Minnesota Pro Tip of the Week: Shorelines breaks putting up best bite

By Todd Cameron

The bite has been going good in Otter Tail County lakes, especially Otter Tail, for instance.

The walleye bite has been a shiner bite. For jig anglers, a 16th-ounce jig and a shiner has been best. Rigs are also working with shiners.

The bite has been best in 8 to 12 feet of water, with shoreline breaks and any inside corners or humps and bumps producing bites on the flats. Look for any protrusions sticking out along the shoreline breaks.

If you can find where the wind is blowing in, all the better. With the water being so clear on Otter Tail due to zebra mussels, you can see the bottom in 12 feet of water. So wherever the wind is blowing will give you some overhead cover from the walleyes.
