Spent a lot of time on Otter Tail Lake and West Battle over the weekend for once!

Otter Tail was completely dead for us. The weather was pretty hot and still on Saturday and I've always struggled with eyes with that weather on OT. We tried lots of tactics, and nothing produced a walleye.

West Battle, however, produced some nice walleyes, pike, bass, sunfish and northerns. We CPR'd a nice 29" walleye caught on a leech. We found most activity around 20 feet of water over the weekend.

The bass were on the small side when I spent some time with them on Friday. Sunfish were active in the shallows. The crappies have appeared to have gone deeper now and tougher to find active fish.

While fishing walleyes and pike we had some monster muskies follow our lures to the boat. I spotted a 50+" ski follow a 3lb pike to the boat. This fish was absolutely huge! Two other muskies followed our lures to the boat, and the strange thing was that our lures were coated with weeds at the time! They would not hit any other lures tossed at them, but it was really fun to see those fish.

We specifically targeted muskies too and did not have any luck.

Anyone else have any reports to compare?

Hey CD
I fished Fri.and Sat. night.Two very different evenings.
Friday night I was out from 10-2.The wind was 10-12 mph,almost a full moon and at midnight the northern lights covered half the sky.The walleyes were attacking my rapalas in 7-10 feet.Nice fish ,17"-23"
Saturday night I tried from 9-11:30. There was no wind so the bugs were so bad that it was hard to pay attention to what I was doing.Caught just 2 in the 16" range.
During the day it can be tough without a breeze.

WallEYES and I fished Ottertail on Saturday from about 4-11PM. Mostly in the center lake area near grandpa's and the Amor Point break just off to the east. Found some 'eyes on a little finger off one of the midlake humps and took home four eaters. We were dragging long line rigs with crawlers and jumbo leeches. Biggest was 19.5....The bugs were incredible! Quite the hatch!....It was hard to see coming off the lake!......T
