Long Lake Help

5 posts in this topic

Every year our family spends the last week in July on Long Lake. In the past eight years I just haven’t caught the fish that I used to. In the past I’ve concentrated my efforts on the northern third of the lake. Any suggestions for next week??? Also I have noticed on my fish locator, what appears to be big fish in massive numbers out in the middle of the lake anywhere from 70 to 120 ft. Anyone know what these may be and how to catch them???

My buddy has a cabin on Long I make it up there about four times a year to fish. We mostly fish for bass and northern with jigs and rattle traps and do really good. His dad fishes eye's with lindy rigs and leaches he got a 30in earlier this year that way in 7FOW. I would say look for the stumps and deeper structures to find the fish, theres and a lot of good points and flats you can try. Its a great lake I always love to fish, and your right we always will make tons of massive fish from 50-100fow and we can never catch them so I cant help you there. Does anyone else no what biggins are roaming that deep water?

Alot of those fish you see suspended are walleyes. They are out in the cooler water feeding of the ciscos.Alot of people catch them in the late evening and on into the dark of night, trolling with crankbaits that can work their way down to 25 feet or so. Then the walleyes will come up and hit them.

Give it a try, it's not my favorite way to fish, but some guys use this method alot.

      Sorry if I was didn't make myself clear.   What I meant was can  a place like the landing make a living from the people who come to the higher end resorts and want to go out to eat?     Clearly Ludlow's has a target market and does very well with it.  Whether that same target market can sustain the landing is another question.   Seems like maybe not...     I still wonder why they don't put the menu online.... In this day and age,  I am used to checking out a place online before walking in the door.

      I've never used boards, what are the best boards to use with braid? I'll be using them on Superior and for eyes inland... I've heard the offshore ones need their clips upgraded to use with braid.

      Walleye, just make it look like you are fishing for crappies.

      Trout! Although, I don't think there are too many (if any, at all?) trout streams in the Ely area.
