Was in Alex this weekend and was going to fish Darling but I'm a bit of a chicken when it comes to ice (some mean black spots and some open water around the edges on Darling) so I went over to Agnes where I saw some folks fishing. With no map & no idea where I was going or what kind of fish Agnes holds I walked out from the public access, drilled a couple of holes and proceeded to catch a bunch of really nice perch. I've never really fished perch intentionally before, so I set my personal record with two fish over 11". I think there's still a few days of walkable ice on the bay I was fishing so you might want to head out there.

Chartruese jigs and a waxie, 10'-11' feet of water -- if you catch a few smaller males, stick it out because the big ones are real close. Line up the Alex water tower w/ the boat landing gazebo and head out about 400 yards. Best of luck and be careful -- a few warm days and ice conditions could go downhill fast. Spike

P.S. Ghotierman -- stopped into Northeast Outfitters on Saturday. You've got a great lookin' place and your guys were very friendly and really helpful even though I only bought a pack of waxies. Next time I'm in the area I'll be sure to stop by and spend a little more.

Spike, glad you had a good time this weekend! Agnes is one of the forgotten jewels of this area, along with her brother water, Henry. Both in-town lakes produce some decent panfish, nice perch, and an occasional northern. The water quality on both has improved measurably the last few years, and more anglers are taking advantage of the ample shoreline opportunities. There is a public pier off the city park on the north end of Agnes that's a nice early softwater panfish zone.

Thanks for the kind words about Northeast Outfitters, Spike. We're here to offer the best gear and information we can. Thanks again.

      Nice Job Jeff. Love the secret potion you know how scent can play a key role in the bite.    Wow some good prizes for this years event. People come on out and join the fun. We all will do are best to help you ice a few cats, maybe even your first.

      Those are some dandies . The eye bite has been a little rough lately.  What worked to put those two nice ones topside?

      First off welcome to the site and thanks for posting. Not sure about a road plowed on Woman but broad water and lantern bay are good  places to find panfish on that lake. More than likely there will be a truck trail to both as they are pretty popular spots. Good luck

      Fishing as Good Friday night then Saturday not so much. Pictures from Friday, none from Saturday because everyone knows what one 5” perch looks like.

      Was on Green by Chisago with my daughter who is 6. Like others, we marked a lot of fish but getting them to bite wasn’t easy. Did catch a fair number of bluegills and crappies but really had to coax them into biting. The bite did pick up a little as it got closer to dark though. We stayed out until about 6:30pm. My daughter didn’t want to leave but I was out of propane for my heater so it was getting a little cold so we left. Everything was mostly small but did catch a couple of decent sized crappies. Ice is thick and you could pretty much drive anywhere with 4WD. Fun time with the kid and she’s hooked on it. Already asking to go again.

      First timer checking in. My folks bought a place on Child/Boy River. Looking forward to spending more time in the area. Wondering if anyone knows if there are roads plowed on Woman Lake? Was hoping to try and catch an evening/morning bite this week. Thanks
