Frazer Bay (and surrounding) advice please

Recommended Posts

fishingforester

I will be staying on Frazer Bay for a week starting on the 7th. I have never fished Vermillion before and was just looking for some general info for Frazer and the vicinity. We will be doing a multi-species attack(read 'anything that bites' wink.gif ) I will be trying for muskie quite a bit, but also will be looking for wally, smallie, pike and pannies. Not looking for spot on a spot, just general patterns regarding depth and/or structure for this time of year. Thanks a bunch!

Spinnerbaits, bucktails and topwaters work good for muskies and pike. Frasier bay has some huge muskies. I'd check the rock piles and wind blown areas. Most places with a buoy are worth trying. The middle section has some great weeds, and is a great area to try for pike and bass. Lots of bass in the slop too. Frasier bay also has some huge areas of expansive deep water. If you're struggling with fish on the reefs and shoreline, it could be worthwhile to locate some baitfish and try some open water trolling with big crankbaits. Make sure to be out there early morning and late evening. Night bite can be good as well. I'll be up there the same time, although I'll be over on the west side. Good luck.

Another spot to try is out of Frazer Bay ond over to Daisy Bay. There is an island there called Banana Island. Try throwing in there for muskie and pike. There are also a few other islands right in that area to try. Black bucktail with orange blade is a good bait to start with.

Thanks nitroant, I will have to give that area a try. Hopefully I will have some stories to share when I get back. One thing for sure: I won't be working cool.gif

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      To bad HSO doesn't have something like this for the Leaders board Top Members contributions. 😕

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.

      Welcome TheEyesofanAngler! A ton of good bass lakes around the area.  For numbers of 2 to 4 lb bass, the eastern Todd County lakes near Burtrum and NW Morrison county are hard to beat as well.

      Good job guys!

      Have only been out a couple of times now but did get a 5.5 lb walleye my first 10 minutes out in 16 feet of water. Lots of fish in the 16-20 feet range. No jumping in the boat but catching fish on the mid lake areas. I'll be darned if I'll sit under a bridge with other boats when you can catch fish out on the lake without others boaters around.

      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?

      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)

      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
