There is one hole about 500 yds out from where you get on, about 27ft. And if you go down the lake to the other end (about 1 mile) you will see where people have fished. thats also about 27 ft. Go EARLY, or go about 3pm and stay until dark.

I fished it couple years ago and found the humps around 10 -12 feet to produce a couple of eyes. I have never really did all that well on this lake.

Ive kinda been thinking of this lake a little bit too. The dnr report says theres a lot of walleyes in there but ive never heard of anyone doing that well in there.

Slow and then slower yet. Talked to a guy that lives on the lake, and he does not have his house out on the lake Said the eyes were hard to find this year but some nice perch>>>later the load

I usually do well fishing for walleyes on this lake... I use a search technique, and once i find them, I fish for them a lot slower.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
