Anyone hooking anything decent out there? Was out yesterday for a bit and caught about 15 dink crappies. I threw the camera down in a spot that was around 22 ft. and was spinning the cam pretty fast around and I saw white and a huge eyeball and thought oh **** that's a body. Turns out it was the white from the underside jaw of biggest muskie I have ever seen in that lake. Nose to nose with the cam lol, scared the c r a p right outta me when I was spinning the cam. I thought for sure the camera was gonna get hit but it just sat there for about 2 minutes then turned and swam away. It was easily 45+. Needless to say there were no other fish in sight lol.

great little lake for some big time action. I fish this lake all the time during open water. But have yet to try the winter bite.

On Saturday, I saw a truck go through the ice in the bay near the bull rushes. Pretty interesting. Not sure why some would drive into the weeds like that. Anyone else see it?

It wasnt out there on Sunday....well if it sank maybe it was lol. Why anyone would drive through weeds is a good question. Maybe one too many Coors or possibly just lost would be my guess.

I just fish it open water too, glad to hear there is at least 1 muskie in there.

The whole front right tire went in. They eventually got it out. It was during the day too. Around 2 in the afternoon.

No reports lately? I have been thinking about heading out there in the next day or two and see how things go. I drove by the other day and noticed a small number of people on the N end and the S bay looked pretty full, other than that not many other spots. Are there any? I've fished the lake plenty in the summer only to catch a couple small bass and that's it! Maybe throwing a double cowgirl or a buldawg has something to do with my lack of success? Lol

If any of you are interested in hooking up with me out there let me know because I usually have an open chair. I have a blue Fish Trap Guide and I'll be driving a maroon colored S-10, swing by and say hi even if you are going out to fish in your own house.

      Well said, Hoey. Regarding large walleyes eating small walleyes...…...a number of large walleyes every year chow down on my yellow, chrome and red (clown) Rapala TDD 11's, black headed white bodied and polka dotted (wonderbread)Reef Runners and a full spectrum of colored shad raps......not 1 of which resembles natural baitfish. So large walleyes won't gobble down a native fish of small proportions? Gimme a break. We need to insure that LOW does not become the new Mille Lacs. By the way, fishing is fantastic on ML currently. Pretty much all bigger fish. I would hate to not have a fish dinner after a day on the lake.

      If fan selection is set to high or low fan runs all the time. Set fan control to auto, fan starts and stops with compressor run.

      got an answer from coleman mach- they said all of their AC units are compatible with a thermostat, but you would also need to install a control box as well for the thermostat to communicate with it

      Thanks Cliff.  I was pretty sure you weren't using both at same time because law and because a itty bitty shad rap wouldn't get down that deep.  😀

      Was up over the weekend and fished Friday and Saturday for an hour or two each day.  Couldn't get a bite on a leech but rainbows were the ticket.  Walleyes were on very narrow window of feeding but when they did bite caught 6 slot fish 22-26.  All healthy and spitting up 2-6 inch perch in the net.  Green beads and Red beads on a 6 foot lindy drifting about 0.7 in 13-16 feet of water.  Find the bait balls on the sonar and look for the walleyes underneath.  No keepers but that's ok the slot fish were sure fun

      I haven't seen any dead minnows or evidence of spiny waterfleas in Frazier Bay this year. Any advice for fishing Frazier bay currently?  Usually around Father's Day we can catch them using slip bobbers and leeches/crawlers in shallower water in the evenings.  All we get are 11 inchers this year.  Any advice would be appreciated.

      I applied to be on the committee, denied.  I pretty much understand and agree with all comments in this post, however I would add the topic of slots.   1 - I believe the strategy behind the protective slot is a good thing for reproduction and growth of trophy sized fish. 2 - I believe there is a large natural imbalance of slot fish, size-wise, more of the slots than typical in nature. 3 - i believe this imbalance leads to depredation - large ones eating small ones.   The DNR and other "experts" claim walleye do not do this.  i have personally seen 10 inch eyes in the stomachs of 18s.  A 16 inch eye in a 30.  Not many of the fish in the slot and above are being cut open, so it is really tough to know exactly what is going on, but it sure is possible.   I do not have a recommendation on how to solve this.  Around 2000, fish over 19.5 were protected, allowing one over to be kept.  That would seem to help control the number of slots.  Again, I do not have a recommendation. Also, folks fishing multiple days, claiming a limit each day seems fishy, as it is nearly impossible to eat 4 fish each day.....  And if you claim have a fish meal the night before departing and you have a limit to travel with, you were over the limit.

      Fished Fri, Sat, and Sun with FIL, BIL, and the Mrs.  Fri was at large, deep basin reef.  Pulled up, anchored with a good bite.  Nothing fast and furious, but enough to keep us busy and interested.  Then the wind went flat.  Our bite went with it so we began pulling spinners, finding areas with biting fish.  The bugs were a moderate bother.  Ended with 8 larger eyes and 4 slot fish.   Sat was up to the south shore of the Angle.  Started off in 30' pulling spinners into 5', but never got past 27' as the bite was good.  Spent about a hour with this bite, then proceeded to join the 60 or so boats off Stoney.  We trolled through the village, picking up fish every 5 minutes or so.  Ended early at 2pm due to threatening skies that never produced and unbearable bugs.  Ended with another 8 eyes and 3 slot fish. Sun, needing suager, we fished in nearby reef that we heard had sauger.  Really no bugs to speak of due to the nice breeze.  Found our sauger, but more remarkable was the slot fish bite.  Ended just short of 20.  FIL was on fire.  He had nearly half of the boat's slots.  He went 28, 20, 25, 26.5, 27, 24, 27, and 24.  Here is the 28 with a smile.

      I agree with too many small fish, the issue is the deep water winter fishing.  This would result in more fish being wasted, as people would shove them under the ice rather than being fined.

      you are correct got a solid answer from champion on that; i do have an email sent out about the thermostat on those coleman ac units as they ahve a catolog selling them, just couldnt find out if it was compatible with our units
