Muskie fishing in the Frazer Bay area?

Recommended Posts

krats

I am going to be up fishing muskies for the first time on Lake Vermilion and staying in Frazer Bay on the 3rd weekend of September and I was wondering if someone could tell me how the muskie fishing is in this area. Just wondering in general if the area will be a good spot to work, not looking for specifics necessarily.

Thanks.

Hey Krats,

Are you going to be healed up by then??? I don't know that there's a bad area of the lake for musky fishing. The Frazer Bay area can be excellent. You're a relatively short boat ride away from the Big Bay area on the east end. But between there and Frazer Bay could keep you busy for a long time too. It'll be a little more protected if you have a lot of wind as well.

Thanks Aaron, I hope to be in good shape by then, doctor says 3 more weeks and they will cut me loose to do whatever I want.

You and I will have to talk more before I go, I may need a few last minute items for the Lakewood from "MTO" for the trip. I am sure you have a few ideas for me.

I will be in touch. smile.gif

poor attempt at humor on my part. Musky haven't been present in Frazer since 89'. LOL

Rackenstuff,

That's what I thought, but wasn't really sure.

Thanks for the info, depressing though, I was hoping you would say that the bay was the home of many 50+ers.

Don't we all wish we could find a spot like that? Come to think of it, I am pretty sure I would not share that with alot of people.

Rack,

Sounds good, I will email you tonight. I will be up with my brother-in-law and we are kind of new to muskie fishing still. We will be up early Friday morning through Sunday morning.

The fishing was tough. The weather last week through Friday night was messed up, lots of rain over the last week or so. You could not see bottom in 6' in alot of areas, I understand that it should be gin clear. I guess that is what 16" of rain in a short time will do to a lake.

We managed 5 follows but no takers. Well one grabbed the tail of my Phantom and held onto it at boat side for a few moments but she did not eat it.

The scenery was nice and I will go back.

Hey Rackenstuff,

Looked around Gold Island for you on Saturday. We guessed that maybe it was too windy for you.

Did you get out?

Catch you next trip maybe.

We had a massive tree fall on our cabin and required a good deal of work on Saturday.

The only musky I saw was fishing walldoes with Cliff!

Massive ski followed the walleye to the boat!

i did throw a double cowgirl around old weedbeds with no luck.

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
