Frazer Bay (and surrounding) advice please

5 posts in this topic

I will be staying on Frazer Bay for a week starting on the 7th. I have never fished Vermillion before and was just looking for some general info for Frazer and the vicinity. We will be doing a multi-species attack(read 'anything that bites' wink.gif ) I will be trying for muskie quite a bit, but also will be looking for wally, smallie, pike and pannies. Not looking for spot on a spot, just general patterns regarding depth and/or structure for this time of year. Thanks a bunch!

Spinnerbaits, bucktails and topwaters work good for muskies and pike. Frasier bay has some huge muskies. I'd check the rock piles and wind blown areas. Most places with a buoy are worth trying. The middle section has some great weeds, and is a great area to try for pike and bass. Lots of bass in the slop too. Frasier bay also has some huge areas of expansive deep water. If you're struggling with fish on the reefs and shoreline, it could be worthwhile to locate some baitfish and try some open water trolling with big crankbaits. Make sure to be out there early morning and late evening. Night bite can be good as well. I'll be up there the same time, although I'll be over on the west side. Good luck.

Another spot to try is out of Frazer Bay ond over to Daisy Bay. There is an island there called Banana Island. Try throwing in there for muskie and pike. There are also a few other islands right in that area to try. Black bucktail with orange blade is a good bait to start with.

Thanks nitroant, I will have to give that area a try. Hopefully I will have some stories to share when I get back. One thing for sure: I won't be working cool.gif

      I believe it is the 49 bridge just a little south of there. Lots of ice chunks coming down.

      How far did you get?

      I fished the river on Saturday and saw at least a dozen different full sized trucks going in and out of the bays and all over the Arrowhead Flats. Since then an F150 and several ATV's have gone through. Just like Big Country predicted, another one today. Under the Oliver Bridge an old timer on a 6 wheeler spent 30 minutes in the water before a passerby noticed him holding onto the ice. Please be safe, tell your friends, tell anyone who talks fishing. Any ice right now is sketchy

      A buddy of mine was out fishing last night and some guy drilled a big spear hole in the ice and never marked it or out the ice back in the hole. My buddy told me the ice block wasn't even by the spear hole he almost fell in! Reminder to always mark your spear hole and keep a careful eye out to make sure you don't step in one!
