Don't go giving too much notice there Royce!
Been kinda wondering if a yakking GTG would pop up some day. Would be a great time to share a paddle and see how others rig their gear for fishing, or whatever. And maybe do some demo paddling in other kinds of yaks than what we're paddling now.
Now, who might be able to put something like that together??
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.
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
Welcome to our Forum Muzzy! You may want to consider hiring a guide for a day or even 1/2 day to start your trip.

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
