Spring fishing opener brings anglers out to Otter Lake Saturday

Hoie Thompson of Eau Claire was among those who showed up to the Otter Lake north boat landing this weekend for the Spring fishing opener. "It's kind of like hunting," he said. "You never know until you go," Thompson shared that his main goals were panfish and possibly a bonus walleye. "I'm tired of watching TV and talking about it, so I'm going," he said.
