    Heading out to otay lake targeting largies. Not sure what to expect. No boat, so I’ll be walking around the shore line. Any advice. Are there better lakes for shore fishing?

    Tough from shore but can be done. There’s a lot of other lakes that are easier to shore fish.

    It’s not set in stone that I have to go there but it’s close by that’s all. Any lake recommendations for my situation?

    Otay is definitely not a great shore lake. The few access points will have folks camped out on them all day with multiple rods in the water. I know its not a great lake but Murray has access to almost the entire lake by foot.

    Yea I thought about that Murray but also heard it’s a pretty tough bite. I might try it out anyway. Otay might be a headache
