Went to Ottertail County last weekend and hit 5 lakes and struck out on all 5. Tried shallow mid range and deep all with the same results little 5-6 inch gills. I did manage 1 keeper crappie 11 incher but that was it. I was marking fish they would not bite. Tried plastics, jigs, and minnow style baits. A friend tried euros, waxies, and minnows. I cut a pile of holes went through both 9 amp and the 6 batteries and even recharged the 9 to use again on the lake.
