East Long Lake

4 posts in this topic

Anyone up in this area have any info on this lake? Not sure exactly what road it's off of, but understand it's a fairly small lake with a very small public access that is rutted up most of the time.......maybe 15 miles or so north of Pilager..........

I know this lake and it's stunted with silver dollar size panfish that are just bait robbers. Not trying to discourage you but I have put some time on this lake and never have had any success winter or summer. The water is also stained a bit and the clearity isn't much more than 3-4ft.

The access too is very sketchy because of how to get in there and nobody plows a road. Its more a snowmobile trail in the winter and you'll more likely damage some of the trail just getting in.

good luck

Thanks MR.............what have you fished for on it? Bass, Walleye, Pike?...........Sounds like just another of those many big pond type lakes, sunnies and bullheads?

mainly sunnys or crappies and what you do find is stunted fish. Lakes like these really need a good winter kill. Most lakes do die off with cold and deep snow naturally but you know what the winter trends have been like the past 5-10 years...

You're better off trying your luck at Rock lake close to Pillager for pannies.... wink.gifwink.gif

      New to the forum. Glad I was able to find a good forum for trout fishing in the SE area! I had probably my best year of trout fishing this year on the whitewater. Here are a few that I managed to get throughout the year. The first one was in the 16" range and the second one was about 18".

      Whose road is that at the bottom of the picture? I am thinking that one of JR's roads is the one that goes off at a diagonal, the second road from the bottom of the picture. The road I am asking about seems more toward the reservation line.   Thanks.

      Myr Mar is open on the northwest side. Garrison sports is too, I believe.

      Fish the deeper holes and you'll find some suspended cats. They seem to be cruising around about 28-32' under the ice.
