I will be fishing Ottertail for the first time this next week and was wondering how the walleyes were biting. I usually fish Leech, but this year My family wanted to go to a different lake so I picked Ottertail. What is the best presentation, are they shallow, deep, any information will be greatly appreciated.Also are there any decent Muskie or Smallmouth lakes in the area?

Thanks
Rainman

You will fare well if you move around alot until you find fish with your locator. Lindy rigs about 4 to 5 ft long tipped with a leech or a shiner are my choices. Fish the edges of the big flats and the midlake humps, if they dont want the lindy rig try a gold spinner with a leech and a little more weight and move a little faster, sometimes it can trip some inactive fish. I like trolling cranks up on the flats at night, alot of fun when the moon is out and not very crowded. Budget your time in one spot, lots of water to cover and only so much daylight. Depths with active fish are from 14 to 25 feet.. I'll be down there and big pine all next week, give me a shout! Good luck and good fishin!! Paul
