I was wondering if anyone has summer fished this lake. If so how did you get a boat there? Would we have to tow a 14ft and portage into the lake. How was the fishing for you. We are heading up that way for grouse hunting in the fall and I thought it would be nice to get back there some how if there is a way.

Neiko, The portage is tiny. You can almost throw a rock across it if you have a good arm. Probabaly 60 yards. Haven't fished it in years, but it has good small mouth, Sunfish, Lakers, crappies. Good luck

Thanks for the info. I was thinking of bringing my 14ft which isn't lite but if it is only 60 yards we could figure something out to get it across for 2 people. Is there a dock on Mukooda or just going to there? Are there any campsites there we could stay over night there on?

I am bummed. I just found out Lake trout season closes the week before we go. Is it still worth going there for other species? How are the walleyes? Are there any under 20 inches? How are the pan fish also? I was really looking to go for the Lakers. Might have to try it this winter.

      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??

      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!

      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
