Agate Bay Resort

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

A few of us have reserved a sleeper the weekend of December 27th - 29th at Agate Bay Resort. Last year was our first time ice fishing on Mille Lacs and we went through the Red Door and fishing was really slow. Just wondering what to expect this time. Any information would be great.

Thanks,

Latz

Latz, thats a great question, I am currently working on perfecting a system which will allow me to predict how fishing will be 20-25 days in advance on a body of water over 100 miles away. As soon as I get a few bugs worked out it will do just that. At that point in time it will allow me to become the richest most powerful man on earth. I have been working on this for over 30 years and have made tremendous progress. I now have the system finetuned to a point where I can tell how the fishing will be on the water I am currently fishing on, and sometimes for as long as 8-12 minutes into the future. I know this is exciting news so please try and contain yourself. Tremendous time, energy, and money is being devoted to research and development. Anyone who would like to donate to help speed the perfection of this technology may make donations in the form of cash, money order, boats, bait, tackle, maid service, large pepperoni and sausage pizzas, 2 cycle oil, or Summit extra pale ale. I will keep you informed of new developements, or at least the need for more donations!!! grin.gif

Kwkfsh,
You need to send me a set of fish-n-piss diapers berofe you write stuff like that...so I don't wet my good slacks! grin.gif

latz333,
The biggest thing to remember is there are fish below you all the time at dusk and dawn unless your on a real bad spot. The biggest mistake guys make in the permanents is being load and partying during the good bite which equals no fish. Save the noise for later and you should be ok out of almost any resort!

Good one man!! On a serious note, you should be able to catch fish on this lake at any time of the year and really any time of the day. If your not, move if you can be portabloe during the day. Let them know your intentions...a lot of times people rent sleepers just to gather and catching fish is a bonus. Let the resort owner know you are very serious about catching fish and if you want to catch a few fish all day, more fish during the day, or if you plan on being portable during the day, let them know that you want the house setup in a night time location. This bit of communication can really help your trip. This time of year catching fish on Mille Lacs shouldn't be too tough, but even within a single resort one guy can be catching a ton and not to far away a guy might not get a bite.

Good Luck, I will be on the SW side during this time, if your going to be portable during the day let me know. We sometimes head into Cove bay for pike during the day, we tend to get a few walleyes then too.

Thanks All (even you kwkfsh),

I should have been a little more specific for our slower friends on the board!!! grin.gif

Grabs,
There are going to be four of us and we will definitely be portable. We are bringing up two 2 man clams and were planning on hitting it pretty hard. We had talked about trying to get into some monster pike during the day and using the sleeper as a base. Do the sleeper thing at night and having a few cold ones... smile.gif
We should try to hook up. I will post a little closer to the trip.

latz, the agate bay reef is where we start our Ice fishing each year. If you guys are sleeping in you will miss the best fishing of the day. I head out before sun-up and wait for the walleyes. Very seldom do I get blanked. As the morning progresses and the people head into the resort for breakfast I start catching perch. The perch run in sperts but can be lots of fun. I don't start chasing fish until mid January. This reef is good early season and the resort will have there rentals on top of it. Color can be key, especially colored hooks.
Last year my wife stayed with the glow red and out fished me during the day. She was getting walleyes while I was trying to figure out what color the perch wanted.
Fatheads & rainbows. Mousies at times.
Good Luck...

Scupper,

As you can see from my earlier post, that is exactly what I was looking for. There will be no sleeping in when there are fish to catch!!!! grin.gif We usually go to LOTW but this year decided to stay a little closer to home for the 1st trip of the year. The one thing we were all excited about was that we would be a lot more mobile and be able to move to the fish and not the other way around. Looks like it will be a good time!!

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"
