Agate Bay

I'm thinking of heading up to Mille Lacs and fishing out of Agate Bay. Wondering if anyone has any reports from that area? Thanks

I have a fishhouse out of there. Fished on Thursday and Friday, had two walleyes one in the slot and one to big. Caught one big northern on thursday night that measured 40.5". A lot of small perch,might have to go shallower to find bigger ones. Let me know how you do. I will be up there Sunday night through Wednesday night. Good Luck

The bite continues to be very poor. I talk to ALOT of fishermen and decided since everyone is having a tough bite I would try the deep gravel. I did not catch a walleye today. Probably the first time I ever posted such bad news. Resort owners are praying for a bite. If you are looking for an accurate report, trust me. When they bite I report it.

Spent over 12 hours on the lake yesterday pounding it and trying different areas...not ONE walleye, and 8 really nice jumbos (10-12") at dusk we had a few walleyes on the vex, but they were not gonna bite no matter what we did.

I fished Agate Bay from Friday at noon until today at 10 am with three other guys and had only 1 walleye (21 inches). Marked fish on the vex and saw a bunch of little perch with the camera. Threw everything at them that we could to no avail. Oh well, better luck next time.

Hey latz, Were the houses out beyond the reef yet? How far out did you fish? I know the area pretty good and just wondered where you were at. Sounds like the shallow rocks on top are producing. Thanx

Flipnripem,

The houses were not out very far. We were in 17 feet of water and it was really slow. The ice is not that great. There are 2 bridges that the Agate Bay resort had out. There is also a 6 inch crack about 20 feet from shore. The houses are all along a pressure ridge about a half a mile out.

I did see 3 walleye gutted on the ice, all over the slot. mad.gif

Thats to bad, to see sombody over and above the law. Talked to my dad tonight and he fished the south side and did fair. The wife was with so he did not move to much. Saw tons of small perchies. If I get up to Agate I`ll file a report. Seems the inside of the reef would be better, but who really knows. It`s easy to say when your four hours away. Keep jerkin. Flip

Was at Agate Sun. evening through Tues. morning. We got 6 eyes total. 2-22",3-20",
1-10". Also got one jumbo. didn't fish during the day at all just during prime time, we just bought a house and had to work on it on shore. Fished in 8.5-11ft. of water. Most fish on small jigging raps, a couple on set lines. Agate is now letting people drive as of today(new years eve). Nothing great but if your set up and quiet and fish hard during prime times you should pull some fish. Will be up this coming weekend so I'll post again. I didn't see any dead walleyes but thats just sick, you cant tell me those guys didn't have fun catching those fish. Good luck.

Thanks for the reports folks. To Fisheatsleep, we fished Tue. in about 17 to 18 feet. Fished from 2 to 6pm, not even a bite. Marked alot of fish, but no takers. Was still fun to get out. Have fun!

kwkfsh,

I did not see the people who left them on the ice. I saw the fish as I was leaving the lake to go home. If I had I would not have reported them any way, the DNR may have had a problem with me fishing with 4 lines, chumming, and using perch eyes!!! grin.gif

Latz, did you report those over slot fish to the DNR? If you did'nt you are as guilty as the poachers! I have seen 2 posts today re: fishing violations that people did'nt report. Come on people! If we are not going to hold the violaters accountable they will keep raping your resource. If I see you violating the law I will report it, and I will testify at your trial if neccesary! grin.gif

      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"
