with a lot of submerged trees or wood usally hold some real good panfish, . They have plenty of places to hide from predators and anglers through out the seasons.

      See you tomorrow Jeff we'll dial them in

      Keep checking in here for any updates.  There's a very good chance that the location may change a bit as there have not been a lot of catfish at the methhole area.  Prefishing in the next day or so will help us pin down a location.  I will post any changes here.
    • Borch
      A lake like that with no real hole or structure lends itself to roaming fish.  If there is a defined weededge that will be your structure.  Electronics are not going to show you much until the fish is on your bait.  Drill a lot of holes and move around until you catch fish.

      Hay thanks for your input.... Just got home and got skunked!!!!! But that is ok at least now I know to take it off my list of lakes to fish in the winter, but will be back on it come spring and early summer...

      Caught 17 walleyes on Friday, but all were dinks except for two 15".  Caught 6 more Saturday, all small again except for one 16".  Also caught a 12 inch perch, 3 eelpout, and 2 tulibee. Considering the snowstorm prediction for Sunday, I pulled my house off the lake and parked it back in the garage for the season.  LOW next week, then onto lakers the following weekend.
    • JerkinLips
      I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday. I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday.
