ratmn218,

I have been wondering about this lake myself. I haven't fished it in about 3 years. I would guess that a snowmobile would get you were ever you needed to go at this point if it's holding up like other area lakes.

As I'm sure you know this is a very small body of water. With that said I wouldn't expect there to be many replies about it. If you have anytime off during the week next week and want to give it a look. I would be up for a trip out. You can either post here or e-mail me if you have some time off and are interested in heading up that way.

My mode of travel is by wheeler.

OK you two! do me a favor and let me know if I can run my wheeler up the river to the lake. Dont have a sled, but my 700 King quad with mud lights can go through a bit of snow. I love that lake, no PEOPLE and nice fish.Its a drive but its worth it. Thanks!

From what I hear the river channel is fine but soon as it opens up into the lake it’s horrible. Even with a snowmobile you get stuck, the person who told me about it turned around and went to Fish lake and got a limit of Crappies and a few walleyes.

I was thinking it might be that way. well hope we get some cold weather to firm it up. Might have to wait untill March.But then you have to deal with the river .

      I heard Casey retired and sold his boat.

      Gills should be on or real close to beds. Crappies are on beds on some lakes, done spawning on others. Btw, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

      It was on the opener last year.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you
