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 have a metal roof on my house near Cook, I installed it about thirteen years ago still looks/works great. Replaced my shingled roof at home(Pine Island) last year, the shingles lasted 17 years before they were lookin pretty tough. That would be twice I've replaced shingles at home in 35 years.   The major problem I have with steel is when the snow melts off of the roof, it will all come off at one time. If your car, or the door you use to get in and out of your house is under the eave's, you WILL have an issue. Last spring enough snow came off of my roof in one melting, that it would have buried, and I'm sure crushed my truck. The snow drift after that melting was about 10' wide, and 4' deep. You better plow it right away, or you will have an ice drift that you cannot remove. The only other issue, is that when it rains it really runs off of the roof. You will get wet standing under the eaves of your house. The rain come's off in sheets.  You could use gutters or deflectors, but the snow coming off in the spring will also remove your gutters/deflectors, guaranteed. A door on the gable end of your house will take care of the rain and snow problem.   Other than that I think the steel roof is great, it is easy to apply, and is guaranteed for 40 years. I don't plan on ever using shingles again, have converted most of my buildings to steel! With shingles you might get 20 years, then you get to hire somebody to come out, and replace your shingles again. LOL And NO, it is not so loud in my house when it rains, that you can't hear yourself think. LOL And No, I don't sell/install steel roofing, I'm just sold on the stuff.   I can't recommend a good or fair roofer/contractor, I do my own work. I can recommend a good/fair electrician/concrete guy. If you pm me, I'll tell you a plumber NOT to hire.   Jim

      RLG, good to hear and I think that's one of the most important tips I've learned from this forum. Trust your electronics!

      I haven’t seen many posts lately which means I’m not the only one struggling to find fish. I ventured out of Frazer into Big Bay today and fished 20 fow on a shore line pulling a spinner/crawler  at 1 mph and got a limit of nice fish in a half an hour. They hit almost as soon as I got the bait to the bottom. Just me and the lab- - otherwise, we would’ve put a lot more fish in the boat. It was the third place I tried. It’s good advice to fish where you see fish on the sonar.  RLG

      Sounds like a great time, Hoey. Keeping active with old friends is really important...……….as I have advanced well past "middle age", most of my friends I fished/hunted with have either died or quit the outdoors pursuits. Bummer. However, Thursday I head to Morson with one of my remaining partners to spend a few days at his place at Sportsmans Landing, always a good time. That part of LOW is really fun! Endless rock humps to fish, and little traffic. A couple years ago, I got my bud into jigging raps and similar lures. Big fun jig rappin the sand flats in that area. And usually, we catch a few crappies for a great meal. One observation  after many years of fishing LOW north and east of Big Traverse involves the rock humps.....anyone with thoughts on this, please weigh in. In big Traverse, the rock bite peaks in July and slowly peters out. There are still good days, but by late August, you have to run and gun to find fish on the rocks. However, in Sabaskong, Little Traverse and areas north and east of Big Traverse, the rock bite stays very strong. On Whitefish Bay, my best rock fishing was the last couple weeks of August. My thought is it is because of the pressure on  the US side and the lack thereof on the Canada side. Opinions? Good luck.

      I was fishing 18-25 fow.  I cruised several humps that topped out around 17-20 fow and found fish on about 1/2 of them.  I only fished spots I marked good numbers of fish on them.   By horizontal I mean either making long cast and snapping the jigging rap back sharply or trolling 1- 1.2 mph and having enough line out that there would be a little slack before my next snap of the rod at that speed/depth.  You don't feel the hit.  The fish is just there on the next snap that then turns into a hook set.   I've also fished them vertically but many times the more horizontal presentation works better.  At least for me.   I caught fish on both 7&9 sizes.  But the 7s are easier on my arm with repetitive snapping of the rod.  These fish heavy and I've fished them like this in more than 30 feet of water. Metallic perch was the best color for me this weekend followed by rainbow trout or chartreuse.   Even caught several pike and crappies doing this type of fishing.  Moonshine shiver minnows work well too.  They get the nod when there is most on the bottom.  They fish cleaner that the jigging raps.

      when was the most recent time it started normally?   You did start mixing oil in gas when you disconnected the injection system, right?
