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

      It's a small lake. Have ice fished out there in the winter. There is some decent crappies out there.  Never fished in the summer time. I want to say max depth is 25-30.  
    • eyeguy 54
      yep, lotta lead on the sippi from this guy. LOL  sometimes I do a simple drop shot setup. tie a #4 hook on and leave about a foot or less of line. then just pinch the split shot on bottom and jig away. didnt have to tie on so many hooks.  
    • MinnowBuckets
      Nice report! Glad to see there are others still getting out on the river too. I need to get simpler in my presentation and use the fathead/split shot technique more often. I can’t afford to lose 3 swimbaits or rapalas each time out. 😭
    • eyeguy 54
      dont talk yourself out of it. might hit a couple spots again this coming week for fun. Over the years I have had off and on luck till thanksgiving time. Couple pics from this fall.  I just like a fathead on 1/8 oz jig or a plain hook with a split shot. Quite the battle when the 28 inch northern tried to eat the bass. It got stuck on the jig so reeled them both in. Ran into the current two times. Fight city. LOL 
    • MinnowBuckets
      Yeah, I’ve thought of ice fishing below some of the dams in the area, but I always end up talking myself out of it. 
    • Stick in Mud
      I've been doing OK, too.  I dunno how long the bite last. In the old days when we had real, manly winters, we'd whack 'em through the ice down below the Sartell dam, so I imagine they'll keep biting as long as we're willing to tough it out. 
    • MinnowBuckets
      Thanks guys! I wonder how much longer the bite will last with the cold temps this fall. The water is already extremely cold for this time of year. Anyone else have any reports?
    • eyeguy 54
      nice job!  gotta love the fall bite on the sippi. 
    • JeremyCampbell
      Awesome catch MinnowBuckets!!😎

      So Gimruis has a problem with meat hunters on the lake.  Then he should be promoting the use of cameras instead of guns when out hunting birds or animals.  If you want to fish for sport and look down on those that fish for food then go get a hand held fishing game and sit on the shore.  Believing something is the truth doesn't mean that it is.  You can say the lake isn't mismanaged all you want and that the surveys work because the people using them have advanced degrees.  I work for people in construction that have degrees but don't know crap about what actually happens on a construction site.  The worst thing to happen to electricians is schools putting out project management courses.  Now instead of people with practical knowledge running jobs we have people schooled in theory with big ideas and egos to match.  You Gimruis seem to be the same.  Saying that people shouldn't fish for food and saying they are the problem is insanity.  You have no place in this conversation.
