Muskie fishing in the Frazer Bay area?

Recommended Posts

krats

I am going to be up fishing muskies for the first time on Lake Vermilion and staying in Frazer Bay on the 3rd weekend of September and I was wondering if someone could tell me how the muskie fishing is in this area. Just wondering in general if the area will be a good spot to work, not looking for specifics necessarily.

Thanks.

Hey Krats,

Are you going to be healed up by then??? I don't know that there's a bad area of the lake for musky fishing. The Frazer Bay area can be excellent. You're a relatively short boat ride away from the Big Bay area on the east end. But between there and Frazer Bay could keep you busy for a long time too. It'll be a little more protected if you have a lot of wind as well.

Thanks Aaron, I hope to be in good shape by then, doctor says 3 more weeks and they will cut me loose to do whatever I want.

You and I will have to talk more before I go, I may need a few last minute items for the Lakewood from "MTO" for the trip. I am sure you have a few ideas for me.

I will be in touch. smile.gif

poor attempt at humor on my part. Musky haven't been present in Frazer since 89'. LOL

Rackenstuff,

That's what I thought, but wasn't really sure.

Thanks for the info, depressing though, I was hoping you would say that the bay was the home of many 50+ers.

Don't we all wish we could find a spot like that? Come to think of it, I am pretty sure I would not share that with alot of people.

Rack,

Sounds good, I will email you tonight. I will be up with my brother-in-law and we are kind of new to muskie fishing still. We will be up early Friday morning through Sunday morning.

The fishing was tough. The weather last week through Friday night was messed up, lots of rain over the last week or so. You could not see bottom in 6' in alot of areas, I understand that it should be gin clear. I guess that is what 16" of rain in a short time will do to a lake.

We managed 5 follows but no takers. Well one grabbed the tail of my Phantom and held onto it at boat side for a few moments but she did not eat it.

The scenery was nice and I will go back.

Hey Rackenstuff,

Looked around Gold Island for you on Saturday. We guessed that maybe it was too windy for you.

Did you get out?

Catch you next trip maybe.

We had a massive tree fall on our cabin and required a good deal of work on Saturday.

The only musky I saw was fishing walldoes with Cliff!

Massive ski followed the walleye to the boat!

i did throw a double cowgirl around old weedbeds with no luck.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.
    • urbaniceteam
      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick 
    • Borch
      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
